On the farm…

11 Nov

It has been nice around here lately (NO SNOW!!) so we’ve my husband has managed to get a lot of fall work done! The cattle are all home and the calves have been weaned and shipped..lots of mooing and such for a few days, but all are happy and settled now. We also had our cattle preg-checked…which means we had the vet out to let us know which ladies were or weren’t pregnant and when exactly to expect these little babes…very handy info for my husband. (Here is a link that explains the how and why!) Makes life a little easier to plan come calving season! We even had a few vet students come out to help…great learning experience for them and a compliment to my husband. If the vet likes your handling system enough to want to have some students learn, you know you did a great job!

This is my boy watching….I think he was either concerned or confused….


Then the kids and I met up with a neighbour and went for a walk…

It was FREEZING!! So this is us “walking” home….



Hope your day is going fabulous and THANK YOU to all the past and present men and women who serve our countries.

    Ahhhh, preg checking! I had the opportunity to try my hand at it while we had a vet out and it was a really neat experience! 🙂

      Good for you! I have yet to try, although a friend from the city came out during calving and helped my husband remove a placenta….I took pictures!

      Hee hee…and please ignore the no car seats or seatbelts…it was 2 km on gravel. Calling this a “perk” of farm life!


I love to hear what you think!!!
