The cows are back out front near the cars and are doing well. If you go out with an apple they all will come over and take it from your hands. You can even touch noses and the occasional head. They are not as tame as the horses but after this winter they should be a lot more easy to handle. The three heifers are pregnant again! They are starting to put on baby weight and size. I am looking forward to fresh beef next year.
I had a date for slaughter lined up for the sheep but it was when I was away. Annmarie and Zeke tried to sort the sheep into the old baby area and the sheep rammed the external door off its track and got away. Annmarie says Zeke was not helping, more like causing problems. He has been a pill so the last two weeks we have been practicing tight control on all dog behavior. He is much better and waits and listens better. I had to have some help to reinstall the door it was a two person and a lever manuever. I rescheduled the slaughter day for later this month. I will help sort the sheep even if it means I need to feed and water the for a couple of days in the pen. They are scheduled for two weeks from today.
