    Our yard cows don't seem to be doing their jobs. The grass is getting way out of control. So much so, that the cats get lost in it.

    Heh, heh, heh :D How cute!

    You are right, they aren't doing their job. Or maybe they are producing too much fertilizer and making the grass grow faster than they can eat it.
    ;)

    The cats look like they are prowling in a jungle.

    Blimey if the grass gets much taller you'll have to send a scout out to find the cows never mind the cats. :rolleyes: I think it's about time you got that lawnmower out Tom. :p

    You are probably right Eileen, but I vowed not to have a lawn that needed cutting here at the lake. However, I may eat my words, as I tend to agree it will look much better cut. as an after thought, the grass is nearly at tall as the snow got deep last winter. Three and 1/2 feet. Sorry I don't know how to convert that to meters.

    That's about one meter, Tom. I'd say 1,10. :D My horses would love that grass.

    Well, there's your answer, Tom -- give your horses a day or two in the yard!

    There you go Toni, I like the way you think. Agricultural Research project, ----sounds right, do you think I could get some government money to fund this project?? It's green, research sounds good, Agricultural adds some credibility, and project, well the government can't resist dumping money on a good project, wy, a grant is almost assured. And most of all I don't have to cut it, and keep on cutting it. Good idea.
