Yesterday, I moved the cows to the front yard while I leaf-swept the back yard, so I could leave the pasture gate open and not have to dismount from the mower to unload my leaves in the big compost pile or maneuver around curious cows. But on about the tenth trip, I realized the cows had knocked the electric fence down and were romping on the front lawn. I finally got everyone back in except for LaFonda, who insisted on grazing the only patch of green grass on the farm, in front of the Granary. I couldn't really blame her, so I tethered her in the yard for a while and she was pretty happy.
However, they have caught three rabbits in the past three days! Maybe there is a bunny population explosion, or perhaps they are having better luck because there is so little vegetation now to hide the rabbits. I have been worrying about rabbits discovering my warm, bountiful high tunnel greenhouse, settling in for the winter and feasting on my crops, so I kind of don't mind that the dogs are having such good hunting success.
