Grrrr....It's always something. This morning someone's cattle broke down our land's perimeter fence and while we were trying to round them up and move them off our place, they ran down to the barn and spooked the horses in the paddock. Lucy, the 16.2 hand two year old, broke down the gate and gashed herself up and all the others jumped the wreckage, one Paint cutting himself up in the mess. They are all calm now and we're waiting for the vet (60.00 plus a dollar a mile for a ranch call) but the cattle owners have no responsibility whatsoever for the damage. It's open range here. We can't even legally pen them up to wait for the owners. Doe snayone else think open range is a pretty antiquated law? When our sheep got out and got into the neighbor's flowers, we made good on it for them.
