    So I come home from the farmers market where I sell my chickens for a living. I inadvertently left a door open and what do I find? One of our baby cows has marched right on in, had a good snack on my DH's bonsai, dropped the chilli plant pot on the ground out of disgust, sauntered throughto my youngest sons bedroom and deposited two presents on his carpet and then continued to my eldest son's bedroom to repeat above - only difference is that he decided to walk through it on the way out. [​IMG] My dog Bobby is firmly ensconced on my couch (and he's VERY much an outside dog) watching the preceedings and my parrot running up and down his cage howling with laughter - wouldn't live in town for all the tea in China....

    Sounds perfect!! I would not want the cleaning of the carpet bit though! Where would we be without our animals for entertainment?

    Lol... great story! I do feel for you trying to clean the manure out of the carpet, though! We once hauled a calf in the back of my sister's Blazer and, even though we put some plastic down to protect the carpet, we still had some scrubbing to do! Good luck on the clean up! Thanks for sharing your story!

    Good point Debi! But oh my, what a story! Hope the bonsai makes it.
