I went to the gym this morning. Came back home and showered and fed animals. Yes I'm lazy at 5:30 when I get up so they wait till I get back to eat. Anyhow I took a shower and took off for every 3 wk chiropractor appt. when I came home me and S put a round bale to arena cows. Funny thing I open every gate (there are 4) and slough through all the sucking boot mud and cut and dispose of the million strings on the bale if I can find them. S sits his behind on the tractor , spikes the bale and dumps it, puts away tractor. I reverse all the gates and mud and turn out cows. I'm not sure the balance of chores is very equal. Next up I have 2 ewes and I thought 2 lambs limping. Again I sloughed through mud, ran everyone inside (after playing ring a round the Rosie a few times) and doctored the 2 ewes feet. The lambs turned out to be 3 that had foot issues and last 2 born needed ear tags and scrapie tags. Got that done, untied steers who are petrified of piglets still and fight me to get loose and let's not discuss task of getting them inside in the 1st place, haltered and tied where they eat (beside the pigs). Came inside , scrubbed hands a few times, stink of foot nastiness and now want a shower again. All before noon. Wheeeee!!!
