My parents just went to an auction in Indiana and bought 6 Scottish highland cattle. 3 of which are pregnant! I think they are losing their common sense!
Yeah they look cool...but it doesn't mean that you need to buy them! I thought they were going to buy some juicy black angus. not these! these are pets!

And guess who gets to take care of them when they are gone? or if there is a problem? yup

First time they leave 'em with you, you should hide them when they get back & serve 'em burgers for dinner! :laugh:

That's not my problem, now is it? :tongue0011:

(besides, don't you have a neighbor that really pisses you off & a fence that could mysteriously develop a missing section of something? :laugh: )

Cows seem to find or make a weak spot in the fence anyways. And i don't know if an electric fence will matter. They have all of that fur on, it might be a good insulator. :laugh:

They won't arrive until after the fence is up. Probably be a month before they arrive.

They are actually not that good to eat. They are very lean. tastes like a deer. so, you wouldn't get those tasty steaks, like you would a regular cow.

Well why did they even buy them if they don't want to eat them? :huh:

You are preaching to the choir! preachin to the choir!

I thought they were gonna buy black angus when they went to buy cattle. not pets!
Aparently, my dad has too much money and he doesn't know how to spend it.
I told him four wheelers are cheaper!

I'm a Texas girl. Never been to a Ruth's Chris but I see them around here in NC. Being a Texan, I have very high steak standards and have been nervous about trying the local steakhouses. Should I try this Ruth's Chris?
