I got a late start on my day today
sleeping in till an almost unheard of
I was enjoying my first cup of coffee and reading my book
trying to wake up when
I notice a few vehicles up on the main road slowing down and
one or two honking their horns.
I'm guessing it is our neighbors dumb dog Emma
up on the road again.
Why she hasn't been hit yet is beyond me,
because she will lay right on the center line.
Vehicles will honk at her and some folks
even stop to pick her up and deliver her to our house
thinking she is ours.
Anyhow, I'm running behind now so I head out to the barn to
feed the animals before I have to get ready for work.
As I climb the ladder into the barn I hear a cow moo,
turning around what do I see?
Lily and baby Molly up on the freaking road!!
I race back to the house and wake Colton up so he can help me
get them back in before they get hit by a car, escape into the woods or
trample through planted fields.
I get a bucket of corn to lure them with. Lily is not interested in
anything but the fresh sweet grass, so I get
up behind her and Molly and start trying to shoo them in the right direction.
It took about 40minutes and a few wrong directions,
but we finally got them back in their pen.
The fence was not down anywhere, but there was a stretched out area that
must have been their escape route.
Funny Cal and I were just ragging on a friend the other day that
can't keep his cows in. That's Murphy's law for you I guess.
