Here you go sister. I don't think your landlord could object to this one.









I'm not a country girl, but I think that is a bull....looks like horns to me!  Wink

Speaking of bulls, one time at the county fair we were looking at the bulls and cows.  Well, all of a sudden right behind us was a farmer leading a gigantic bull by a nose ring!!  Shocked  Boy, did we move fast!!  Cheesy

Hello Angel,

You didn't offend anyone - not even close. Christians are allowed to have some fun, and we aren't an exception. In fact, Christians should be the happiest people on the face of the earth. I think that all of us enjoy some fun and humor every day. If nothing else, it helps us get our minds off of big problems around the world for a few minutes.

Love In Christ,
Tom


 


Absolutely agree, God is a God of joy, He has a great sense of humor too, anyone who doubts that should just go lok in the mirror  Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin

And then just take a moment to think this is me, and God loves me just the way I look.  Grin Grin Grin Grin

I don't think that they would float to well and I am sure they wouldn't do well on a boat either (except Noah's Ark)

Right....I didn't know bulls were that tall and huge!!  The farmer leading him didn't even "beep" to warn us.  Smiley

My mom got chased by a bull once when she was a young girl.  Her mom told her to go over a fence because she saw some good mushrooms over there.  Well, there was a bull in that pasture!  My mom went running for her life and back over the fence....she did get a long gash and still has the scar!  But, at least, the bull didn't get her.

Pastor Roger, thanks for letting me know cows have horns, too.  I told you I wasn't a country girl.  Cheesy

Not a problem.   Wink    Coming from a long line of farmers I sometimes forget that others don't know these things as it is second nature to me. Most farmers de-horn their cows to prevent them goring each other. I helped my Aunt de-horn a number of hers. The fun one was the big brown swiss. She was one big cow and I had to use a step ladder to do it. She kept swinging her head around and knocking me off the ladder. My Aunt was cackling worse than a chicken calling her chicklets.

Oh dear....must have been funny to see.  Cheesy

My mom (although an animal lover) didn't have much luck around farm animals apparently.  The Bandy rooster used to chase her and one time it jumped up on her back/neck.  Her dad made chicken dinner out of him after that event.  She also somehow got a bee in her hair and her dad had to take care of that, too.  Gee, maybe it's good I don't live in the country....could be hereditary!  Grin

We had banty roosters also. One of them also jumped on my back but made it's way up to my shoulder and perched there. After that he would perch there while I walked around and worked outside. I called him Charlie Wooster after the cook on Wagon Train because he was small and scrappy like him but inside he was really a loving character.

Are Banty roosters usually mean?  From what my mom said, it seemed like they were....or maybe they just had a mean one.

They lived in the country during the Depression so every Sunday her dad would kill a chicken for dinner.  He also had a small vegetable garden and there were fruit trees.  He was a disabled vet (got gassed in the war) and got a small pension.  After they had to move (their town and ten others in PA got covered by the Youghiogheny Dam), they moved back to Pittsburgh.

Not all banties are mean. I have seen other fullsized breeds that were meaner than most bantys. I guess the bantys get the rap of being mean because they are so small that sometimes they have to be really scrappy in order to survive, especially if there is a lot of bigger chickens around them.

One of my aunts had nothing but bantys. Her rooster was pretty complacent most of the time unless you entered the hen house and he didn't know you.
