And I really appreciate the fact that they designed a trailer that allows for transporting and moving it around. ( Helped us avoid Delivery costs, too! )
This new version of the same model has a nice ' fix ' - compared to the ones made in previous years. The floor plate has now been extended as far up under the headgate as possible.
The older ones had a space between the floor and the headgate. That made for a problem of cows getting their feet trapped - especially the Dexters.
Artist refused to let me lead him over to the other pasture on Friday. And I don't fight with him about it. ( Once again - I pick my battles. )
Bruce - on the other hand - is always more than wanting to go over to the other side. He likes laying under the Three Cedars. ( I think he likes playing with the water spigot on the water tank that we carry over - as much. )
Around Mid-afternoon Artist had concluded that he was wrong. I was not gonna come give him a second chance to ' go to the gate ' this day. And he was pouting.
And then he began whaling out the sorrow.
He lost his ' Baby Moo. '
He pulled his stubborn stunt again - yesterday. And as he stood at the gate - watching us fill the water buckets for Bruce...
He broke loose with a belt of a ' Moo ' that sounded like it came from deep in his gut.
The little boy's voice has changed.
He's growing up too fast for me.
