"Then C.K. found it, a bush of It, about twenty feet away, growing in the midst of a patch of dwarf-cactus, and he was bent over it, examining it with great care.
"This here is a full-growed plant," he said, touching it in several places, gently bending it back, almost caressingly. Finally he stood up again, hands on his hips, looking back at the prostrate cow.
"Must be mighty fine gage," he said.
"Well, I ain't never seen loco-weed make a cow act like that," said Harold, as if that were the important aspect of the incident, and he began absently kicking at the plant.
"That ain't no ordinary loco-weed," said C.K., "... that there is Red-Dirt Marijuana that's what that is." Harold spat, frowning.
"Shoot," he said then, "I reckon we oughtta pull it up and horn it." "I reckon we oughtta," said C.K. They pulled it up.
"Don't gen'Ily take to red-dirt," C.K. remarked, casually, brushing his hands,"... they say if it do, then it's mighty fine indeed—they reckon it's got to be strong to do it, you see."
"Must be pretty dang strong awright," Harold dryly agreed, looking back at the disabled cow, "you think we oughtta git Doc Parks?"
They walked over to the cow.
"Shoot," said C.K., "they ain't nothin' wrong with this cow."
The cow had raised her head, and her eyes followed them when they were near. They stared down at her for a minute or two, and she looked at them, interestedly, still chewing.
"Ole Maybelle havin' a fine time," said C.K., leaning over to stroke her muzzle. "Hee-hee. She high, that's what she is!" He straightened up again. "I tell you right now, boy," he said to Harold, "you lookin' at a very contented cow there!"
