The bull got onto the back hillside after we worked on the fence. I think he crawled through the barb wire, but I am not sure. I will need to install the sheep woven wire sooner than later to prevent this from happening again. Annmarie let him in with our two yearling heifers so he was very happy. Unfortunately for him, they are not in heat yet. He will have to wait a few weeks for them to cycle again. All the cows are now out by the vehicles. The sheep are now in with the horses and need to be pushed out of the barn lot and back onto the hillside so I can open up the barn area to the back hillside. The fence on the back hillside is nonexistent but the horses won't wander away. Who knows why not but they stay on the hillside unlike the sheep or the cows. We want them to get up there and eat some grass.
I lost a few more baby chickens. I am down to only three chicks, 2 buff and 1 dark Brahma. A 75% loss due to noxious fumes. Annmarie is going to order more chicks today. She also came up with the great idea to wax our new stove cabinet. Furniture used to be stained and wax used as the finish so I will have to call someone who knows more than me about furniture, Doug that is you. I like the idea and am willing to give it a try.
