Had to go about 2 hours away from the farm today to the dentist. While I was gone one of my heifers broke an eybolt off one of the gates and 23 escaped onto a rarely traveled paved road. Neighbor called and said some black heifers had been spotted about 4 miles from the pasture where I keep mine. Anyway called a friend who rode over to take a look while I was on the way back from the doctor. Turns out they were mine and some idiot fellow was chasing them in his truck attempting to help them " find the hole they got out of". This guy had been driving them up and down the road for an hour or so.
I luckily had another place rented close by and my friend was able to get them to go in a gate there. Problem now is they are mixed up with about 50 cows. What a pain.

I'm convinced there is a 70 Mile Rule that cows HAVE to abide by. It seems whenever you are at least 70 miles away they MUST break out of the pasture and/or tear the water line from the trough. Glad you at least got them fenced and hope your 'helper' didn't make them too wild.
