Sari makes friends with cows.. wait the minutes, never cross in my head that I will be friends with cows. I never seen cow so close in my whole life. I saw from distance when they sell cow and goat for Eid al-adha (Muslim holiday).
But now you can call me Sari the cowgirl , at least these 7 months I see to hundreds cows and hundreds calves.
At beginning I was scared to be close to cows and now I am braver and becoming a cowgirl 😎 :
All went good and made me proud of myself; city gal capable to handle the cows. Eventhough my first experience to chase the cows by myself took 30 minutes, maybe the expert can doi it only not more than 10 minutes but I still happy. I’m pretty good at ” Chasing ” in Jakarta I have been chasing Insurance clients here chasing the cows 😜
Last saturday January 17, I had new experience ” Helping Matt to do bedding “; Put the bedding for calves, it was 17-24 F but the day before the temperature was 37-39 F melted the snow, made a mess yucky melted snow mix with cows poop. The calves looked dirty and my pink boot full of mud, but I help really good it was piece of cake just to watch 3 gates and none of the calves run. Good job Non 😎
And the next day Sunday January 18, trageddy happened, Matt went home for brunch, his jeans and shoes full of mud and smell like cow poops, his face pinkish and said ” Next time when you open the gates with 2 chains so close it 2 chains too ” I can see something went wrong and I asked ” What happened “, ” I get the feeder wagon to feed the calves and hundreds of calves out, you not close the gate properly ” I always chain only one time for cows in the field and all good, but it not applicable for calves, they are curious play with the gate.
OMG 😨😲😣 I feel guilty and almost shed tears. It was a big mess, poop everywhere, broke Christmas lights and Matt chase hundreds naughty calves by himself.
But luckly ( Indonesian always say lucky even get trouble ), first the calves not got out on Saturday night but Sunday morning, second Calves not run to the highway, Third two gates that I only chain one time are all saves, The last one ; luckyly that we still count as newlyweds so Matt not swear at me, but I feel really guilty. Ps : I’m so sorry hubby 💛
It was valuable experience adn unforgetable, little things could turn to big trouble if careless.
I still love to get close with cows, ready for others new experience and can not wait for spring season ” Baby calves born ”
So this is the story of Sari and cows part I
Xoxo, Sari the cowgirl
