Cows were excited for a new area.  They ran back and forth once they crossed the old fence line.  Then they jumped the fence and ran around for a while.  I was happy they came back around and walked in rather than having me chase them.  I also made a test hay holder since they are wasting a lot of hay on the ground in their shed.

 
A few days later the cows got out of the electric fence and the barb wire fence that surrounds the 20 acres. Lucky I found them when I drove up just after dusk. They followed me for a bit. Then I needed some food to get them the rest of the way back in. I wonder if a short in the electic fence near the water trough scared them enough to keep them from getting to the water andthus they felt it necessary to jump the fence. The electric fence and barbed wire fence are now fixed.
