Branding is done!!
Friday, May 13, 2016
What a day....at least we got branding done!! It was cold out brrr and windy....yikes and the electric iron kept throwing the barn breaker....some of the helping crew was late cuz their cows were out lol
Hubby and I vaccinated the cows as the neighbors sorted them and loaded them into the chute...that went smoothly. Then we had a quick coffee break with cake and cookies...I did freeze them so they still had lots lol.
When we started branding I was vaccinating the calves and got kick in the hand a few times and fingers squished and on and on...at least I didn't poke myself with the needle...have done that a few years and it really hurts!! My left hand is very swollen and bruised with lumps on a couple fingers.....will be a mess in the morning...the hazards of branding. Our neighbor got kicked in the knee and he was in a lot of pain!
With all the wind and breaker blowing we were a bit late for dinner...didn't get in to eat until around 1pm so not too bad! I had a beef roast and pork roast I had put in in the morning and turned down at coffee. The baked potatoes were in the crock pot, I made 2 salads and opened a can of beans at 6 am....as well as scrubbed and wrapped the potatoes...I also took the cake, cookies, 2 pies and buns out of the freezer. So dinner went over fine...with the leftovers I was able to freeze quite a few left overs for hubby while I am away!!
Looking forward to a relaxing evening and maybe not do too much for the weekend!!
Thanks for dropping by and have a great weekend! Keep on Sparkin'
