When I was walking back in pasture, I was also checking the clover.

That might seem like a silly thing to do, but when we get into September, the clover changes as the weather gets cooler, and that change can lead to those fatal bladder stones in my wethers.


I have to say, there’s not as much clover back there as there used to be.  I think the cows last summer did a good job of keeping it eaten down so it didn’t go to seed.

I’m still not sure I want to risk leaving my boys back there.

Soon I’ll have to decide if they are going to stay on the Back Forty or get moved to the front pasture.


I’m pretty sure I’m of the opinion that it’s better safe than sorry when it comes to my fat boys’ health.
