Nothing Like A Good Scratch At The Yards

The herd came up to the yards last Sunday.  Yes, we’re still holding up the wall with the digger.  Why? you ask? Because the giant cement post holding the wall up has lost hold of the earth with all the rain we’ve had in the last two years. No big deal as the cows shouldn’t push the fence much …

Cows in the yards.

We’ll fix that fence soon.  It’s on the list.

Triage done.  Off you go herd.

    Isn’t it Remembrance Day? You guys don’t really get holidays, do you? I wish I could put my contractor on rancher’s hours. As it is, well there’s the holiday, then there’s the pont, then there’s the sick days, you get the drift. Maybe I’ll be in my house this time next year. Maybe. Sigh.
