Today I spent much of the morning watching new fencing going up. Since I was there to keep an eye on them, I was able to take the dogs with me.
There was all sorts of fun stuff to explore, like puddles that were revealed when the future Apache pasture was mown very short.
All the dogs frolicked in it, but one in particular was in ecstasy. Harvey was absolutely hilarious. He’d plop himself in a puddle, then jump up and stick his head in the water, shaking vigorously.
He must have done this ten minutes, running from puddle to puddle. That’s a lot of play for our most sedentary fellow. Carlton and Gracie joined in and got almost as muddy as Harvey, but he looked like a chocolate covered dog at one point.
I laughed so hard my cheeks hurt.
Meanwhile, the cattle were having their own fun. Haggard the young bull has joined the happy mini-herd, and he’s fit right in. He and the black cow have been “having fun” but not really figuring it out. They’ve certainly been trying. I’ll spare you images of cattle sex, however.
To be honest, they were as interested in the fencing operation as the dogs were. They had to go up and sniff all the new material.
The fancy white heifers currently behind us were quite jealous and wanted to join in the fun. They played with the dogs and the black cows as much as they could, and mooed at Haggard.
All in all, everyone had a good time. I did, too! I sure missed dog and cattle fun when I was gone!
I even got to have some quiet time with Vlassic today, and it was hreat, except he deposited mud on all my clothes.
Next, I’ll share fascinating fence facts.
