Pearly Progress

     It was a good night for Pearl and I.  She has been coming to the barn on a schedule, but seems very wary of me when she comes in to eat.  If I even take a step towards her she bolts.  In an effort to outsmart and out-stubborn her, I pulled out the big guns.  I went into the feed store and asked for their best tasting cow treats.  She never stood a chance.  When she came in to eat her alfalfa, I tossed her a couple cakes (treats).  As she shoved her calf out of the way for one I knew I had won, hehehe.

     Once I had her hooked on the cake, I started tossing them closer to me.  She would have to come close to get her treat.  Soon enough she was at the fence eating out of my hand.  I wanted to try and give her a pet, but one thing at a time. 

     Today was a small victory, and one day closer to a gentle family cow.  God is good.
