Things have quieted down the last few days. I don't get them all tagged but have been able to catch most of them. I did see one new one this morning but when I went back out his mother must have hid him somewhere as he was not seen again. Pulled another heifers calf today. That's 2 in 2 days :evil: Either my bull throws big calves or they have been in the oven too long. The heifer today licked the calf off Ok but when it tries to stand she bellows and knocks it down. I told her I have things for idiots too :twisted: Never a dull moment!

One can go into a wild country and make it tame,
but, like a coat & cap & mittens that he can never take off,
he must always carry the look of the land as it was.
He can drive his plow through the nigger-wool,
make fields and roads go every way, build him a fine house
and wear the stiff collar, and yet he will always look like the grass where
the buffalo have eaten and smell of the new ground he has trod.

Grandpap used to say that if it was easy everyone would want to do it :lol: I haven't had to pull a calf in a couple of years, knock on wood. I've got a bull that throws small calves that I use on my heifers. Seems like it never fails that they need help when it's late at night and bad weather.
