Perfect Timing

The boys have been working on AI-ing our heifers.  Daniel has helped some neighbors with their heifers as well.  Today was our Big Day and I was called into help.

I had spent the morning transplanting flowers but they wanted me after lunch, so my tomatoes will still have to wait to be planted.

Vernon would haul the heifers away as the boys finished a bunch.  Daniel and Brandon alternated putting a heifer into the chute, then AI-ing her, and I was record keeper and chute operator.

AIingWe only AI our heifers, thank goodness, and the guys are quite good at it now.  In fact, they were talking quite in depth about female reproduction and hormones… which makes me snicker just a wee bit.


They processed them right along… and Megan brought us a quick supper, then they were back at it.  We finished right before dark… perfect timing!

Last Breath

The end of an era…

The second most photographed barn in Wyoming has finally lost its battle with gravity…

Here she is May of 2014… looking sad as her second floor collapsed…
