Monday was cold, cold, cold. So of course chores took forever, breaking water, making sure everything had water, etc. Ben and Kicker were out late getting everything settled in, we have a couple of cows that are going to calve any day. Mike came out and started on our central air, Toby came down and locked the dogs in the living room for me, thanks Toby. Toni checked cows and stopped and talked to Mike for a while. Toni had a bunch of stuff that needed filed by Monday, so Anna, Kade and Jaxsen did chores. Kaine had a basketball game in Connell, dad went and watched him. Still no sign of the clothes bag or belt buckled. I posted it on Facebook and it was shared by all my friends, thanks everyone. Hopefully the belt buckle turns up. It started snowing Monday night.
Tuesday we had some snow, not like there was in Pasco. Ben got up early to go and check the calving cows since it was so cold, of course Jaxsen’s cow Cutie Pie calved in the cold, Jaxsen named his calf Spark. Ben gave him some colostrum, the calf was up and doing good when he left. Ben got the water broke and show animals fed. Kids had a two hour delay. When Toni checked 713T had calved, she gave her some straw and 604 was acting like she was going to calve. 604 had calved when Ben and Kicker went out to check later and 634 calved Tuesday night. Kaine had another basketball game on Tuesday, the boys played the best they have ever played. Mrs Booker got her boys subway on the way, she brings a handful of boys whose parents are all at work, and Kaine got a pizza pocket before. I think we decided they all needed a small meal before the game. Chores were a delight in the cold I hear.
No new calves on Wednesday, and it was COLD COLD COLD. We are getting central air put into our house, so Toni stopped and talked to Mike and Mike’s son on her way back by from checking. No basketball practice on Wednesday, so all of the kids got to help with chores. Toni said that chores were a lot of fun with the snow pelting he in the eyes. Anna huddles against Toni’s back as they drive the Polaris around to do chores, some of which are north bound, with wind and snow coming from the north. Not fun. Kaine and Kade both had goggles and thought the snow was a lot of fun. They wanted to hang off the bank of the 4 wheeler trailer and slide on the snow. Toni and Anna were not as impressed. Ben and Kicker were in a little earlier than the night before, so the water must have been working with them on Wednesday. While I was loading the dish washer Wednesday night, I got a fork shoved up under my thumb nail.
Thursday I have a lot of pain in my thumb. So I text my nurse cousins to ask them if it looked normal for a fork injury, and as long as I am up to date on my vaccinations I am good and just need to watch for infection. It was slightly warmer on Thursday, so that was an improvement. It was Toni’ day to go and stay with grandma, so she got everyone Chinese for lunch, so Jay would not criticize her cooking. Then it turned out that Jay was home sick, but the Chinese was still good. Kaine was supposed to have basketball practice Thursday after school, but it started snowing to practice was canceled. The boys went sledding after chores until it was too dark to see. Allegedly they “dumped” Jaxsen out of the sled. They say that they tripped and he fell out. No harm done other than a grudge match between the two older boys and the little boy.
Friday mom went over to sit with grandma, she took lasagna over. And yes it is sitting. Grandma thinks she is fine and doesn’t know why everyone is making such a fuss. Yeah, a fractured pelvis is nothing to fuss over! Toni checked the cows, no new calves. We had more snow on Thursday night and Friday. Toni and the kids did chores, the boys went sledding. Russy calved on Friday and decided she does not want a Hereford calf, she wants an Angus calf. So now Anna has a bottle calf again. Russy is not on the favorite list anymore. Friday I received a list of “to do” items from Toni that needed to be done over the weekend. But then I found out that Toni and the kids did most of them. The yearling colts had gotten some of their fence down, so they fixed it. Jackpot has been hitting his panels and needed one replaced, so they started on that. King has a bit of a limp, that was checked, and nothing to do there. So we just need to finish replacing the panel and check the mares over the weekend, and everything else that will need to get done.
Saturday We tagged the calves that were born during the week and went down and checked the cows and calves in the other corn field. Ben worked on his room and Anna and I got the heifers in off of the hill and got their calves tagged and the calved heifers turned out. Angus cow 926 calved, finally had a bull calf.
Sunday the sun was out and the snow was melting. We got the bulls in and got yearling weights and poured on them. Then we got all of the steers in and did the same. Ben, Anna, Kaine and I fed the cows and heifers, so when Kicker came down they could get all of the hay loaded, and then put out grass bales down at mom and dads. The boys were disappointed they could not sled, but most of the snow is now gone. The rest of us are happy about the lack of snow. Also, Kaine rode Pocket around and he is going to claim her as his next horse.
And last but not least, Whim is doing great over with Josh. He is planning on riding him on Thursday.

