    Our yard is about an acre. There are 5 gates. All the gates have double latches on them because cows have a bad habit of rubbing against gate latches until they accidently open them. I leave the garden gate open about 6" so the chickens can come and go, but all the other gates are double latched at all times.
    We just found a pile of cow manure smack dab in the middle of the backyard.
    So either cows are now flying or........... [​IMG]

    Ours can jump remarkably well, they often end up in the wrong pasture. I have a yearling bull that is migratory, I think if we left him to his own devices he'd eventually be on someone else's property.
