It’s a long time since I’ve had such a draining day. For the first time in I- don’t- know -how- long, I just did not have enough hours in the day. Nothing earth shattering or life changing, just normal ‘stuff’ that needed to be done. I think what got to me was that a lot of it had to be done NOW, or yesterday…
In between all that, the veterinarian came to check on ten of our cows. We had to get them tested for bruscella and TB before we can put them with the bull, and the vet had to come back and check the TB results. Of course we had to get the cows from wherever they were peacefully grazing, and get them into the chute/forcing pen (?) where she could examine them. Twice. Because three of them had some reaction to the test, and she didn’t bring her measuring thingy with the first time. So we had to do it again.
And then there was the fire. As the vet and her assistant left, they casually mentioned that maybe we should go and check on the fire that had started right opposite our farm. By that time we could actually see the smoke billowing up into the air. So we rushed to the road to go and make sure the fire didn’t jump the road, and get to the farms on our side. Fortunately whatever wind there was, was blowing away from our farm, and the people from the area made sure no damage was done.
All in all a hectic day, and I am quite tired now, so I’m going to add my pic, and call it a day. Put my feet up, and enjoy some rugby. 🙂
Have a wonderful weekend!!!! 🙂
