WE HAVE COWS!
If you come to our place during the day you will think that this is just a rumor but it is actually true! I have cows! They just hide in the woods, so far.
I have been wanting cows since we moved here. I am glad I started with goats. They are much more social from what I have seen so far. My neighbor met me at the cattle auction on Monday and helped me with the bidding. I got three. One heifer, one bull and one steer. I went there for 4 steers but I was quickly convinced that the heifers might be cheaper and that the bulls can be “taken care of”. After the sale my neighbor took them home and left them on the trailer and then took them to the vet the next morning. The bull was “taken care of” and they all got wormed and vaccinated. They were unloaded into the pasture around 11am and quickly disappeared into the woods. I went out at dusk to try to play with them and they were very scared of me. The next afternoon I went out to drive them to the water troughs because they had had nothing to drink yet. I was just a crazy lady walking through the woods to them but they finally went out into the pasture and we were able to “push” them to water. They took a few sips and licked on the mineral block and then promptly went back into the woods, never to be seen again. UGH! I have cows! I want to play!
Y’all come back now!
