Cow pasture!

I’m sorry I don’t have a picture. My camera is acting up. I hope it’s nothing major. I wanted to let you know the cow pasture is finally done!! What a job and a half! Hubby and I think about when we were younger and these types of jobs got done in one day. It took us 3 days in 30+C weather to finish it. (Note to self: don’t fence in August!) We ran 5 strands of barbed wire in a 150′ x 200′ corral for the calves. We put in 2 fence-gates, and 2 walk-through gates. It looks really secure. Why 5 strands? Because I have other animals in mind to fence there. 😉 So it’s a multi purpose corral.

The calves are doing fine! They are grazing really well on the variety growing there. I’m still bottle feeding them, though. They will soon be weaned but for now it’s a good tool to get them to move. 😉 We haltered them and attached bells. They have grown a lot!
