We got the call from the rancher the cows would come in today. Off Terry and I went to check all the fences one last time, check the fence around the other house, and the electric fence at the horse corral. After a wind sometimes big weeds get into the electric fences and cause them to short out.
It’s been a spell ( a whole year) since these cows have been here; they will be wound up and very excited searching out their new pastures…
Having the cows run through a non-working electric fence would NOT be a good thing.
After lunch, we warmed ourselves up
Splitting some firewood for the house…warmth in splitting the wood; warmth in the fireplace.
Then, as the long dark shadows started showing in the sky we headed in…satisfied everything was good to go for the house, the cows, and the farm.
