But hay and honking? That's a combination they can get behind. Literally.
With a hard freeze coming overnight on Monday, it was time to move our 25 bred heifers out of the Palmer Pasture and back home, where they will dine on their wintertime gourmet fare - hay and silage.
Randy and I followed in the pickup. Our job was to stay out of sight until the heifers made their way through the pasture fence and into the corral. Cattle are curious creatures, so our goal was "Out of sight. Out of mind." I distracted myself by taking photos. Big surprise.

The heifers took a short trailer ride to the corrals, where they are awaiting their first appointment with the OB/GYN (aka the veterinarian) today.
