Guess it’s time for another “I wonder, thought/question!
This one may not make sense to those of you who do not have and or love animals. But I do, so here goes….
Where we live there are quite a few cow farms, but this particular one has cows/bulls with a big hump on their backs. I think they are called Brahman, I’m not positive but I think so.
There is a long fenced three sided walk way that these cows walk around, coming to the end is a tree. I have never driven by when there isn’t 6 to 10 cows standing in a circle around this tree.
A month or so ago as we were driving by I noticed that all the cows or bulls where white, except one who was brown. This must have stayed with me in the back of my mind… We have five dogs, four different breeds, and sizes. I have always had animals, but with working and raising kids I have never gotten as close to them as I have these five. Partly I believe is because I’m here with them 24/7 and you really see them in every situation.
A few days later I’m looking at my dogs who are just being dogs, when the vision of the cows comes to mind and then I wondered???
I have been told several times that animals can’t tell colors, but….. I start to wonder what do they see? (I’m sure all the racial problems recently are probably in the back of my head about now). I wonder if they can see at least shades of dark and light? Then I wonder if the see any differences, any kind of animal, and if they react to it like us crazy humans do?
What do you think, know, or wonder? Have you ever seen an animal react differently to another of the same species or of color? Do you think animals have any preferences or prejudice’s?

Do You Laugh When You Wonder?
My mom is always asking questions on random things in life. She is always wondering.
So I thought I would add her wondering question to our website. After all, our natural curiosity and wonder often can lead to those little moments in life that help you laugh.
So with that, let’s share her first one!
I Wonder: Rabbits & Lettuce
My name is Faye, and I’m one of those people who is curious about almost everything. So most of the time I have to find the answer to my questions. I’ve been thinking it may be easier if I reached out to others for help in finding the answers.
Everything I wonder about doesn’t necessarily mean it’s important, but to me it is, if only because I want to know. I’ll give you an example:
I live in the dessert and we have rabbits in our yard, (odd rabbits in a desert, but that’s a question for another time). I have been giving the rabbits any bits and pieces I cut off of vegetables when I am cooking… like celery, carrots, etc. One day I was making a salad, saving the scraps when it hit me….. All our lives we have been told that lettuce has absolutely no nutritional value. So I started thinking why do rabbits eat and thrive on lettuce?
So everyone, what is the answer? Any ideas? Please let me know and anyone else who might read this that now wonders too.
If I find the answer first I will write about it. Till next time…
