I am now officially caught up with the majority of the population..I have a "smart" phone.
And it does stuff like that picture above.
I know I said I wouldn't get one because it would never survive me but I had like $200 in instant rebates..
..and I was feelin..odd..
..and it was Monday.
Monday was a rough day.
I almost complained.
I almost cried.
I almost sweated more than I drank..almost.
The heat index was over 100 on Monday and the humidity was so thick I felt like I was working in a sauna.
And I had 4.Calves.Born.
Chuck called me at 8am and said "The news says to try not to be outside if you don't have to".
And I said "BAAAAAhahahahahahahaha &%### **&^%!!!. Really".
I had 4.Calves.Born.
Don't get me wrong I LOVE having calves because new babies=fresh cows=more milk=rockstar status.
That's how it breaks down.
HOWEVER, 4 bull calves makes me start thinkin I need to change things up a bit..
Maybe breed with the other hand?
Stand on one foot?
Sing "It's a Small World After All" while marching in place?
Getting a newfangled phone wasn't the ticket because I have had 8 calves born since Monday.
7. S-E-V-E-N. Were bulls.
The one I pulled yesterday was a GIANT!
I felt sorry for 8341 after it was all said and done.
I didn't think it was ever gonna all come out..all 85 lbs of HIM.
I'm considering adopting.
He is still a bit googly-eyed this morning so I will wait and take a pic, however I do have a picture of the SINGLE little lady I had yesterday...
That's just a sample of my brilliant photography skills..enhanced only by the little app-thing that I am learning about.
Oh hey! Fun fact: Once a cow has a calf (only then is she considered a cow) she is called "fresh" and can start her lactation.
That Jersey above milked 52 lbs this morning!
To put it in perspective that's 6 gallons!
I have had plenty of Holsteins milk that well but really never a Jersey.
It made me proud:).
I should make her a banner..or sash!!
Oh maybe I have an app for that...
