We’re getting slammed with work… cows to move every which way! I’m trying to help when I can, so I was sent to the mountain to work with Brandon. He was going to fix fence. Now that’s a job I don’t mind doing.
We were very intent on looking along the fence line… seeing that the neighbors had already repaired and put up our lay down fence. I turned to grab something from the back of the side by side and HOLY MOLY! the hillside behind us was moving with elk.
Although fixing fence is a tough job, this is definitely one of the biggest perks of the job… seeing cow elk and all their young calves!
It’s a tricky line… I love seeing them, but one of the reasons we have to repair so much fence???? Yup. Elk. They don’t briskly jump over a fence like a deer does…
As they approached the skyline, they stopped and milled about. Could our neighbors that just repaired our joint fence be around on the other side? Someone or something was… as the elk turned and came back our way.
Some appeared over the ridge…
That encouraged the big bunch to follow over the top… and then they stood there.
We finally figured we should go back to work… and just as I dropped off Brandon to hike down a steep hillside, I looked up to see the elk herd finally taking off… straight through our neighbor’s fence. Uh, J., you might send your boys back up to check the fence! Call it “job security”.
