Mary the Cow
Mary is our milk producing cow but she is also like a pet to us. She has been on the farm for 4 years now and keeps getting bigger and bigger. She is the same cow that kicked Billy the goat for trying to suckle her teats. She is also the same one who ate every living plant on our cabbage patch one Sunday while we were all in church. Mary is the funny one in the farm.
Mary refuses to be in the same area as the other cows. She has taken it upon herself to attack any of the other cows when they are put out to graze in the fields. For some reason or another, she feels that they should not be around her. She was the first cow on our farm and that could be a reason for attacking all the other cows. She therefore grazes on her own.
I have been around cows for a long time though at times I feel like Mary is not just a cow but reincarnation of someone. She acts like she understands everything that is going on. When we are sad she will come and stand at the window as though offering comfort. She is a very thoughtful animal and she just makes one wonder all the time. I will have to keep a close eye on her because I feel that there is more than meets the eye about that cow.
