    People continue to amaze me with their comments about animals. Our sheep when we had them, came to the call of “Bertha, Bertha”.
    My cows come on the trot when I holler “Come Boss”. The horses respond immediately from anywhere on the place when I whistle. They all know where the water is and when I drive in from being off the ranch, they check to see if the pickup turns in at the barn because they know there’s going to be something there for them. The cattle spread themselves across the pastures and as Mr. Prichard said, they don’t do the lawnmower thing. One learns a lot from just watching their behavior.
