The Good Life

Postby koj » Wed Mar 09, 2005 7:42 am

Got a chance to visit the in-laws for a few days. I took the night check on their first calf heifers. I had forgotten how much I love it. Maybe if I had to be there longer I would remember how hard it was!

The heifers were AI'd to a New Design bull. They looked like jack rabbits (havn't pulled one yet) when they hit the ground, but they got up with a tit in their mouth. Makes me miss God's Country.

Hey koj, we miss you out here too! If you get a few days, number one son would be more than tickled to let you take over the night checks for him. He's starting to look a little bleary eyed. No sleep and moving young pairs to the nursery pasture in the wind yesterday is making him cranky. Didn't do much for my disposition either.

Now I'm starting to remember. It is like baby sitting 250 kids everyday, only I don't have to watch them at night!
