What's the first clue that trouble is looming around the corner?

Could it be the silence when I pulled into the driveway tonight? no screaming donkeys, no baa'ing sheep, no thundering hoof beats?
Could the second clue be the three piles of horse poop I wade thru in thedark of the back yard?
Could the third clue be the open gate to the barnyard?
Could the fourth clue be the open barn doors?
Could the fifth clue be the 150 pounds of hay scattered in the aisles?
And could the sixth and final clue be the silent, fully fed and staring equine, sheep and llama bodies lined up along the stall walls?
Luckily none of them were brave enough to try sneaking past Petunia to get to the feed.
We lucked out this time. I think I had a premonition this morning on the way to work, next time I am turning around and coming home.
