MOM - she at it again!!
Now that the deep snow is melting somewhat that gives Esmeralda a chance to stock Chief again and make passes at him. Now before we all get mushy about this just know that at any time if Chief really felt he had enough he would put her back into her place. I look at it this way - we have all known some folks who are just too kind for their own good. You know the type - gives a million chances, always willing to talk it through even when the other person is not listening. Then there are the broken folks like the film stars of today who go to jail, then rehab, land back in jail, sent back to rehab and so on till they end up either dead or no longer the public eye.... This is how I view this relationship here in my pasture. They must like it or it would not continue... I call it "Going Around The Mountain" - you do it over and over again thinking the view will change but it is just going round and round. I am famous for this so I can not point fingers and these two..
One thing Chief gets from this relationship is another hard working guard animal. Esmeralda is out there working the pasture against predators and stands in front of any danger that might come her way. I can't help but remember that when like this morning those ribs are still giving me pain - she is one tough cookie and for that I see why Chief puts up with her.
I thought today I might work on one of those "Around the Mountain" issues that has me stuck in the pasture... How about you?? Some might call it a New Years Resolution but I think we can make those choice any day of the year. Want to be Brave and share one with me??
