Last week our hay was finally cut after all of the wet weather we had this spring, but once it was down the forecast was starting to look wet again later in the week. The hay guy raked it a few times and got it baled. Luckily it stayed nice until it was all in the barn, and the next morning we woke up to rain.
What happens when our bull tries to eat the grass on the other side of a temporary hot wire fence? He somehow manages to get the fiberglass pole with a small wire clip stuck in his hair... runs through the pasture like a crazy bull... cowards by his girls until hubby takes it off!
We were out moving irrigation and watched the whole thing... it was pretty funny. More importantly, maybe he learned his lesson and won't be sticking his head through the fence anymore!
A few days ago I was worried that our new calf was only nursing on one side of her mama's udder. So we put Mama cow in the squeeze shoot and milked her out on the other side to make sure her teats were small enough for her calf to suckle. She didn't mind at all and I got a half gallon of fresh milk.
I made some fresh yogurt, thanks to a recipe from The Prairie Homestead. Super simple to do, I made it in the evening, used my oven's proofing setting overnight, and woke up to homemade yogurt. Yum!
