It’s finally here: the totally unanticipated, first annual New Moo Awards, honoring the most exceptional cows and calves of the Bar D Triangle for the 2013 calving season! (Stay tuned all week for all winners to be announced.)
The winner of the less-than distinguished Much Ado About Nothing Award is Clarabelle! Ever since her first calf, Cisco, was born, her anxiety has been through the roof. An unexpected move on our part rings an alarm in her already cortisone-flooded brain—we’ve never hurt her or her calf, and neither did the folks who raised her, so who knows what she is afraid of—and any sighting of Bodie, our ranch dog, appears to arouse wild imaginings of wolf packs attacking her calf.
In stark contrast is Panda, the winner of the Que Será, Será (Whatever Will Be, Will Be) Award! To say that Panda is easy-going is an understatement. She’s always taken good care of her calf, Pancho, but has never wasted a single second or ounce of energy worrying about him—or anything else for that matter. It seems that nothing can ruffle Panda’s feathers!
