Can you see the flies swarming above the cows' backs?
Cows asking, "Where have our babies gone?"
We sorted them away for a short time
so we could give them their booster vaccinations
and some insecticide.
Calvies going into the barn to get their shots.
We sorted the bulls out from the cows.
This bunch should be bred by now.
Counting calves out of the barn gate.
Each morning this week we have been rising early to go get a bunch of cows and calves to work before the heat of the day. By the time we are done with a bunch it's really hot and sticky in the barn. So many big bodies in one place makes it HOT and HUMID. Our shirts and jeans are drenched. This afternoon we hit 99* and the wind started blowing so it feels like a blow dryer out there. I am so very thankful that I can go inside where it's cool and comfortable. Since the temperatures are so extreme, it makes our atmosphere more volatile to thunderstorms. A good shower would be wonderful about now, but dry lightning could be disastrous. Hoping for rain or nothing.
Hey, did any of you sit out in the dark night and watch the meteor shower? It was cloudy here on Wednesday, the best night, but last night (or should I say early this morning) at 2:00 I went out to my lawn chair, reclined it back, and star gazed. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The sky was so clear and the stars were shining so brightly, I felt very small and insignificant. And to think, The Creator of the stars thinks of you and me. Amazing!
