Truck ignition had just quit, when she decided to make a run for it. A single hot wire ain't sheet for a scared unweaned heifer, let me tell u!
I watched her jump hotwires like a deer!
Under 6 wire fences.
Thru 5 wire fences.
We went down a corn field and back.
Thru several wheat fields.
Along the road.
Traveled ditches waiting for her pop back out.
The pond down the road is named after her. Never seen a cow swim b4. Like a fish!
Shes the first one we ever owned. Traded some hay for her. Liked that so much, we've spent lots of money buying more! Lmao
Get cows they said.
Itll be fun they said!
It certainly has been! Every step of the way!

Um....at least I can do without that sort of fun......

Bad enough when calves escape yards....young and playfull....they think it is great getting me to chase them around.....I usually wait till they stop the games now.......

Haha. I forgot the rest of the story.
She lived in the "cow house" for a month after that.
She hasn't left this place since...lol
