Cows and Llamas

22 Aug

You might recall that I had to move the llamas to the front pasture because Odie was going to attack a calf.  Since I had to let the llamas back into the barn, that meant I had to be a little bit wary about them meeting the cows. I had already taken the step of lowering my piece of panel to try and keep the naughty rump roasts out of the barnyard.

The kids and some smaller goats can still scoot under the panel, but it does mean a lot of the goats don’t get to go through that door either.  Although, they can still use it to scratch between their horns.

Luckily, not long after I let the llamas into the side of the barnyard that they get, Purple 11 came up to lick the salt/mineral block on the other side of the barnyard.

It didn’t take the llamas long to notice.

Several of them went through the barn and stood in the back lean-to and watched through the panel.

You’ve got to love the cows.  They just don’t get too excited about anything.

Finally, she was done licking the salt block and meandered back out to pasture.  The llamas stepped back.  Nobody tried to go under the panel and attack the cow.

I’m pretty comfortable that everyone is going to stay where they belong and we won’t have any problems!  At least I hope that’s what happens.

I hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s items at the top of my side bar.
