I typed all this out and then lost it :( So Try try again.
This week was a week full of bovine and bovine mishaps..... Starting Monday morning and ending Friday! And we still have a trip to the vet to make tomorrow morning for some preg checks, vaccinations, and lutalizing (that's giving dope to some young heifers to make sure if they are bred the flush the baby, these particular heifers are too young and small to be bred)
These two girls started my Monday off with a ton of work! They were on the wrong side of the fence with a big black neighbor bull. What in the world are you heifers thinking! They are way too young and small to be bred but they are old enough to be cycling.... So, after finding them on the wrong side of the fence Mr. H and I decided to do some bovine shuffling. . . .
Now, I had to move all the bovine that was at the house to the north lease.... That's why I was hooking up the trailer. I got them pinned up and got the trailer backed to the chute and tried running them in the trailer, except they didn't want to go. :( We do not have the best set up at home for loading. So after a bit I decided to leave that job for Mr. H when he got home. I went a head and went out to the home place lease and got everyone situated there and pulled into the north lease to wait on Mr. H. It was a beautiful spring day and my view was amazing! I'm pretty sure the Lord made this view just for me to enjoy after a trying day! Thanks Lord!
Let us out of here! We want solid ground!!!!!
Pumper Joe asked how I was going to get them back in..... A feed bucket of course. I jumped in the car, the bovine were gathered around me because I have them spoiled, I hung my hand out the window with the feed bucket it in and shook it a bit to get their attention and then started driving. They followed just like I hoped!
And thus ends the week of working with cows. Tomorrows trip to the vet should be a breeze, at least I'm praying it is. I always enjoy getting to visit with Mr. and Mrs. Doc, there's a lot I can learn from just a short visit with them. Doc has been doing this longer than I have been alive and it's always a learning experience for me! We are really blessed to have a good vet!
