…is probably getting cattle!
Say hello to the newest additions to Bakers Acres. They are all Angus – two heifers and three steer.
We spent all day Saturday (including two trips to Rural King) finishing what David had spent hours on already – installing an electric fence around our back pasture in preparation for their arrival. Installing an electric fence is a great way to bond as a family on the weekend.(And if you believe that…)
We actually did have some fun. Working together is nice for David and I and watching the kids take on chores they can succeed at is fulfilling. Dylan became an accomplished chicken catcher by the end of weekend. (Those chickens loved their easily escapable temporary enclosure.)
Makenna did a great job attaching the lines to the posts and keeping everyone hydrated.
Poor little Milo and his sister, Milkshake, got a real shock when they tried to get under the fence once it was active. I never knew cats could fly!
It was a moment of pure joy watching those cattle come out of the trailer and onto our land. FINALLY!!
Here’s hoping that we don’t end up needing a lasso for them anytime soon!
