The husband got a call yesterday that we had a couple cows from our lease place out in the neighbor's field. So this morning we headed over to check it out. We called up the cattle and found that two cows and one calf were missing.
We drove the fence line and found the fugitives. Luckily, there was an old wire gap we could open to let them back on our pasture. They were happy to be back. The mommas went looking for their calves.
The husband and I were happy to see the calf was with them. He didn't belong to either one of them so we figured he was dead somewhere in the creek. But it turned out good.
So then we had to find where they had gotten out. Just the husband's luck, it was in a washed out MUDDY area. They were able to go under the fence so he had to put some more wire across the bottom and posts to hold it.
And we didn't think to bring our mud boots. So I sat in the grass while the husband got muddy.
This was the best we could do with what we had available. And with all the mud.
After it dries out, we'll go back and check to see if we can fix it better. Hopefully, it will contain our escapees for now.
