Saying Goodbye

To my fence jumping, half deer, half cow...cow.
I've loaded her up in the old stock trailer and hauled her
to the sale barn.

I cannot stand the thought of her wandering onto a major road, being hit and hurting someone.
Just a part of raising animals...not all things work out as you would like.

I'm pretty sure I will not miss my late night escapades with her. :)

She looks absolutely... delicious.

Sometimes they are more trouble than they're worth. Sleep well, hun!

Thanks Mark,
You know...I do feel a bit more relaxed this evening knowing I do not have to worry about her. :)

If she would be too tough to eat, what would someone buy her for, breeding?How much does a cow go for?

cowgirl said...

Nate,
She would make good burger for fast food chains. lol just kidding. :)
She was purchased by a rancher since she is bred. I did warn him about why I was selling her. He didn't seem to mind. :)

Wow what timing. I just did that with a bull calf on Monday. I don't know who was annoying more me or the Sheriff. As they say, sell one off and another in the next year seasons birth will take their place. Only I hope the one I select will be just a little more inclined to stay on the right side of the fence.

Sorry you had to sell your fence jumper too Dave! :)
