Yesterday afternoon two of my neighbours' replacement dairy heifers had gotten out onto the road. Sometimes I think people are downright dumb. Cars and trucks were roaring past them at high speed. One guy almost smacked into them. Finally another guy stopped his vehicle to give me a hand to get the two calves off the road. We lost one which ended up at way up the road at another farm and I got the unpleasant company of a bawling heifer keeping me awake for the rest of the night mutter. The kids and I shot up to Terry's milking shed late yesterday afterday and told Peter the Farm Manager. Peter showed up this morning with Craig to get the heifer. After a lot of running around and my cows ending up yet again in the garden, the nuisance was safe and sound back in her paddock. The other one was brought back an hour later. One thing I do have around here and that's great neighbours. So much for my morning. Spend chasing cows. No wonder I called my home the Mad Bush Farm because most of the time things here are crazy and fun. Photo above is the heifer in my garden. What's left of my garden that is.
