With a Moo Moo here and a Moo Moo there....
Being as though it is winter, we can't leave an automatic waterer hooked up to the stock tank. This is the first week that the cows have been at my MIL's house. So far, so good. Every day we go over, check on cows, fill the water, and just make sure it's all overall good.
Plans are a couple times per week to feed them range cubes and haul hay over just to make sure, but look at that grass. I swear it's almost waist high on me and I'm 5'7" with most of that in my legs. It's lovely.
Yesterday however, we pulled into my MIL's house and didn't find the cows. Dad got a little worried, so he opened the gate and we drove off into the pasture. We found them all the way at the back of her land. No big deal. We had a bag of range cubes so we went ahead and fed them the bag.
Now here's the funny part of the story... As I went to pull back out of the gate into my MIL's yard I hit a huge pile of wet cow poop, spun out, and slung poop everywhere. I'm surprised my dad didn't get in the truck covered because I covered the gate and he was standing there by the gate. Whoops. Otherwise, all good so far!!
