Mrs. Cow’s kin clearly enjoyed the first, green grass of the season. Hay is dried fodder which cattle find delicious, but after the long winter, they find the fresh smells of new grass in the air tantalizing.
I took my stand. I considered my options as I stood between the road and the black and white lawn “mowers” as they worked.
- “Should I park the car on the driveway to form a blockade to the road? Well,” I reasoned, “that would be good if cows stayed on the road, but ditches are passable. Cows would only walk around the car. That won’t work.”
- “So, should I try to move the cattle with Faithful, my cow dog?” I thought as I spied the opened gate from which they had all escaped. “They are really happy here eating at this new walk-in restaurant. They likely would get upset and start running every which way. The group would scatter and I would have less control over the situation than I have now.”
- “Maybe I ought to take the car and try to find my husband in the field. But that would take time and then no one would be on hand to keep the cattle in the yard,” I figured.
Just then, I saw on the road in the distance, the Cavalry was on the way!!!
