I kept telling myself that today is Thursday, it feels like Friday. It’s my 2nd or 3rd Friday feeling day this week. Maybe tomorrow my mind and body will be in sync with the calendar.
J and I had a wonderful New Year’s Eve. We went over to a neighbor’s for a potluck. Good people, fun times and delicious food; what a great way to start 2013.
J and I keep working away a chores. I enjoy getting outside and working with the cattle. We start the day off feeding calves. The calves are on a growing ration and around Christmas time finally starting to look good. J goes out every afternoon to read bunks and look the calves over. I try to go with him a few times a week. We like to walk through the calves and talk about how they are changing and growing. This evening we went out and bedded them with straw. It is so rewarding to see healthy calves bucking, jumping and feeling good!
Next, we feed the bred heifers and cows coming with their second calf. They are young and we think they need a little extra care. Then we head over to feed the running age cows. They are always glad to see the tractor.
Last we feed the bulls.
The last week or so has been cold. Yesterday we had wind and blowing snow. Today was a beautiful 25* with a slight breeze. Sounds like we are in for more of the same type of weather, maybe a little warmer. It really has been a nice winter. I don’t mind a snow, but I am not a fan of wind.
What do your daily chores look like? How is the weather?
