Well, I finally got the 3 little pigs (Bush Hog tractors) off the trailer & tucked away in their stalls this afternoon following feeding the cows.  My blood sugar dropped on me, so I drug myself in the house, had a snack, followed by supper.  Had planned to be lazy afterward, as once the sugar goes low, it's hard to recover that day.  Then I hear Teresa mowing the tight areas around the back of our house with the push mower.  Well cruds....now she's shamed me into mowing without knowing it.  Got the JD430 out & aired up the LF tire that I need to find the leak in.  Then the spring ride under the seat which had broken some  welds on Josh the other day when he borrowed it due to his zero turn being stolen.  Got things welded decent without removing the seat & got a lot of mowing done this evening. Glad she shamed me into mowing, as now I feel better than I would have if I planted myself in the recliner, plus the yard sure looks nicer!  Now I can kick back & relax!

I'm good at the moment, but if we run out, I might need you to "overnight" ship it!  :rolling:

I can probably get it there faster using the TD&H express. Just have to say there's a BH waiting for him.

Detailing costs?  I knocked off the larger mud chunks & she can wait for more cleaning.  She's not that dirty at all really.  

  Taking the milk samples of 79 cows during morning milking today was extremely nerve wrecking, but I got it done with not a single mistake! Now to work some with weaned calves, then after lunch haul some poo.

Dehorned 6 calves & gave them their shots, then turned them loose to the outdoors.  They've not left the barn yet.  I just let them mozie out the door when they get brave.  They are scared to death of the wide open outdoors after being under roof all their lives, but once they do go outside, boy do they have a ball....running/kicking.  Bad part is, they often run right through the fence!

That's one of the super enjoyable times about having little ones around, watching them run and kick up their heals. Our baby goats are fun to watch cause they have to jump/climb up on everything. We have a supply of big old logs and tree limbs for them to play king of the hill on.

I love watching the little long horns play. They aren't too bad about running through the fence although the one we call forklift will hook the fence and pull it up to get to the grass on the other side of it.

Long afternoon hauling poo.  One more day & it'll be emptied.  That won't be tomorrow, as I take Dad for his surgery in the morning as soon as I feed silage.  If Dad is doing well, Josh & I will haul poo Thursday.  Without Dad manning the poo pump, it's tiring getting in/out of tractors filling & hauling, but it's gotta be done.  Likely doesn't bother Josh like it does me.  My hips & knees take it hard after a while.  Still gotta feed silage tonight, but had to come in for a cup of Uncle Willie's "fluid of life"!   Betchya didn't know that is coffee!   :rolling:

It'll be fine...I have the faith.  The chemo after is what worries me.  Not sure what type chemo yet.
