We connected the lower pen with the upper pen with a couple of corral panels so now Maybelle can move from the upper pen to the barn with no issue. She immediately started running from lower to upper and jumping around...it was really fun to see.
This is Maybelle behind Jesse's headstone (he wont mind I am sure) and she now has an oak grove to play in, she is close to the other calfs and she has lots of room to run and play.
She is such a fine looking young lady.
We are in the process of weaning her but Judy is a softy and keeps giving her the bottle.
We have taken to just sitting on the porch of the pole barn and just enjoying our little homestead. We can see the orchard, the truck garden and of course as you can see...Maybelle in her new pen.
We dont have much, dont need much but what we do have is very peaceful and we like it.
Rose the Farm Dog and Maybelle are playmates and Rose keeps good watch on her.
Judy has a good view of her calf from her living room too.
And while we were doing all the fencing we found this patch of wild asparagas....
And this patch of wild asparagas next to the barn (yes its edible)...
And this Rhubarb patch we never knew about before.
We added another sorting corral further in the pasture so we can treat the cows and segregate them if needed.
We found these panels on sale and got a further military discount...its never expected and I dont look different at businesses that dont give military discounts but when they are available its very much appreciated. We live in a very patriotic and pro military part of the country...we like that.
We anchored the panels with T-Posts wired to the corral panels and we are pretty happy with how it came out.
There was zero fencing here when we moved in a year ago......
