Over the weekend, I got very little sewing done. Mostly, work. UGH! I did however have an unplanned “date” with the boys…so to speak.
These “boys” (actually steers) live here on the farm in a BIG shed. Typically they stay in their pen day in and day out…except for weekly pen cleaning and a few trips through the cattle shoot for vaccinations, they are pretty much restricted to their pen.
Well Saturday night, they escaped. We aren’t sure when….we know how (a faulty gate)…but they were discovered Sunday morning bright and early, roaming around our yard. Hubby frantically called the house phone, waking us all and in a matter of minutes we were out trying to get them corralled again. 100 big boys, a mile or so of running, and a half hour later, all were back in their pen. It wasn’t what I had in mind for a date….but at least it ended well.
They did roam up right next to the house….yes in the newly seeded lawn. Our farm dog, Pepper, never barked…at least not that we heard. The cattle got to the back of the house and turned on the newly installed motion light. It just makes me wonder what all is happening outside while I am sleeping.
Hopefully my next date with a “boy”, won’t be with this boy…
and will instead be with my hubby. That will be awhile away, it’s harvest season here on the farm and trust me, no dates are happening while there are corn and beans that needs harvesting. oh, farming………..
