I was out by the grain bins this morning coming back from a short walk-about, when I saw several geese land in the field I was walking by
I was delighted!
I have been hollering to the large skeins of geese, as they fly by, that they are always welcome here.
Now Romeo and Lady were coming on to the same corn field. As I stayed there and watched Lady the Mule walked as fast as she could to the rustling flock–walked right into the flock scattering the geese.
The geese rose up in a little tiny flutter to get out of Lady’s way…then settled down in a flurry of feathers.
Up Lady came again scattering the geese so she could pass by.
I was a little afraid the geese would all rise up and fly away, but they didn’t. Just settled themselves over a small way and started pecking up loose corn.
Then that silly mule decided she has reached the perfect spot to take her morning DUST bath. Down she went…rolling this way and that way, so hard and fast the dust rose off the ground in puffs.
Romeo just looked at her twisting and rolling—-and walked right on by like a bath of that nature were not for him (today).
A short little pleasant story, to start the day.
