Last night hubby and I heard the dog going crazy. We went outside and could hear the familiar sound of the elk jumping the upper fence. There is nothing quite like the sound of wire being pinged by elk hooves...unforgettable! As we stood listening my thoughts strayed to the camel who before he was used to the elk would stampede them down the hill and away from the pasture...
No more...now he just stands and watches them...doing nothing.
This following story is from over a year ago.
Unfortunately nothing has changed!
Having a camel is useful for two things. He adds authenticity to our church's live nativity and he is to keep the elk out of his pasture. I ask nothing more of the big guy...
Good morning Gizmo...whatcha doing?
Watching the elk.
Ah I see they're back.
Hey, wait a minute...aren't those two on your side of the fence?
I suppose they are.
Well don't just stand there...chase them out!
LOOK you big dummy, they are all lining up to come over the fence!
I see that...no need to shout.
Ohhh they are going to wreck the fence...
Wow, that one can really jump!
and eat all the grass...I'm gonna have to buy more hay!
I love hay!
Hey that one is just trying to push his way through!
I thought only I did that, chuckle
Very funny, now do something...
Boy I wish I could jump like that!
Yeah that is what I need, a jumping camel!
Do I detect a bit of sarcasm?
Just a tad.
Look you big good for nothing, even the baby elk aren't afraid of you!
I'm a lover not a fighter, what can I say!
