Is The Grass Really Greener On The Other Side?
So much for relaxing and going to bed early. We're awake now. The second time the sheriff's department called to say do you have a black bull on Hwy 97? First time it was one of the young bulls, to night it was the big black bull who was born on this place and never been off the place. Both times by the time we drove out the renter had them back in or the sheriff's car had scared them with driving up and down the bar ditch sounding their siren. They will put them in any property to get them off the highway. It was light enough that we spotted some bad fencing so John honked the horn to get all the cows to follow the truck away from that area and shut the gates so they can't go back there until John and his highschool compadre does the fence mending. Guess they think the grass is greener on the other side. After the fence is mended and if any of them keep getting out John will sell the guilty one at auction. He won't put up with it. It's too dangerous for people driving and dangerous for the bull or cow that is getting out. Seems I read in the paper if they give you a call about a cow out for the third time there is a stiff fine. If I'm correct about that John wouldn't like that either.
