Life never gets boring when a couple of city kids set out to farm. Tonight the last two calves were delivered, banded, tagged and then sent out to the pasture to meet the other two calves.
Things didn’t go as expected and the biggest cow ran off the littles ones, one of which broke right through the electric fence and bolted towards the road.
Long story short, running was involved, ATVs retrieved, neighbors assisted, fences turned off, and there may have been a lunge tackle combo move off the ATV to subdue the offending calf.
They are all confined to the barnyard now to get used to each other for a couple of days.
I guess we’ll be running two more lines of electric (cause those little guys are tricky) and then they’ll get their pasture privileges back. If they behave themselves between now and then.
