“Never Turn My Back on a Cow”
A poem about sorting at the V6 Ranch by Charlene O’Neil
Okay, this is a new one for me,
But what a hoot as I spin and go “Weee” –
There goes that cow, escaping from me!
It’s a Charolais with a tremendous IQ,
And my pony’s going to sort her –
Even if it takes an hour or two.
I turn my back, and there she goes
A lesson learned quickly –
Always stay on your toes.
This Charolais is a challenge
But we’re up for it, my pony and me,
As we cut her off, mirror, never lose sight –
Yep, we got her this time!
What fun I’m having, a new adventure,
Gotta be quick, but steady –
Never turn my back on a cow.
