A cow!

Friday, August 1, 2008

Last weekend I was sitting on the sofa at my dad's house and my stepmom flung the door open and yelled to my sister, "Megan, there's a cow in the backyard and we need your help herding it into the fence."
Needless to say, it's not everyday that a cow ends up in our backyard, so I immediately grabbed my camera and stood out on the patio. I didn't want to get too close to the cow.

The summer before I went to college, my dad moved out to the country and built a house and barn for my stepmom's horses. Trish, my stepmom, recently got a new horse (the one in the photo) who apparently doesn't like cows in her yard. Ya-ya (the horse) was bucking like crazy, so Trish hurried to get Ya-ya in the barn. The plan was to switch out the horses: put Ya-ya in the barn, and bring Cleo outside (she likes cows). Then my dad, Trish, and my sister were going to stand around the gate to the pasture and herd the cow inside the gate.
Here is the little cow in our backyard. We wanted it on the other side of this fence.
But the cow was more interested in standing next to its mom. The cow lives next door and somehow escaped and ended up in our yard. Eventually, we got the cow in the pasture and then the cow's owner picked it up and took the cow home.
