Cattle are really stupid! We cleaned off the bridge across Muddy Creek last week. There was a couple of inches of dirt of probably 80% cow leavings. I was concerned that it might not be good for the wood planks. Now the cattle won't cross on their daily trip back and forth in the hope that the grass is better on the other side. We were on our way out in the new (old) truck, and came upon 8 or 10 of them standing around on the house side of the bridge in obvious confusion. Something seemed wrong to them, In the meantime a couple of bulls decided to butt heads in dangerous proximity to the grill of the new (old) truck. One of them backed into it and I was sure the grill was toast, but all was well & they one at a time went past us & back up the road. Now I see them do the same thing every day. They walk down to the bridge, stand around and moo, then decide to go back up the road. I'll try throwing some straw on the planks & maybe that will help them decide that it's safe. I wouldn't care, except that there is only room there for one truck and one cow to pass, and not enough room for a cattle jam.
Does anybody know where I can get a couple of shmoos to breed? I hear they are more accommodating and might be easier to manage.
