He has three pit bulldogs. All are very sweet and live in his big fenced backyard with their own heated doghouses. They have a self-feeder so I don't need to visit every day. Same with the two cats that live in the hay shed but they are WILD! One of them will sometimes show up when I fill their feeder but I've only seen the other one once the whole time I've been visiting. I can't pet the one who comes around either but I can talk to it and it will meow back. Too bad I don't speak cat. Actually it may be just as well that I don't know what it's saying. LOL!
Zack also has a cow. She has a self-watering trough (so do dogs and cats) she has plenty of hay so I really don't need to do anything for her. Still that cow was a challenge. I wanted to pet her. My daddy raised calves when I was a little girl and I always loved to pet them. They would suck on my fingers and try to eat my shirt.
Not so much with this little cow. If you can call a 300+ pound cow little. I finally got her to come close enough by offering her clover from my side of the fence. She got almost close enough for me to touch her face but when I reached out...boom! She jumped back out of my reach. It's been a week and so far she comes to the front fence when she sees my car coming down the driveway, but I still can't get close enough to pet her. Maybe I need sugar cubes?
I think Zack named her hamburger (we won't even talk about why) but I call her Molly Moo. Maybe I'll have her tamed before he finishes this job. There is snow on the ground as I write this. I don't want to pet a cow bad enough to tromp around in the snow and mud to try and make friends with a reluctant bovine. 😉 Stay tuned. I'll post if I manage to wrangle the Molly Moo.
Meanwhile, look at this giant cow someone asked Zack to move for them. One never knows what a person with a skid loader can do.
