There was a huge black cow in our backyard last night. Oh, no, I don't mean the ones in the fence on the farm behind us. I mean a cow. In.Our.Back.Yard.
And we loved every minute of it. The dogs were not too excited about it. Every night we go out and the cows are lying up against the fence right beside the dog lot. At least 25-30 of them. I think they like our dogs, so they sleep next to them. So this cow, who got out somewhere, follows the herd along the fence line wherever they go, which means the stray comes to sleep in our backyard. So far he hasn't damaged anything. He has kept the grass down, though, which means less mowing for me. I just hope he doesn't leave any "surprises" for us in the yard!
