The weanling pen is full to capacity and it is cold and time to get chores paired down to a minimum. Cold winter weather is on the horizon.

Fall is definitely in the air, or winter, Monday was a little on the chilly side, but at least the sun was shining.  Kayla came out to brand inspect in the morning, so Toni ran down there to show her the cattle. All 4 kids had school. The bus called and said it was going to be late because it was stuck behind a train, but Anna got home and said one of the kids on the bus got sick so they sat at the potato shed for like 10 min, then turned around, drove around Connell and then switched buses. So it was a cluster to say the least. Toni almost went to get them. Mom had them stay out of the house since we do not know what is wrong with the kid on the bus. Toni came down and they did chores, wormed the yearling fillies and worked on Whammy and Slider, who both did awesome.

Tuesday Toni had a mediation at 10 and mom and dad went to town for Dr Appts. Toni texted me at one point and asked what day of the week it was, people were having Monday issues. Anna and Kade rode their two year olds out of the corral and into the driveway.  Jitterbug walked slowly around, her normal rate of speed, and Jag was nervous at first and did not want to go, but warmed up to the idea and did great. Anna and Kaine went home after to do chores at home. Ben has confiscated “The White,” the pickup I bought at Musser Bros auction to replace the blazer. He always has some excuse on why he needed it instead of his own. Things like, well his doesn’t run, or it needs to be fixed, or that there are no shocks left so it doesn’t ride very nice. All sound like whining. Dad went to get pellets on Wednesday, so on Tuesday Ben and Kicker made sure that Red and the flatbed were ready to go.

Wednesday the sun was shining. Dad said up north when he went to get pellets that there was snow but it was sunny. Anna went to her friend Josie’s house. Toni, Mom, and Kaine went and picked Kade and Jaxsen up at school and then went to lunch at Michael Jays. After lunch they went out to see grandma, it was her 90th birthday. And she does not want anyone making a big deal out of it.  She is the opposite of Grandpa. Maybe that is why they worked so well together. So it was low key at Grandma’s house, just Toni, Mom, the kids, and the Joe Bennett cousins and their kids. When I got to moms Ben was there with the tractor and Toni, Ben and Kaine were unloading pellets, so I helped Kade and Anna ride their horses.  Jitterbug still walks so slow, but at least she has stopped pawing when she gets annoyed. Jag is just good. She is annoyed, she wants to be a pasture pet, but she does what Anna asks her to do.

Thursday we were back to looking for somewhere to process our meat, expanding our search a little wider. Kaine had a parent teacher conference after school, he was the only one with one, his is getting all As, so I don’t know why he needed one. It only lasted maybe 5 minutes. Toni rode Shadie and ponied Anna and Kade around on their two year olds while we were at the conference. Kendel and Toby brought Scrat back down to mom and dads, Scrat is the Hereford bull. 

Friday was windy and cold. Toni and Kicker took Kade and Jaxsen to the Freeman Pumpkin Patch. Tennelle came and got Anna, and took her to carve pumpkins, then she came and got Kaine and took them all to the straw maze. Dad went and looked at a Percheron mare for Morgan and Joe. Marlo came to help do chores, so Toni, Marlo, Kade and Jaxsen did chores.  They had to get Scrat in because Ben and Kicker moved the weanling calves down to the alfalfa fiend since it has had a good freeze. For some reason we don’t trust the big huge Hereford bull to stay on his side of the fence and not try to breed our precious little baby weaned heifers.  Scrat came in really well and got put out with the weanling foals. The foals were not scared of him at all and everyone in the pen just went about their business.

Saturday the kids washed and started clipping their animals to go to the show next weekend. Ben worked on the corn field fence. I helped the kids for a while. Then Ben and I got the cows in, Kicker came and we sorted out Kameron’s heifers and the beef cows. The kids that were not clipping put show halters on their animals and set them up with their show halters on. I also took some new pictures of the bulls in between clipping and moving cows. Then we went down and did chores.  Toni rode Shadie again and ponied Jitter and Jag around a bit further. Anna rode Jag up the driveway. It was really exciting because the 2 big Hereford bulls stand at the fence and beller at each other so they had to ride between them up the driveway then back. The weanling foals ran around like crazy the entire time, but Jag only spooked once and just a tiny bit. Anna is still riding her bareback with a sidepull. Kade has Jitter in a hackamore. 

Happy Halloween

Sunday we finished up clipping. We hauled 917 down with the weanlings, 917 is a old cow that needs a little more than corn stalks, and there were 3 coyotes surrounding the weanling calves. Toni and I spooked them off. We went down and caught Friday, Ollie and Pocket, we took Friday and Pocket to mom and dads and put Ollie in with Pistol to go back to Jeannie. Anna is going to start riding Pistol. Anna rode Pistol around for while when Kade was clipping. We weaned the rest of the foals, except Fly Guy since he is so young and Dime since she is in a different pen.  We had to run the mares in to get Golden, so we wormed anything that came in that had not been wormed. Anna and Kade rode Jitter and Jag for a little while before it got dark.  This isn’t a long list, but it was pretty time consuming. We got Aught and Dual in to be the next halter breaking projects. Toni already worked on them in the roundpen even though we normally give them a day to get accustomed to the halter and lead rope. These two are just pretty easy going.  Really, it isn’t good to just halter break easy stuff. You have to keep your muscles and mind strong for the challenges of a challenging foal.  So maybe next weekend we will get something in with some attitude. Not sure which one that will be though.
