Two's a herd

Little cow has learned how to jump fences or squeeze between the wires. The little pig started it by squeezing under so it could follow me and the kids around hoping for handouts. Then Little cow had to be with her friend and started getting out too. Mama cow is then very disturbed and moos frantically because she is alone. The problem is that I can't find a hole in the fence or a low spot. I have repaired and strengthened and tightened almost every part. We are going to change pastures today and see if that helps.

About the move, I have decided I must have been insane@#*&^! We are committed now on both ends. My job knows I am leaving and I have given notice. The new job knows we are coming and I have signed a stack of papers committing to it, but I just can't see how it is going to happen. We have a list a mile long of stuff to do around the house while the dishes pile up and we are behind on basic household chores.

I think part of me wants my life to be hard and difficult.

Cows in general sound like they would make my life harder than I want it to be, so I think you're right about your conclusion.

The time will pass and one way or another you'll get what you need to done. Good luck with everything!

The grass is greener on the other side of the fence. That is our biggest struggle right now. Hopefully now that they are on the green grass they will be content. A 1000 lb cow can push over any of my fences I am afraid.

It is probably time to loose the cows.

No it is time to slaughter them and have a big barbecue.
