Early before the sun peeped over these beautiful mountains to me East I left the house to check the cows as usual. I got to the gate and while I was opening it I stood and took a look across the pasture to see where to go first. I seen 3 cows in the brush pasture so I decided to go there first. I took a look around close to the gate and the closest cows to the gate were cleaning up on the feed yard so I left the gate open. All 3 of the cows had had their calf. All 3 were cleaned and had sucked. One little blk. wht. face had frost on him but he was perky so no harm was done.
As I got close to the gate I seen that the 4 cows that were grazing by the gate had gone out and across the road to pasture around the house. So I shut the pasture gate and the driveway gate and took the cows to the corral and put them in the pasture I was planning to move them to on Sunday. (Today)
Boy that was easy so when I went out to check at noon I did it again. No luck that time. BUT I thought the day is young—–maybe they will come out later. Sure enough they did. Some of the cows with calves came with their calf and some came with out their calf. But I thought ease dose it. I got my dogs on the ATV with me and went to the back of the cows. OH MAN when those cows seen those dogs they headed North to the pasture where their calves were and the cows that had their calves with them did the same.
Man how good can this be!!! So I got Brian, a fellow I have here doing some preperation work for moving the cows on Sunday. I told him to mount up on the other ATV and lets put them in the corral and cut the bulls off. We had a little trouble getting them away from the hay stack but other than that. WE GOT ‘ DONE !!!!
I was so happy. Something that I had planned to use 5 people for done. AMAZING.
