brown cow and black cow

We're told that we won't see these cows' heads for at least a month. The Johnson Grass is taller than the cows themselves and is the first thing they went for. They should also graze on the multiflora rose and other weeds eventually. On our way to pasture renovation!

(In case you're just now joining our adventures, these are the neighbors' cows that we agreed to pasture in our field in exchange for bush hogging and some other trade-offs; namely, that we get to watch and enjoy the sight of cows without having to do any of the work.)

The piggies tentatively watched the unloading, and the puppies barked wildly in confusion from the confines of their run while Clyde was locked up in the house. We're hoping that the dogs don't run straight into the electric fence once they spot the cows during their usual rounds tomorrow morning.

Also, both cows are preggos, so we'll get to have baby cows in about a month! Can you tell I'm excited by the number of exclamation points in this post?!


  1. Just like the health benefits domesticated pets can have, I think that just watching animals like horses an cows can lower your blood pressure and calm your mood. I have to be careful when I'm driving by pastures that I don't go off the road because all I want to do is stare!

    1. I do the same thing! Especially when there are baby animals present!

  2. Now THOSE are some lawn-mowers!
