Well, finished most of the cleanup from the mess the cows made. They are still coming around but in fewer numbers. I managed to "block" a few of their paths going around the pond as they started to erode the small berm. I didn't directly cut off the route just built up some logs and brush to wrangle them toward the other path they started. We'll see how well that works. I should probably just get a dog. On a completely unrelated topic...woof it's warm in here. Got a little chilly inside this morning as I last put logs on the fire around midnight. I had to install a 3 foot chimney extension before getting a fire going inside. Started a quick, small fire to take the chill out of the air once I completed the 5 minute job. I sure did that, it's 2 pm and 88 degrees inside. I love having the windows open in the "winter"!
