Darling Husband ended up working late and while we finished putting up the fencing as the sun was setting.
DH wanted to fix some things and we put off moving the cattle until tomorrow, again.
Then when dh gets home he tells me he has about 15 minutes worth of work before we make the big move. An hour later he tells me 10 more minutes, half an hour he says about 10 more minutes so we go out and put the halter on Onyx and see how Ruby will do with a rope halter on her.
She was not happy but took to it better than I thought she would. Onyx’s leg/hip were healing nicely but she last weekend she went into heat again and with the cows jumping on her and her trying to mount the other cows she hurt herself again. So her limp is back and she moves slowly.
Finally we move the cattle. Dh and Stick boy stop them from turning down the driveway, the girls block them from turning were the driveway turns. Teen Boy walks Onyx and I try to lead Ruby. Once the cattle realized they were out of the pasture the Dexters took off running. I had no hope of holding Ruby. When they got into the new pasture they ran around kicking up their heels, they were in heaven!
When we dredged the pond we dumped the muck in the pasture that
was not being used at the time.
My son uses it as an RC car and mountain bike track.
He is hopeful the cattle will clean his tracks.
