Pierce the Bull Arrives
Our neighbors on Palomino Lane, Jane and Bill, rented a bull and he arrived this week. He banged around a lot in the trailer, not happy with his situation. So John helped Jane unload him into a corral. Pierce lunged out of the trailer and immediately headed for the hay. Smart bull. However, the vet had to check him out for fertility and STDs so he can't be in with the ladies yet. There are twenty of them. Rosebud, a very sweet cow, came to check out the new arrival. Jane and Bill's cows calve in the fall, so now is the time for Pierce to be on the job for next year's calves.
