The cows are due to start calving April 5th. Thanks to short gestation Angus bulls we are already busy calving. The Rancher is pecking away at getting equipment ready to farm and doing odd jobs in the shop.
We didn’t get many calves yesterday, so I decided to wash my chore clothes and do a little mending on my snow pants. This is what I posted as my Facebook status:
For Christmas J’s folks got us each a set of hand warmers for our 4-Wheelers; J put them on yesterday. I decided since I had the sewing machine out I would be nice and mend J’s swishy pants. The more I looked the more I saw they needed stitching. I stitched up the major snags and a few small ones. Half and hour later I quit looking. Apparently when baby calves go through barbed wire fences instead of following their mother’s through the gate, our chore clothes suffer the consequence.
I would much rather spend my time trailing pairs out to pasture instead of stitching up chore clothes, but some days we have to do the not so fun stuff too. So goes the life of a Ranch Wife. Today will be an all new adventure!
