Rochelle, TX – People often refer to nonhuman vertebrates as dumb animals. But for ranchers like author Ken Bull, who work closely with animals, they know that animals are not dumb. In this book, he introduces various animals and proves their intelligence through these ranching stories and experiences. The Intelligence of Dumb Animals features both farm or ranch and wild animals.
The stories in this book show that animals are not dumb. Ranching is a business of properly fitting the animals to the land so that the plants from nature are converted to food for humans. Cows, sheep and goats were raised on the ranch amongst the deer, turkey, coyotes, raccoons, squirrels, opossums, armadillos, and rattle snakes.
Horses, dogs and cats were used to help manage the ranch. The author uses Cowboy poetry to help tell the stories that animals are not dumb. Readers will discover how smart horses, cows, sheep, sheep dogs, raccoons, mean coon, cats, deer, coyotes, and turkey can be.
The cow on the book cover proved that where there is a will there is a way to get to the feed in the truck.
This book will be featured at the New York Library Association Book Exhibit in Saratoga Springs, NY on November 2-5, 2011. For more information on this book, interested parties may log on to http://www.Xlibris.com.
