Excoooose me, Jon, your gate is open
Before going to bed at night, I usually go down to the barn to check that everything is set for the night. Last night Yukon and I stepped out into the below zero night air around 10 PM. As we walked to the barn, Yukon let out a few barks but I told him to be quiet, that nothing was wrong. I heard a cow moo as I opened the barn door, and I thought, where did that come from?
