Rough Horse

We awoke to an escaped cow. The horse is a little rough sometimes on these little guys when he plays, and they almost always find a way out of their pen when he pressures them. For a little while, the unnamed cow will hang out mowing the back yard.

Caught Him

Lief the llama jumped a second fence to avoid the sound of the newest cow. He ran all the way out of town and was on the outskirts of the next town before Ray caught up with him. On the bright side, Lief hs proven to be a very good walking llama. He sticks to the roads and follows a lead rope without worrying about finding his own way. Ursula, the previous walking llama, was very headstrong when it came to walking.

Today Ray tried out the neighbor’s gas powered weed eater. It has an extendable reach and an attachement that will allow branch cutting. The engine is 4stroke, so it’s better for the environment. But it’s still gas powered.

The fences and walkways are now clear of grass and bramble.

Lief Doesn’t Like Him

The llama does not like the new cow. He’s jumped the fence and is hanging out at the back of the property.

Our cow that will not be named arrived. There is always the trouble of attachment.

Leif

Welcome, Leif: Protector of the bovine, bane of the canine, and halter friendly llama. Leif has been here for a couple of weeks and is doing his job really well. He doesn’t go anywhere without his cow, and keeps the neighbors’ dog away. He brought some critters on his back, but a little Ivermectin and we’re hoping the problem will clear up quickly.
