We have a grass carp. Well, probably more than one. But, in our back pond – there’s just one. It’s a pretty new pond, you see. Not a lot of vegetation. And kind of seasonal. So we only put one grass carp back there.
Tonight, while the horses were eating, we took a ride down to the back pond. To check on the grass carp’s welfare. Please note – we haven’t named the grass carp. That would be weird.
We noticed a significant lack of….well….grass! Which immediately caused us consternation and concern. What to do? We’re not really sure what a grass carp might eat other than grass. Maybe some hay? Some chaff? Chaff is chopped up hay and a little molasses (our old guy gets that to supplement his other feed). Perhaps some ragweed? We gathered up some of each and carefully threw it into the pond.
We don’t want our un-named grass carp to starve. Obviously. He’s the only one in the pond. Do you think he thinks he’s on some barren planet somewhere at the end of a portal (yes, I’ve been watching Marvel – Agents of Shield!)? Do grass carp think?
It’s not weird to worry about your grass carp. Right?
