........yesterday a bit more complicated and a little longer than usual.
What a day that was, yesterday.
First thing in the morning a weather imaginer, couldn’t get it right again as usual, Prediction, “No rain today!”
Eventually after much preparedness, cleaning planning laying out the pieces, I set about painting some supportive Tractor parts sheet metal. My first tack coats sprayed over everything, and here came the rain. Just what I needed. Well it was the underside of most everything that got the soaking. Temperatures in the plus eighties drying the most essential sides out , I at least managed to apply a decent finish to the more visible outer sides. The lesser undersides I get to look at later.
Horses needing hay I’m the one what moves it. And eyeing a new family upon the way, my last look before a slightly postponed supper, this momma needs watching. Catching a bite between looks only delays the cow’s comfort. She needed help. I call Roy and he brings the equipment. The cow having come home I catch Bullet who’s occupying the space between the place through where I need to move her. When I have the cow, I return Bullet loose to his bachelor pad.
To late in the day to do this alone, I needed help. Keith is called as well. Finding the calf’s nose, hooking the chains, we were all supposedly doing well until the calf was delivered. The cow delivered more than any of us expected. She had a prolapsed uterus.. This was more than any of us expected or needed, particularly the cow. Putting her in a head gate Keith and I held up the uterus and Roy pushed it back into the cow. I would be near 10:00PM before my day had ended yesterday, and these were only a few of life’s enjoyments.
