Weapon of Mass Destruction


Yep, bolt cutters. The husband and I tore out some old fence and I was in charge of the bolt cutters. Pretty scary!



It was an old cross fence in our top pasture. We are re-organizing the place and there was no need for it any more.


So the wire had to come off. I was in charge of cutting the clips on the t-posts so the husband could roll the wire.


I'm thinkin' I had the better job! Cause I really stood around and took pictures.



But he did give me photography breaks! I took this one to show how hard he was workin' unlike someone else I know!


The heifers came up. They were very intrigued with what we were doing.



They thought the grass along the old fence line was the best thing ever!


And look, the mean 'ol bull, aka Mr. Grumpy Pants, was givin' me the stink eye.


He seems to enjoy coming at me at an increased rate of speed. And when there is nothing in an open pasture between us but an imaginary fence, I don't tend to appreciate it too much.

He does have "that look " about him doesnt he.
I was impressed with the rolled up wire ,usually if I have anything to do with it is a tangled mess with parts of me or my clothing tangled in it!

Ah that mean old bull. He doesn't like cookies?

He does have a certain glint in his eye, but I have to admit that I was a little confused at first!
I was looking for a ermmm... cow "bottom" when you said "stink eye"!

But man... that fence removal? That's hard, back breaking work... and I only did 5 acres worth when I was a sweet young thing. The kids and I did it all, and we were quite proud of ourselves!

my word veri?
nurovest

I was nurovest when Mr Grumpy Pants gave me the stink eye, so I got out of there!

You did have the best job.
I wouldn't trust old Grumpy Pants & sometimes don't even trust the cows, especialy if they have calfs to defend.

kdwhorses said...

Spruce Hill said...

Ah the grass is always greener is it not?

He does look like he is giving you the stink eye. I would keep an eye on him!

Yikes!! Don't think I'd trust that one either...he's got determination in that look and looks like he's thinking a might too hard about something.

missy said...
