Laundry and Livestock

Monday, March 2nd, 2015 at 8:40 am by Richard

I’m a little bit behind on posting stuff on the blog! Valentine’s Day, the day after we got back from our 2 week California trip, was beautiful (in fact, the last beautiful day for a long time)! I needed that time to unpack, wash laundry and get caught up a little bit. Richard put the cattle into a little spot in our yard near the clothesline to graze, and we noticed how they weren’t afraid of the whipping clothes. So, Richard decided to try a little “placing” and see how it went.


Our three loads of laundry whipping in the wind didn’t worry the cattle at all.


Richard drove them right up to the whipping laundry and left them there. They stayed there grazing (calves even laid down). Come to a school to see the video!
