Starting the Great Spring Move

5 Apr

Last night, I set the wheels in motion for moving all the animals around for spring.  I went out to the Back Forty to my mustard and ketchup gates.

I opened the shiny ketchup gate and called to my bovine babes.

They began their favorite sport of taunting the human.  They came just to the fence line, but they wouldn’t come in.  That’s okay.  I let them stay in my soon-to-be cornfield for the night.

In the morning, it was time to get serious.

If you want to move a cow, there’s a pretty sure way to get them to go wherever you want…

They love it. (Macro)

I got them to come through, and I have them shut on the Back Forty now.

It was perfect weather for the two girls to show Norma Jean’s baby bull his new home.

Of course, Maxine had to come holler and see if MJ was going to be joining them out there.

She was very disappointed he wouldn’t be joining them, but it’s for his own good.

Tomorrow, I’ll show you how happy the goats were to be in the Back Forty.
