Living in the country, I wind up learning country things.
Who knew that calves could be escape artists between the second and third wires?
I never dreamed I’d be worrying about untangling a goat either when I moved here. After all, I’d lived here before and never untangled a goat in all those years. I never worried about loose calves then either.
But I like having farmers I can ask questions and get answers like, they milk at six, they’ll be home. (It was 5:30!)
I do try and notice the Earth, although I’m not a very back to Nature or dig in the dirt kind of girl. But I take the web of life seriously. And I work hard at being a good neighbor, at doing good. So, when the cows are at Peace, I can be too.
(and besides last night was the night for the animals to have the gift of speech if you’re a Pagan, you wanted him to be around to talk to the sheep, didn’t you? And you didn’t want him to be on the loose…)
Peace on Earth everyone… and watch out for free ranging calves.
