Farm Girl Note: A Moon-lit Cow Chase

As you all probably know our farm manager (& brother) Josh is engaged to be married in November. Well, he was able to go visit his fiancé a few days ago and just a few hours after he left we got a call that some cows were out. Several of us got in the van and drove three-quarters of a mile away to where the cow’s pasture is. In the glare of the headlights, we spotted our bull and seven other cows next to the road munching on the neighboring field. We hopped out and began shooing them up the road and back to our field; it was so dark we could hardly see the dark outline of the cows against the horizon. We split up and I soon was alone chasing the bull and two cows up the hill and then into the gate of our pasture which should be an easy task. 😊 as we walked up the road the bull began this awful low angry bellow as I waved and shooed at him, I soon realized that cows in our other herd across the road were in heat and our bull was upset that he could not get to them. He ran up to the fence around the buildings with the cows following him. Finally, after chasing them around with our little phone lights we were able to get them into our field and secure. We wearily walked home under a beautiful canopy of stars and wondered why the cows always get out when Josh is gone…? It’s still a question we’re asking and were worried about the week-long honeymoon that is coming up and guessing what kind of adventures we’re bound to have when he’s not here to manage things 🙂 It makes you appreciate all a person does when they’re not around. Very thankful for family, for life, and for our gracious God! Happy Thanksgiving time!
