When a City Girl Goes Country

Published

There are things that cannot be forced so why do we sometimes try to make stuff happen that should and usually could wait for another day? We only cause ourselves unnecessary stress when we get impatient. Allowing things to happen in due time makes life much easier.

My best example of this when speaking of cows is when wanting to move your herd to a new pasture, and they are simply not ready to go. How can you tell they are not ready?

When we approach our herd, driving our Ranger into the pasture where they are, if they are ready to move, they will immediately head toward the gate. Many times, when they are ready, the herd will have already gathered at the next gate waiting for us to notice and make it magically open for them.

If they are not ready to move yet, they totally ignore us or give us the, “Heck no we won’t go,” look. It does not matter how much we call them or drive around trying to round them up. If they do not want to go yet, they will not budge.

Mumblety-Peg

I was thumbing through the Netflix channels when, there it was, the great western television series, “Lonesome Dove.” I eagerly watched, for the 10th time, when five minutes into the episode, there was a scene where Newt, PeaEye and Dish were playing a knife game called Mumblety-peg. I had completely forgotten about the game of Mumblety-peg.

Mumblety-peg can be a dangerous game if you choose to play it that way. One brainless way is to see how close you can throw your knife to your feet without slicing your toes. Newt, PeaEye and Dish were playing the game safely by staying away from their toes.
