You all know the idiom that the grass isn’t always greener on the other side of the fence.  It is where we live.  We have too many animals for our acreage and our pastures are definitely overgrazed.  So, our animals are spoiled with extra grain and flakes of alfalfa twice a day.  They certainly aren’t starving.  In fact, one of our rancher friends often comments how all of the animals on our place look pregnant, even the males.  Still, the lusher grass on the other side of our fence line tempts them to always be looking for an opportunity to find a way over or under or through.  Though, when they do, almost always, we find them looking back into our barer pastures at their friends they left behind.  Maybe its because they’re like soldiers who won’t leave a comrade behind.  But, as soon as we open a nearby gate, they’ll rush through the gate to be reunited with their pasture companions.  It’s like they learn that the grass on the other side of the fence may indeed be greener but there’s no place like home.
