So happy to be able to write you this year, dear Santa! I’ve come a long way from that tiny, lonely, muddy and cold paddock I lived in before I arrived here at this fun place!
Santa, I’m sorry. I’ve been rather a naughty boy this year. See, I discovered fences. What I mean is, the fences sort of came up on me and surprised me – suddenly they were there, and …. then they were not! We played this game a lot. The fence would stand there, perfectly still, and then I’d say, “ok now, ready, set, go! Here I come!” I don’t understand how the fence could every single time be so dumb as to not move out of my way. Well, now, farmers all over the world who have cows know about this problem. And they also know about the 7 am calls “um… yes, your neighbor…. yes, cows out here….” We bovines think it’s a great game, but farmers have a distinct lack of sense of humor when it comes to these events. So they invented the electric wire. It’s oh-so-thin and goes along the inside of the fence to protect it. THAT is how dumb the fence is. It needs to be protected by a wire. So, yeah, we’ve got some up now in one of my pastures, and I can hear the charger when it’s on so I don’t need to even go near the fence to test it. Nosirree Bob, I’m much smarter than that fence. So here are the insulators we need to do the rest of the farm: https://tinyurl.com/insulators-for-petey Sigh. We probably need 3 or 4 packets. If you want to get really fancy, you can send some replacement boards too 🙂 (deck boards, 1″x6″x8′) Umm. We’ve kind of gone through a lot of them this year.
Now on to the fun stuff! Have you ever tried kelp? I’ll bet you have, living up north and all. Well kelp is SO delicious and it’s also incredibly good for my bones and my immune system. If you send us some, I promise I’ll share it with Brandy and Carmen. Really, no, I will! https://tinyurl.com/kelp-for-petey
Santa, I just LOVE salt blocks. You will see me licking on these Himalayan salt blocks all the time because they are tasty and, I guess, a bit exotic. I like exotic! https://tinyurl.com/salt-block-for-petey All the animals like them, and they’re so handy because they come with a rope so you can hang it anywhere (except on the electric fence). But I’m the one who REALLY loves the salt blocks. Please send me one or two, Santa!
Now, I’m going to be honest here. I’m kind of a favorite of folks who visit. I’m not bragging, just saying that people love to let me lick their arms and faces and make googly eyes at me. I’m super super friendly (but don’t come in my pasture or I’ll start playing dodgeball with you … and you’re the ball). But that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t welcome a sponsor to make me feel extra special! https://shop.stargazingfarm.org/product/petey/
