Four calves today. Geez! I think there are two above in the photo. Little blobby bits napping in the sun. With each calf, we need to tag within the first day. We ( we being Brent ) also must castrate if necessary. Otherwise, they are too frisky. I think they have rodeo events about catching calves. If you get them in the first day, they are too confused to work out what’s going on. This is a dangerous part of the job. One calf at a time is great. Four in one day, I wish for all girls. Two boys and two girls were born today. Moms were great and Brent tagged all four without fuss. He has his technique down and everything.
As this is an “L” year and we are required to name each calf, might you have any good names? Already named:
- Legion of Boom
- Lido Shuffle
Also in the progress bucket, that giant wood pile of way back when is being cut into warmy burny logs.
Lumi is right there supervising. A big pile of warm. Though, as I write, my front door is wide open and the sun is shining. I think I might pour myself a Kir.
