It was a beautiful summer day on the farm. I was in the city for work and Ed was home with Guinness. Ed headed outside and realized that he could hear bells.
Now the sound of bells is not new- we've been hearing them for a while from across the street. I quite like the sound. But this time they seemed to be very close.
Meanwhile, I am coming back from lunch when I hear a text come across my phone:
Our neighbours cattle and sheep are over on our property. No one appears to be home at there house. Right now they are over buy the path entrance. Any ideas on what to do?
I did a second take and then dialled his number. I confirmed that indeed there were two bovines and sheep on our property and that the owners weren't home. Ed said that they started to head into our woods.
|We come in peace. Take us to your grass|
I was worried that they might get lost or on the road. I told him to call our Julia because she knows everyone. In the meantime I sent the following text to Ed: "take photos for my blog".
And he did so you have him to thank for the visuals.
It turns out the I was right, not only did Julia know the people but she had their number. She called them and they came over to collect their wandering pets ( I found out that today which is just so sweet).
|um, I think I might be lost|
|you guys are so grounded|
I think that that wee sheep with the cattle is so freaking adorable.
|omg, what are they? are they dangerous? I think they are armed!|
Carmen was still a bit jazzed up about the whole thing by the time I got home to ride.
You won't believe what happened today! We were invaded by aliens. They wanted to steal our grass. That god that male servant was here to take care of us. You were no where to be seen!
The fun never ends around here.
That male servant! Lol. I bet it did feel a bit like aliens. Country life right? XDReplyDelete
Thank god for the male servant. Life is so exciting in the country. I wonder what city folk do? They must be so bored. :DDelete
"Take us to your grass" 🤣🤣🤣ReplyDelete
HA!! When Gem was in the hospital after her injury in 2015, her stall looked out over a sheep pasture. She was both mesmerized and terrified by the fluffy white things and spent hours staring at them.ReplyDelete
You have lots of room and could get some sheep.....Delete
Aliens for sure! Our new neighbors have a calf & a lamb. So cute!ReplyDelete
Oh I bet the boys love that!Delete
I know the feeling as my neighbor's cattle come over often. The two bulls came by yesterday, while the cows were "locked" up at home. This made my neighbor come over, so we had a nice visit. I know you now have their phone number. A nice way to get to know them.ReplyDelete
Ha! wondering bovines must be a thing.Delete
Omg haha! Moooove over cows, this is horse country!ReplyDelete
LOL, they probably think we're the invaders. There used to be cattle on our property a long time ago.Delete
That’s very funny. Poor Carmen and Irish being invaded by grass snatching aliens! We hear our neighbors cows and rooster all the time but they’ve yet to visit. We did have a bear spotted in our back pasture by a neighbor last week. I hope none of us meets him/her!ReplyDelete
We're planning to get chickens. I suspect that that will be very exciting.Delete
