The cattle report today: the two big bulls have found each other after staying out of each other's way for weeks. Remember that our whole community is 1500 acres for roaming. I was not up yet, but Mark reports the two decided to fight on the road down at the end of our hill. Not much damage done - they don't have horns, but all morning they have been quite loud in their vocal bellowing. Hmmm....the cattle are here for at least another 6 weeks, could be interesting. I'm not bothered by them at all from inside the safety of our fence. HA!
Another creature appeared on our deck this morning. A long tailed weasel. Isn't he cute! Okay, weasels look cute but are NOT. Ferocious hunters and needing to eat 40% of their body weight everyday. They eat chipmunks, gophers, etc. This is their fall color as they turn totally white in the winter.
We have been busy cutting and hauling up firewood from our woods. Dirty and exhausting work! Forests are naturally very messy if you didn't know. No idea how much firewood we'll use, especially since we'll head back to Florida the end of Oct. and then back for Xmas.
