Ruminants are a perfectly normal thing to possess when you live in upstate New York. It's just moving scenery. It's kind of like the equivalent of Great Danes. It's the way you keep your grass mowed. It's the way you keep your weed-whacking to a minimum.
Never trust any complicated cocktail that remains perfectly clear until the last ingredient goes in, and then immediately clouds.
