The Master's Call

You know how they say that sheep follow their shepherd's voice? Cows are smart like that too.
Sunday I helped Dad separate out the calves that needed to be weaned from the cows.

I stood at the barnlot gate calling "sook sook" and the cows just looked at me and stood still. Dad did the same call and was answered by a chorus of moos, and our cows meandering toward the barn.

That was the first time we brought all the cows and calves into the barnlot. Then a calf escaped back into the field and the cows got stubborn. Dad had to entice them with a round bale and a promise of greener pastures. See below for enticement photos...
