Lookout, Livestock on the Loose

As you have probably figured out by now from reading my fb posts, livestock on the loose and me tend to wind up at the same place at the same time on a regular bases.

Once when I was pregnant, big and pregnant mind you, I heard a lot of commotion out on the front porch.  I went and looked out the door and there was a boar on the porch. 

He had got out, walked to the house, up onto the porch and fell through a weak board.

He was not happy and Mark was not around.

I knew I was going to have to help him get out and you know how boars can be.

Not pleasant.

I told  Heidi and Lucas to stay in the house and was getting ready to go out when he broke loose and took off.

I don't know who was happier him or me.

One other time I had just got a new dress.

It was red and I had new black shoes to go with it.

We went out to go to church, only to find the hogs were out.

I chased a couple sows down the road in my new dress and in my new heels.

The dress fared okay but the shoes were never the same.

Today Mark and I drove to church separately.

As you would expect I came upon a cow in the middle of the road. I couldn't leave her there she was on the hill.

I saw if I pulled the car just right I could block one side and run her in on the other.

That worked but then I looked over to see she wasn't the only one.

There was a calf out too.

The calf went the wrong way.

I'll stop the story now, I think you can probably figure out the adventure of the rest of the story.

Moral of the story, never stay home alone or travel alone because you are going to need someone to help you chase something.

Loose livestock is everywhere!
