I think in one of my other blogs I told you about our miracle calf, Passion’s Miracle, well I have a new name for her—Escape Artist. Between her and our other heifer Lainey they are like two little boys getting into trouble constantly (except they are girls).
One day I was getting ready to leave and heard a noise on the back porch. Here was Lainey getting ready to take a nap. Upon further investigation I found Miracle in the driveway. She had banged her head on the gate (that wasn’t latched) just enough to get her head through and get the gate open. So out she went. Two days later I caught her doing the same thing again but this time she was headed to the porch. Seems they really like the carpet that I have on the porch for our two dogs, Daisy and Kodi. Kodi, of course, is scared to death of the cows but Daisy really likes them except when they come on the porch. She tries to hide in the corner—a little bark would probably get them moving but that doesn’t seem to happen.
Miracle’s other favorite thing to do is get into the hay barn and run and tear through the barn. She’ll even climb on the hay if I don’t get there fast enough. Now that the hay is in the barn she can’t figure out quite how to get to the top and I think I’m getting everything latched down tight enough to keep up with her. At three months she is a terror, maybe going through the terrible threes?? But what an amazing little girl to work with. She halter broke with no problem and you can walk into the corral and put a halter on her with little effort. I can hardly wait to get her to a show with lots of competition to see how she does.
This week I am sending another picture of Daisy. This is what happens when James (my grandson) comes to visit. He is also the official owner of Daisy. She can be so sweet and so good but as soon as James walks in the door she is everywhere, including the living room furniture. Life would certainly not be as exciting without her around to keep me moving (and vacuuming dog hair). Gotta love em both.
Hope your summer is going as great as mine. Lots of work getting done. Isn’t this weather absolutely perfect!!
