|Our new best friend|
Thank God for 4-wheelers! I know many farmers and ranchers have done perfectly fine without 4-wheelers for years, but man are they handy. Especially for two people who are already short on time as it is. I originally didn't want one because I thought we both could use it as a way to exercise. I think I've gotten plenty of exercise this week, especially with stringing 10,000 feet of hi-tensile wire. One word of advice: ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS have a spinning Jenny when unrolling hi-tensile wire unless you are a glutton for punishment. Ask us how we know this one...
And some more cattle pictures:
|Range cubes are handy for making friends with cattle.|
|A little nervous at first.|
|This cow has it figured out..range cubes = yummy!|
|Hey # 25|
|Our 2 year old bull. Definitely need to put some pounds on.|
|Such a pretty coloration on this cow.|
Jon was taking these pictures last week when I was sick, so I never got to experience how cows react to range cubes. We had a cow that got out yesterday and all it took was me walking to the corner with rattling a bucket of range cubes for them to come running. And I mean running...it's a little intimidating for a big pregnant cow with horns to come running at you. I definitely had an escape plan figured out in case she didn't stop.
As I said, it's moving week. And it's snowing...again...will it ever stop... Hopefully the snow will all be melted by the time we move on Thursday. I will keep my fingers crossed and double crossed.
