Do you see the serious contemplation on my hubby's face? Yes, he was a thoughtful, intentional buyer today at the local bull and cow sale. We arrived early to be able and walk around in the bull pens, peruse the information on each bull and then try and buy a couple at a reasonable price. Which my husband did do. We got two bulls that are truly Superior, (more on this tomorrow, and be on the ready for a bull naming contest!) Myself, on the other hand, made an incredibly unthoughtful, rash bid and came away with 11 more geriatric cows. What was I thinking? I think I was thinking that they were cute, and looked like they needed a home, and the price was bargain basement. They are all pregnant and they are supposed to have all their teeth, but as we loaded them we couldn't help but notice that a few of them had walkers! And perhaps the full set of teeth they have is because they were wearing dentures. Yikes, I certainly had no plans to buy any cows, I actually have been worried about the shortage of feed and our seemingly lack of rain thus far, so I really must have been blinded by that blue light special. Come on you ladies out there. Surely you know how it is?
