Baby Blue Ran Into The Water.

Baby Blue ran into the water, but never having been near any water except that in the drinking trough in the lot, she knew nothing about a lake or deep water, and before she knew it she stepped into a hole and under she went.

“The Welsh Rabbit took another bite of toasted bread, and sobbed aloud.”

Paul opened the door and saw a strange sight. Ted’s Noah’s Ark was standing in the centre of the room, and all the animals were trotting about as they pleased.

Fun Without People!

An Old Fable Re-Told.  –  By Aesop Junior.

There was once a donkey – otherwise an ass – though a donkey can hardly have been even other-wise! Well, this ass (I do not speak sneeringly of him, for donkeys cannot help being asses), as I was saying, this creature lived in the strange country known as Animal-land, where there are no people, and we can only guess at the fun that goes on.

Miss. Long Legs!

Miss-Long-Legs-Cow-&-Calves

Miss. Long Legs took it at a bound.

“Mercy, see that cow run!” exclaimed the red cow. “The farmer discovered her and set his dogs on her.”

“Land sakes!” exclaimed old Brindle, “she is going to run into that barbed wire fence without seeing it.”

But no, Miss. Long Legs took it at a bound, showing it was not the first fence of the kind she had jumped.

“Oh, what a shame! Just see what a lot of corn she has knocked over and trampled down, dodging those dogs.”

“Here she comes now!” exclaimed the red cow. “Let us be very cool to her to show her we don’t approve of such high-headed, ill-bred manners as one neighbor’s cow stealing corn out of another neighbor’s field.”

Hey Diddle Diddle, The Cat and The Fiddle!

Hey diddle diddle, the Cat and the Fiddle,

The Cow jumped over the Moon,

The little Dog laughed to see such sport,

And the Dish ran after the Spoon.

A Calf in a Pail!

Illustration:  Calf Stuck.  COWS AND CALVES.  Written by Frances Trego Montgomery.  Illustrations by Hugo Von Hofsten.  Barse & Hopkins Publishers: New York. 1912.

“Stuck their whole head into it.”

When the calves were a little older, the farmer tried to teach them to drink out of a pail, but they either upset it, put their foot into it, or stuck their whole head into it so deep that when they came out even their eyes were filled with milk.