December has been relatively warm, we had a light brushing of snow Monday morning, but not too bad, and it melted off fairly quickly. It has been a touch windy, but it always is. Dad had physical therapy on his shoulder Monday, and then he stopped by and got Kaine and took Kaine home with him. Mom and Kaine played cards and board games most of the day. Anna and Ben went to town and got supplies for Ben’s remodeling project. Toni was busy most of the day with some big cases she is working on. She has a couple of big Federal cases, some big bankruptcy and lots of other stuff. Toni, Kaine, Kade and Jaxsen did chores, I think Jaxsen just fed Kool and Double, but it was hard work. The three older kids are getting kind of irritated that Jax only has one small job, yet he complains like he does the most work of anyone. Nellie and Shiner are in to get haltered and both already act like this is old news. Anna has completely taken over Nellie. Toni really wants me to take Shiner off the for sale page and lets just see how he does. Shiner is priced pretty high, so I am not as worried about it as she is.
Tuesday was even warmer then Monday, we woke up to rain and not snow. We also woke up to 11 year old 808 having twin bulls by Eathington Sub-Zero, and a Hereford heifer having a black ballie heifer calf. I had work, so Toni and the kids did chores at the normal time. The foals were already ready to tie. Tuesday night we went to our cousins’ house for a game night in the show barn. We had a lot of fun playing Codename, the card game Golf, and Memes. We left at 12:01.
We had a couple of heifers born on the 1st, Toni’s heifer, 543, 843 and 337 all calved. Ben’s last day home on his winter break, he was hard at work on his remodel project, that he thought he would be done with by now (not even close). We took down our Christmas decorations, we normally leave them up longer, I don’t know why we decided to do it. Then we went down to do chores and take new pictures of some of the yearlings. The weather was absolutely perfect. This is such a great group of foals. The weather is so nice it feels like spring in Jan. It was the perfect first day of 2020.
Ben went back to work. Worst day ever. Katie calved on the 2nd, a nice bull calf for Kade, so far all that guy has are bulls. Anna and Kaine went and checked the cows, Toni and Dad were on standby if something went wrong. On Kaine and Anna’s second check 633 had had a nice bull calf. The kids all went down and helped Toni with chores and worked on the foals. Nellie and Shiner are ready to get turned back out, they are doing awesome. We found out late in the afternoon on Thursday that our Grandma fell down and fractured her pelvis.
Friday 341 had a nice heifer calf. Chad came out and Toni, Chad and Kade trimmed horses and Bunny’s feet. Toni found out that Bunny likes wheat thins. Pow and Sally love Bunny, so they were really upset that Bunny was locked away from them, so they stood at the fence next to her trying to untie her and get her halter off. Toni told me I owed her a pizza for holding Bunny, so I told her I would get her the cheapest cheese pizza they had at Winco.
Saturday was a big calving day, when Ben went out and checked heifers, Kaine’s bottle calf, she is now a two year old and not a calf, had a cute heifer calf by Black Onyx. 530 had a heifer calf by Raindance and 452 had a heifer calf by our herd bulls. Later when we went out to check, 522T had a bull calf by Eric, our 10Y son. We were busy all day Saturday, but I could not tell you exactly what with. We tagged calves, I updated our cattle records, Ben worked on his remodel, Toni worked on cases, she had billing she needed to do, and had not gotten done yet. Just lots of stuff going on. Toni let Nellie out and got Jojo in, then Toni and I got a halter on her, and we worked on Jojo and Shiner. We wanted to keep the biggest for last.
Sunday Jaxsen’s cow, Noisey, calved and he named her Alicia Keys, and he is planning on showing her. He really named her Music, but I told him that wasn’t acceptable. It took some hard negotiating to get him off of Music. Multiple discussions about their theme this year for naming. He finally decided Alicia Keys was acceptable. After we got done tagging calves Ben, Anna, Kaine and I went to Moses Lake, to get more supplies to for Ben’s remodeling project and get Toni a cheese pizza, and a Papa Murphy’s pizza which she already figured I was going to do. Mom and Dad had lunch with cousin John and his wife Cindy in Moses Lake. Toni and Kicker showed a couple of guys the beef heifers we have left. Then Toni worked on clients and billing. Toni has been under the weather for about a week with coughing, sore throat, etc, so she may have rested a tiny bit over the weekend too. Then, I worked on Jojo and Anna worked on Shiner, I had Anna let Shiner go and go and feed Double, since Jax had not quite made it down yet. Then, Toni got there, so Jaxsen finished his chore, Kade and Kaine did front chores and Toni worked on Jojo for a while. Both foals are doing great. King and Louie had gotten out with the mares, but they don’t realize they are stud colts, so they came running back in when we shook the grain bucket. We need to rebuild that fence too, so another thing on the to do list! We are hoping that this weather continues to be perfect for calving as we continue getting lots of calves in January.
Also, we still have a few 2019 foals left for sale if anyone is looking for a one.
