 Busy morning with tank and pipe trucks along with pickup trucks today. When we first saw one cow in the evening I went out and picked up the cone and put the cone on the generator trailer. After getting the cone I looked down the road see a large group of cattle watching me retrieve the cone. After coming back inside Buster the cattle continued coming towards Buster even coming to Buster’s side of the road. A little later there was a flatbed truck coming in the gate delivering a large valve assembly. I informed the driver there was cattle on the road on the other side of our motorhome to be aware of them driving to the work site. After closing the gate and coming inside Buster the truck had passed and the cattle were gathering together, to us it looked like they were having a meeting to decide weather or not to continue coming up the road. Some had gone into the brush on the other side of the road while the rest had stayed there on the side of the road. Slowly e few were walking and eating. Then stopping and looking. Finally one bull came walking out of the pack and walked up the road past Buster. With that they all stopped eating, kind of single file they all walked past Buster, shows over for tonight.
