Last Wednesday, we had some drenching rains. We only got about one inch here at the house, but our lease place, 30 minutes away, got over 11 inches! Roads were flooded and water was every where. The husband and I headed out this weekend to make sure all the cattle were still there and the fence was standing.
Over a year ago, the husband rebuilt part of the fence along the creek. The old fence was pretty much non-existent. He moved it out about 50 ft, hoping it would be far enough away from the creek to do okay. Well, it was still standing, just leaning a bit.
All the brush from the creek caught here. There were some massive tree stumps. I was pretty proud of the hubby's fence for withstanding it. The grass was laid over from the water. You could tell there was a lot of water rushing thru there.
There was even someone's old shoe stuck in the fence.
We tried pushing off most of it. Got the big stuff off the wire. It was just like new. We also checked the cattle. Wanted to get a head count, make sure everything was there.
They came a runnin'! Even the newest babies.
This is Itty Bitty's brand new sister.
She's out of a different bull. She still looks pretty petite though. Have to see if she grows or not. Here a few of the other new babies.
The husband LOVES the lil brahma. She has a little hump and those big ears!
So everyone was accounted for and the fence was standing. It was a good day!
