So i'm starting to worry. Hank actually yelped in pain when he got up yesterday. So i called and talked to my friend denise who works as a vet assistant at a vet clinic. we have an appointment on friday to see what steps need to be taken now. we have him on a low dose pain medication, but im afraid its not doing the trick. I am so worried about how he will do this winter. so i have my fingers crossed.

Sometimes, the best things come in small packages. This little heifer came out of Mark and I's first Red Angus calf. We have had her for 9 years and this is the prettiest calf shes ever given us. Mark thinks this will be her last year with us, so he doesn't know it but this little girl is gonna stay here.
I'm so sad sometimes when we have a cow for a long time then we have to get rid of them. Last fall we had to get rid of our first Angus cow we bought together. I cried for days. You miss seeing them out there in the morning. Sappy me! Mark makes fun of me, but i think he misses some of them to.

well, it is that time of the year once again. the kids are out of school, crops are in, hay needs to be baled and its almost fair week. we are busy getting my pictures ready, the kids are both in cloverbuds and i have decided to enter one of my baskets. i am also once again going to volunteer my time to take the 4-h ers photos at the fair.
this is my favorite time of the year and it goes by so quickly. the kids are growing up, the cow herd is expanding and we have more than ever to keep us busy.
