Well, Beryl is rolling over me

Thank you. Yes, it's pretty much over. Kinda of headed northeast. I'm sure plenty of other people had it much worse. Rain wasn't as bad as the wind.
This is going to ruin my weekend plans. :D

How’s the cows?
Effin cows. :D
Earlier in the morning I go to my f-in law's shop to start building a ramp for his 14' trailer. He bought all the steel a few days ago. Also pulled a bolt and hammered out what was left of the output shaft from the stump jumper plate on his JD mx10 brush hog. It sheared of at the c clip.

Anyway, rolled up the shop door, pulled the sheared off piece of the plate, was fixing to start cutting some steel. I turned around and here come the cows. When it's raining they like to hang out underneath the awning that's in front of his roll up door. Well my truck is parked under there also. It's starting to get crowded. I either have to roll the shop door down and block air flow or put the kibosh on the project. Guess what I did.

Gave Mac the chunk of steel and said sayonara. When I left the cows were split between his storage barn and the shop awning.

My neighbor has sheep. We have a few coyotes, foxes and bobcats in the woods around here. He recently got two large donkeys to protect his sheep. I can hear them honking and braying LOUD just after sunset. Benny said he found two or three coyote carcasses each morning after he got them. I had no idea donkeys were violent livestock protectors. They bite, stomp and kick those dogs for a field goal.
@Skipp it's good to know I'm not the only shooter here. Seems to be a subject that is avoided.

I thought I had a coyote problem with my chickens but it turned out to be a possum. Wife and son thought it was cute, so we now feed a wild possum near the chicken zoo. He comes around looking for food every other night. Sits there and watches while Will and I feed him.

Not sure if you have the issues but with cows here, in the late evening just before dark if you sit real still you can kill up to 10-15 coyotes an evening coming after the cows…keeps these old eyes sharp and scratches that itch….
Every once in a while I hear them in the tree line but never had a problem with them attacking the herd.

In-laws had a donkey at one time. They bought it to keep company for the horse they had bought earlier. They sold it after it killed one of there dogs. the dog wasn't messing with anything, just wrong place, wrong time.

I don't have a problem shooting coyotes, hogs, armadillos, or any animal that encroaches on the garden. What usually happens is that by the time I run into the house grab a rifle and come back, they are gone.
