I'm good, like really good!
It's the weekend.
let's appreciate that for a moment....
I was thinking yesterday, as I enjoyed my Saturday, that when I ran the dairy I totttttally thought weekends were overrated.
Because I worked all the time. Duh.
You were right, they're not.
Boom. I said it.
Hey! I admit when I'm wrong, okay?
Never mid that this is like, the only time.
And you are across the internets.
Through the cables?
This conversation never happened.
I entitled this here post, "Getting it Together" because...well...that's what I have been doing.
With the animals!
I've, got it together...thankyouverymuch.
The cattle on the farm have been partying like it's...well ya know.
For entirely too long.
So I put a stop to it on the first day of the month, and dooped em all into a trap!
Actually, what happened was my
Holy fazzoli, I am the proud mama of some legitimately bat-poo-crazy cattle.
We got them worked, and now all of their numbers and mental status' have been recorded.
The world can continue on course.
I can out virtually unscathed, except for the loss of a few pounds due to heat, however my loveysweetpetuniaofthevalley, hurt his knee.
I still can't wrap my mind around this because, after
The horse I owned for 2 HOURS?
That's another story.
We won't go there. Ever.
Especially by horse.
Once we got the cows/calves worked, we had to move and take inventory of the steers.
It was a situation.
Luckily, I hired a guy to work for me
Catching the steers involved building a corral and baiting them for a week with feed.
We got them caught last week and spent a day trucking them to another field...with grass.
This is important for a grass-fed finishing operation.
They were all out.
Now, they are swimming in the green, leafy-goodness!
Let's just tell the rest in pictures, shall we?
I think so.
After a week of rain we finally had blue skies!
I didn't complain about the rain...it could be the other way around.
And trust me, if there was a drought, you would hear from this gal.
Upon moving the steers I had to take water troughs out to their new digs.
.....wait is that snapping?
Gangs of Greenback.
I don't know about you, but the dude in the middle looks like a bad mamma-jamma.
Did I mention it rained?
Oh, I did.
Well, did I mention that it's JULY, and when it stops raining it gets HE-YEUM-ID?
Well, it does.
I spent more time sweating than I did BREATHING.
But, I did enjoy lunch on the veranda...er....the bed of the truck.
And enjoyed the view:)
I had my first baby..well, not mine but ya know.
I call her "Baby
I needed to get some things done, so I taught myself how to drive this dude...
You get in, turn it on, disengage the brake, and hold on because allofthesudden you're going forward, the bucket's dumping, you're beep-beep-beep-ing while evidently going backwards AND sideways atthesametime.
Then you let go of the joysticks and
I so got it now, don't worry.
I had a few minutes in-between sweating and being a ROCK-STAR on the skid steer, so I took the kids on a nature hike!
There will be a quiz this week.
That was pretty much my week, how was yours?
