Well, Here is goes ... a long post but Hey, I Gotta post something.... The morning started last night really. You see While Dad and I went to the Rodeo and rode in the Grand entry, Mom stayed home and tried to get everything ready for The shearer. Then she said she was going to bed early. Well, The going to bed early had a few hang ups. First, My new steer roping steers tore down a fence and got in with the fiber Animals. When Mom went to move them they decided to wig out and then even Hank wouldn't get near them. Mom finally got them back onto the back 30 acres. So before the break of dawn, before even Mom and Dad got up, I went out and repaired the fence. I had to because last night Mom was so mad and the cattle were such a pain that Mom said either the fence got fixed and I keep them where they belong or they are gone. I like team roping so I need to practice and If I want to practice I better make sure those pesky steers were they belong.
After that there was the stuff to get done before Danny the Shearer came. Since Mom had to give up her time to deal with the cattle instead of the things that needed done to make shearing run right. So when Mom and Dad got up and around we did everything to get the lots ready for the shearing. We use shearing time to do alot of things. First it is water troth cleaning day, spraying for mites and pests day, hoof clipping day not to mention worming and alot of other things not to mention all the stalls cleaned. Because we were behind and The Shearer was early Mom got someone to cover her shift this morning and she helped get us on track and everything sheared.
Mom fed the chickens while Dad and I did the horses....
The Bunnies got to go out again and this time they are moving around and feeling better... I think they look better too but it sure does make it hard to get good pictures.
So As for tonight it is Rodeo time and then off to bed because tomorrow under the cover of darkness ... Wendi and Jorden come home!!
