|We have a certain amount in common with these|
Well, not really, but it was fairly quiet around here. So of course a big yearling heifer had to run into the forage wagon and get stuck under it.
All hands on deck to get her out. She was well and truly stuck, so the boss picked up the back of the wagon and slid it sideways off her. She is fine, although glad to be upright again.
Then, while everybody was right there handy, he decided to put the bull back out in the heifer pen. You may remember he jumped a six-bar gate Sunday to get to a cow he fancied...
First time he was moved he was pretty quiet for a bull. This time he was on the prod and pretty nasty. The boss let him run himself into the wall a couple of times and that kinda...sorta....calmed him down. Hopefully the very hot electric wire that is now strung around the top of the pen will convince him that he should stay with his harem.
So now, having had all that fun, the guys are taking the roof off the wagon. It was getting pretty bad and we were afraid pieces of metal were going to get in the feed and make the cows sick. Becky and I bowed out of that venture.
