Some Fall colors from right behind my house.  Teresa took these while I milked tonight.  #309 is a camera hound!

Trick or Treat was put off till tonight due to the foul weather yesterday.  My Grandson "Buzz", oh, I mean Case, and my new Granddaughter Gracie.  They have had a blast tonight!  They need to feed Gracie better, she's nothing but bones!  The place on Case's forehead is a big knot he got running into a pew at church.  He needs a helmet 24/7!

Have a cow calving tonight.  Checked on her twice since I finished milking & heard her moans.  1st time 2 front feet showing, and right side up.  Hour later, the head is almost out, so all looks great.  I'll check her again around 9.  She should have it fine on her own, as she's a large cow, and not her first.

Those are some great scenery pics of your farm. Reminds me of the Farm and Ranch photos.

Checked on her around 9, and still not calved.  Head was all the way out & calf blinking it's eyes then though.

Then just a few minutes ago, I go check on her again.  If she hadn't made any further progress, it was in the barn to help her, as I don't care for being up all night waiting.  It's not a large calf after all.  BUT, this time was the mark of me officially off duty till Sunday morning.  She wa busy as a bee cleaning her just born calf.  I didn't check to see if heifer or bull calf, as I didn't want to bother her while she did her motherly duties.

Daniel, my wife Denise said to tell Teresa that she's jealous of your view! The only thing you can see out our back door is the north end of a southbound donkey.

Besides to make steers, I use those banders on stray CATS too!  :rolling:

Too bad those banders don't work on female cats I could use one.

Spending my day off doing some cleanup around the place.  The dumpster is getting a lot of visits today.  One can accumulate so much worthless junk/trash without even trying.  Want to get things cleaned up & put away best I can before snow flies.  The goats share a corner of the old chicken shed, so that makes it get dirtier, so backed out Hogzilla and doing a good sweeping & organizing.  Hope to get the Allis 620 in behind Hogzilla, and Now I need to find a place to store my 12" plow & my 52" 3pt tiller.  Never enough room!  I'm getting tired of climbing over stuff to get through, so takes even more room to allow foot paths.

It seems there comes a time when more is too much and it is time to let some of it go to a new home. I have reached that point. Next spring there is going to be a major clean up around here. I just sold the the 6' Brush hog and there is a lot more on the list. Daniel, bring your trailer and I'll load it up for you  :smilewink:

Chris, even if you gave me a load of stuff, I couldn't afford the trip to get it!  I wish I could make such a trip.  Never got that far myself.  But then you are in eastern SD!

  Yes, time has come for me to thin things.  But as I've said before, the Bush Hog tractors & attachments ALL STAY!   Dad is 88, and even if he recovers great from surgery this Tuesday, his time is nearing that he can't work as much, or possibly at all.  So my time for my hobby is going to get cut drastically as I try to do both what he & I did before.  My work load will just increase the older I get unless we give up dairy farming.
