I've been over to the farm for a couple of days. We're continuing to work around the place. This morning we had a few "surprise visitors".
If you could have seen the whole thing it would have been hilarious. There were 19 kinda tame cows that had gotten out of the pastures on down and across the road from us...so they must have just come up the first place they could and came into the front drive, looked around and found fencing everywhere so they just ran around the side and back of the yard until they couldn't go any farther. We hadn't heard a thing but were in the back living room assessing paint on the walls with the window blinds up and there they were. Suddenly Curry yelled, "those cows are in the YARD, not the pasture" and he headed out running. Anyway, he blocked them in the side yard and yelled at me to move my Explorer in beside the Blazer so they couldn't get out.
I am not experienced in cow herding at all so Curry told me to be quiet and don't make any sudden moves. Now that can give you pause when a bunch of cows are looking your way as your husband is in the house calling the guy who leases the pastures. He found the people (as they didn't belong to the guy who leases our place)and they came right out and we got them in the back pens until they could be loaded on a trailer this afternoon. They are kinda tame according to their owner thank goodness and didn't spook. I took a couple of pictures...Here's one along with a collage of pictures my daughter in law took last week and sent me. ..and another of my son, grandson, and Curry taken at the same time. Looks like life is going to be interesting.
