Andrew’s been heading out after supper and working until approximately 9:30 pm, moving fence lines, making gates and preparing the next days grazing for the herd.

Grandpa, the two little ones, and I went to feed corn before we opened up the next grazing area on the ditch this morning.
Grazing down the ditch. This drought is going to make the bible verse John 10:27 more real to me. Already the cattle are becoming more comfortable with me being very close and happily walking through a gate that I open. Amazing how spending a lot of time around God’s critters (and people) allows you to get to know them well.
Ignatius, Mary and I moved the herd on Tuesday out of the tree fence, we found out that if we leave them on the trees too long, they prefer to eat the tender needles and sprouts instead of the old grass and old hay.
Grandpa made a beef tongue for Daddy, but this little man ate two slices before Dad’s lunch time. He thinks it’s delicious! Once I get past the idea that it’s a beef tongue, I have to admit, it is very tasty. There’s a reason why the buffalo herds were hunted for just their tongues.
