The last couple of days!
Thought I would share the last couple of days with you all. Tuesday evening good friends of ours called and said there 80 year neighbor's cow was calving and the calf was breech. So we grabbed up supplies and headed that way. When we got there it took 3 people to get the calf out, we were not expecting the calf to be alive, since they were not sure how long she had been in labor. Well the heifer calf was alive and we got her going. Mom was another story-after all that she just wanted away from everyone! We finally got momma and calf together, but when we left she was not having anything to do with her. Dickie instructed/helped there foreman on what to do and when. It is not all the mommas fault she was too young to be bred and small. Then we came home and had to catch chickens! A friend of ours was wanting some and another friend was taking a few of my roosters. We put them in dog crates until morning when we were going to deliver them! The next morning one of the kennels was just moving about, the roosters were fighting! UGH! So hubby got them out and we tied there legs. BTW-Hubby says he isn't going into the chicken catching and deliver business! LOL! You definitely know your loved when he will help you catch chickens! Thanks honey! Yesterday we took 2 of the horses to Savannah's school for Texas week. We talked with them about the gear we use and why, how to tie a calf and anything else to do with the horses. Dickie and Savannah gave them a demonstration of how to ride and showed them how to spin and turn, stop, etc. They even got to brush them! They all seemed to have a great time and we really enjoyed doing it. Thanks Honey for helping me with the kids! You did a great job! Hope you all have a great and blessed day!
