Working cattle in the heat....
Friday, September 06, 2013
Hi today we did some cattle work..rounded up and pulled the bulls and moved the 2 big home herds together in one barley field for them to graze. Most of the day went fine..the last herd to move were stubborn and we finally got them near the gate and they all waded out into a big slough! I hopped off my quad and jumped right in too lol!! it felt sooo good!! we finally got them all where they were supposed to be and were ready to take part of the afternoon off!
So we changed into swim suits and went to our closest dugout for an afternoon of swimming :) oh it felt so good. Hubby doesn't swim much so this year I bought a couple life jackets and we wore those..he doesn't like me to swim alone so the life jackets make him feel better. The dugout is at least 12 feet deep maybe more and huge. I brought a cooler of beer and snacks so that was fun too.
After supper hubby went to check on the bulls and 3 out of 5 had broke fences and returned to the cows :( So he put them in the corral and fixed fence. Now he is out baling..it is way too hot to bale during the day.....he wants me to pick him up in about 1/2 hour...
Tomorrow we plan to go to Moose Jaw (that really is a name of a city in Sask) a museum there is having a threshing day and antique parade and hubby loves that stuff. It is supposed to be cooler and maybe showers so here's hoping!!
Well that about wraps up my day...
Thanks for dropping by and keep on Sparkin' and enjoy your weekend!!
