Of all the Dumb....

Fern(Mi)    Posted 03-20-2004 at 11:57:17       [Reply]  [No Email] the wall of good intention Stunts, some dumby seperated a wrong calf from the wrong cow.
And Guess who's gotten water filled boot, mud socked tuxedo, sore muscles, and a disposition stretched to the limit. Right after I had taken an earlier pic (posted below) I found a downed calf lieing in one of johns well traveled ruts. Thankfully the backhoe was handy, luckily the cussed macine started, hardly something I'd expect to run so sweet after the dowsing we been getting this morning Ihead's for the calf. A few yards hence, walla, Flat tire. Just what's I need. A calf about to drown near starved to death without it's momma, and A tire needing fixing. Luckily again an air tank took the hoe to the calf. The calf's dug out, gotten warmed, force fed one bottle waiting daughter's help to feed him again. Dam if i don't feel bad over this whole mess.
But why couldn't these animals tell me somebody screwed up before the muck and the mire?

I think's I needs Clippers pot hat just to protect me from myself.

Dadgumit, I hate's day's when farming goes bad!!!

been there done that did it last year took some of the cows and calves out to pasture evrything went purdy well that was until about 9pm heard a cow bellering so went to check on her. acted like was lost or had lost something went and told dad so we drove out to the pasture where we had taken the other cows and calves and what would you know one extra calf. Looked at each other said oh sh*t now what well decide to get mom and take her to baby. Good thing I bought a 4wheeler last spring without it we would of been up darn near allnight finally got her in corral loaded in the trailor and finally reunited with her little one. Got back home looked at the clock it was about 1AM. Hopefully we wont have that trouble this year.

Does farming go bad or do we just have more challenges some days that others? I work off the farm and most days I would be glad to trade three so called good days for one day of badd farming.
