After 4 inches of rain on Monday and another 40 hundreths on Tues we had some serious flooding at our pasture. Because of all the debree that was carried in the rushing water, our electric fencer was not working. So husband and I headed on foot around the perimeter of the 65 acre pasture. Let's just say that walking in knee boots through some really muddy, and flooded grass areas in the heat of the day was not very easy. Between the mosquitos and the water it was quite an adventure. We did accomplish our mission, and removed all the debree off the the electric fence wire. It took us all morning. Our reward...a fencer that works and getting to see 2 large Great Horned Owls fly out of the barn on the farm place when we arrived. They were awesome.


  1. You are such a good farm wife!! Love the picture of the cows in the pasture, makes me feel right at home.

  2. My husband and I were just talking about how the mosquitoes arrived after our flooding up here this spring, and they still swarm up from bushes--they won't be gone til frost!! Remember last winter??? The snow??? Oh gosh, I hope we don't have it that bad again!
