Seriously, I need to write a book. We went to our friend's house last night and got home around 10:30. I pulled into the driveway and my lights hit the cow standing out in front of the barn..........which means they got lose out of the pasture. It moved into the pasture which holds my garden and there were the rest happily munching away. I was upset thinking that they were eating my plants but they didn't. Anyway, they went over and stood next to the gate that led them into the pasture with the barn so we opened it up. Two got spooked and took off in the other direction.
It was dark. Pitch black and we don't have any lights outside on the farm and I can't get the ones to work that are here. When the previous owner comes next month I will have him show me the trick of turning the lights on. But I digress.
Here we are hunting them in the dark. We found the gate they got out of. TL and his friend had gotten rid of some weeds for me and forgot to close the gate. I felt bad because I had to call the owner so late because I couldn't remember how many cows there were.....he was adding some and took some home, another one had had a calf.....too much for my little mind to keep track of.
The other two had ended up going through the gate before we shut it and got back in themselves. In the end, we caught all before the owner even got there and he only lives ten minutes away.
good times. good times on the homestead!
