This was from the day before. Bull winning the battle.

But eventually I won the war. Patience is a virtue. :-)

They seem to like each other pretty well.

There's a party going on.

Image
Parked in one of our pastures

Image
To celebrate and observe the Total Solar Eclipse. Here it was only 98 percent, but traffic wasn't too bad arriving at our party. We wanted to be near some cattle to see how they reacted to night coming in the middle of the day.

I'm sorry you were cloudy, Soap. I replaced a hailed out window after checking a pasture of very relaxed cattle. Then I reassured the dogs here it wouldn't get dark twice in one day again. It was something to see and apparently several folks not from around here thought so also. Is that fogger helpful? We have poured twice for flies and are pleased with how they reacted.
