Baker Frankford WV J The Joy of Farmin Ella S. When Robert Frost wrote "Some- thing there is that doesn't like a wall," he wasn't talking about our farm animals -- because our ani- mals love fences. When the herd of cows is in a pasture with grass high as their eye- brows it doesn't take them long to crop enough to make their sides bulge. One afternoon, as they lay in the shade chewing and resting, they started wondering what to do with themselves the rest of the day. A two-year-old complained she was bored wilt" standing around sw~tch- =ng her ta~l at the flies. That is when one of me older cows remembered tile fences. "Fences," she sa~d 'were put around the fields to amuse the animals." She and the two-year-old ambled across me field to the fence. The old cow demonstrated how to rue against the posts and w~re while she explained that this action massaged her neck, s,des and ~ips. At the same t~me she worked the posts loose and stretched the wire so that ~t would sag and billow. Soon other of the herd joined in the game and a c~.,If found a brokee wire. It pried at the hole trying to make it o)gger. After a bit it tired of thiS and abandoned the fence to challenge another calf to a game of head wrestling. One of the cows that had been watching inspected the small hole. She poked ner nose through t and shoved hard. Some wires slid and others broke. Soon her whole head was through the fence. She took a couple of bites of grass, declaring to the other cows that the grass on the other side of the fence was the best she had ever put m her mouth. They immed=atety gathered around want- mg to taste this scrumptious fare. She just continued eating and re- fused to allow turns at the hole she had created. This irritates them and they shove and butt her. The fence creaks and groans under this as- sault and more w~res part. As the others continue to punish her she rehnquishes her place. Soon the hole ~s large enough for two cows to put their, heads through at the same time. One cow is dis- comforted by a wire jabbing her neck and withdraws her head. At almost the same time the other cow gets hit in the rear by the shoving herd. Before she realizes it popped through the fence --i like a cork from a bottle. The gaze at her in wonder as she .' freely on the other side. After ~ hesitation they decide to.join In the farmhouse the rings. "Your cows are out," a bor says. The herd is shamefaced as they return to pasture. They hadn't planned out, and the grass really better on the other side One morning the bull was proud and boastful. He stood middle of the field and forth his attributes. '1 am meanest, most powerful Woodrow," he yelled. '1 can double my weight in bulls, lions and wild cats. I have the est herd of cows this side sissippi and I am the father sassiest, sleekest calves. If anyone out there who then let me hear you blow horn." Immediately there angry answer from our ne~ bull across the road. "Why, over-grown Billy Goat, you more than whip a house cat definite you would run from a You sire knock-kneed, calves from your poor, COWS." Angry-eyed and puffing', our bull answered in a screan you back end of a donkey, like a Banty Rooster ---, loud until the shadow from sends you scurrying to hide. beat you to a pulp, bury you dog does his bone." Here he the ground with forefeet as and dug up sod. "Take that and that," he said, as he earth with his head. Then the neighbor's bull "In my sight you're just an in your little hill. See how out and stomp you if you here." Then he sent the clod~ as he stamped and tore and gave forth a savage yell. So the two shouted dares suits, rampaging up and fences until, hoarse and each returned to his own were happy and contented. had vented all their spleen their valor couldn't be cause of the fences in betwee~ A Page For People Who Close To The Earth 772-301 NE 1986 TE~ GL - auto,, air, AM/FM, low miles ............................ 85890.
