Well, looked out my bedroom window this morning and noticed the garden was a bit damaged. I figured last nights storm was to blame. Got out of bed, and was told to look closer. I found hoof prints! Turns out last night at 4am the neighbors cows got loose. Caused a mess in the garden, my sunflowers took a toll and most were out. Corn was damaged but plenty left and salvageable. Got his one corn field pretty good too. Left plenty of patties. Now for the 1/2 inch rain to dry and we can clean up.
Not Again. Steak, Anyone?

Did you get an apology?

That car looks a little small to be taking out cows

Wow, that's a bummer. I hope the garden recoveres, the neighbor apologizes and the car just needs a wash and wax (no damage I hope)
I bet the cow was just aiming for the liscence plate...any other damage was accidental.

Thanks guys. He said he'll replace some of the corn that he can, but he lost a good bit of his own too. He used to have cows get out too, but never near this level. I was surprised that the dog didn't bark at all. The cows were right next to the doghouse where he was sleeping! I think let is dry out, decompose and I'll roll the lawn out some.

That best not happen at my house!! Iowa law requires that neighbors share the cost of boundary fence. The ink is barely dry on a $500 check, signed by my wife.

My yard looked remarkably like the moon after a herd of cattle marched through it. Of course, they all scattered when I stepped out on the porch after helping two shells out of a shotgun towards the birds.
