Example text

The more far-seeing ranchers are beginning to turn their thoughts to this matter. I have never used artificial insemination. Grenadier, my first bull, came from Scotland, and I went there to choose him. A woman can read an animal as well as a man — it simply requires a tutored eye. In Alberta, buying a bull is generally thought to be cowboy country, but in Scotland there are women who are considered to be good herdsmen, and are thus accepted. 43 Ronan Nelson at Muckairn, Taynuilt, Oban, whose family owns the oldest Highland herd, mixed this bloodline with the Luing herd to create Grenadier.

I surmised from this that they had just flown in from the south for the summer and were totally tired after a long long flight. I could lie on my tummy on the earth and look down upon them but they could not see me. They were at rest. Had they known of me, it would not have been so restful. The next day, nearer home, I went for an early-morning visit and they happened to be on the opposite side of the creek and they quacked and quacked and tried tirelessly to quack me out of existence. I knew it was nesting time, but I thought both of us could share the creek, so I stayed for an hour with their quacking going on incessantly.

Slow wheeling of setting sun, splinter sunbeam rays And Willow happy and pausing on each splinter Taking in the presence of last lingering light, Out to experience the Summer Solstice. When the light was full and golden, The path to infinity appeared across the foothills. Wherever sun beams through the trees, there she sits. Cat, you are a poem. Up like a flash, eyes emblazoned. Wherever sun beams through the trees, there you sit. Mike came from the Glenbow Museum and Lloyd left his herd of 5,000 reindeer on the northern-most coast to come to dinner.
