Is He Smiling At Me?

I'm convinced he is. This is one of last year's calves who has been blessed with an underbite. His name? Smiley. He just makes me laugh.

A Gander Named Lucy
There's been a casualty at the ranch. Lucy has finally attacked the wrong animal. I've watched him attack cows with calves, spin around on their tails, nip at horses heels, tear hair out of unsuspecting dogs, chase down cats, been held down by irate animals 1000x his size ...etc...anyway he went after Rebel yesterday. Rebel only jumped over him and out of the way, but Lucy chased after him anyway and when Rebel came down he stepped on Lucy's left wing. There was a loud 'snap' and poor Lucy went away salking. Rebel basically snapped his wing right off. The only thing holding it together was skin and feathers. So I played vet and hopefully reset his wig and put him FAR away from anything that he can attack. Though this incident seems to have humbled him some. He's all wrapped up.

Next installment: Baby Envy
Preview: Yes, it's another one, and another one, and another one....
Spur, an Aussie/Border Collie/Heeler cattle pup, and Maverick, The Wonder Dog, sleep off a long day of work.
