KT Hollywood Cad is a charming colt out of Continental Piper, “Piper D,” and is by Doll Docsan, “Leroy.” Leroy is a stallion with a performance packed pedigree along with a very good disposition.

So here is to hoping for the best weather possible and just one more week of winter, then bring on spring, I am ready for spring.
Monday we went and helped at the BB Cattle Co sale, we had snow and some wind that day. Luckily they have internet sales now so there were lots of people biding online and some call in bids. But it was a cold and wet day, and it snowed the entire time. We got home and still had hay at the house from dad bring it up in the tractor the day before, Kaine, Kade and I walked to the corral and fed Whim, Bishop, Double, Kool and Smoke and threw some hay out in the pasture for the horses. There are some DEEP drifts. The boys fell down a number of times. Toni and Anna did chores up at the house, they could get the four wheeler at least part way down the driveway to feed so they did not have to drag the hay like us. Toni and I got out to the desert to feed the mares, now that there is so much snow they all do think they need fed, so came running as soon as they heard the pickup. Anna helped Ben feed the cows for a while because Kicker got stuck at work showing people around, yes in the snow. Kicker made it about the time Toni and I got done feeding the mares so Anna got reprieved. The snow and cold makes for a lot of chores.
We lost our last old bay mare Monday, Emmy. Emmy was a great mare and at least did not go downhill, and was still eating and drinking well up until her body started shutting down. Emmy is the mother to Cow Cutting Colonel, and she has had a number of nice foals at our house by Colonel and Dude.
The kids didn’t have school again Tuesday. Ben got to go in late so he checked the cows before he went in. He got off of work early, so he plowed the snow around mom and dads with the tractor again. We needed to get some hay from the corral, so he plowed the road down to there and Toni brought back enough for a couple of days. Toni went out and fed the mares and most of them came and met her. Coco was around so her and the kids helped with chores. There were still plenty of snow drifts to get through and it made for some interesting driving at times.
Wednesday no school again due to freezing rain in some areas, luckily we just got more snow and a touch of freezing rain. Ben had to go to work at normal time, I got a 2 hr delay. Toni checked cows and horses and luckily they were all holding their babies in. Thursday the snow and rain did not start until the afternoon, the kids had no school again and I went home early. Not the prettiest Valentine’s Day we have ever had, but everyone was healthy and safe, so you can’t ask for much more. And, speaking of Valentine’s Day, Happy 70th to Grandma and Grandpa.
Friday there was still no school. Anna and I got up and checked the cows, watered everything and fed the steers, bulls and show heifers. Then mom and I ran into Connell and got our hair done. When I got home Anna and I went out and fed the mares in the desert and then we all went down and did chores. In this weather, chores take about an extra hour, minimum. The kids really enjoyed the snow and went sledding, built a snow fort out of the snow pile (over 5 feet tall), and there was lots of snow flying at times. We also had a heifer, that was one of our embryo transplants, calve, and Poison, one of Kaine’s show heifers. Anything that calves or foals at this point gets moved into the barn just to be safe!
Saturday Ben, Anna, Kaine, Kade and I got the cows in that looked like they might calve this coming week and locked them in with the heavy heifers. We cleaned out the pen and got the two pair out, Big Boy, a fall calf, had to crawl in through the feed bunk to see who all the new ladies were. Anna and Kade worked on their miniature yearling fillies. Ben and I went out and fed the mares. Toni, Coco, the kids and I did chores and Ben and Kicker fed the cows, like every night.
Sunday Ben, the kids and I went to Moses Lake to get groceries and lunch after checking the cows, morning chores and Ben changed the fuel filter in the tractor. Toni, Kicker, Kade and Jaxsen took big bales down to mom and dads and put them out for the horses. We got back and went and fed the mares then went down and did chores. By Sunday a few of the mares were not coming in to eat the hay we feed everyday, I guess they thought there was plenty of grass under all of that snow, so we drove out a different way and checked them to make sure all was well. We are still feeding 34 head of mares everyday, but these additional 7 didn’t need us. They all look good, so I guess they know what they are doing.
Monday while Anna and were checking, we were home since it was President’s Day, we saw that Ro had foaled. We tried to get through the gate, which had a giant show drift it in, but got stuck. I tried calling Toni, she was on the phone with another attorney and she texted back and asked if she could call me later. I said NO, Ro foaled and I am stuck. She raced down and pulled us out and we got Ro into the barn. Cleo is also due any day. We did a Facebook poll to name the cute guy since it was Presidents Day and “KT Cant Trump This” won. Besides the foal we had a pretty normal day at home. Toni yelled at Kicker and I since we did not know who her favorite president was, it is Lincoln if you don’t know. Feeding, watering, checking, deicing. We are in for another front of bad weather on Wed. I feel like we are ready, but every time I think that, the weather is worse than I expect. So here is to hoping for the best weather possible and just one more week of winter, then bring on spring, I am ready for spring.

Monday the kids had no school, teacher in-service day, next Monday the kids have school, then next Monday the kids have no school, BB Cattle Co bull sale, then the next Monday no school for President’s day, then we will have to see about Mondays after that, we might revisit school on Mondays. Dad went and got more pellets, which was good since we were close to rationing. Anna and Kaine checked the cows Monday AM. I went to the East District for a meeting, then took coworkers to Checos for lunch. Kade had basketball practice Monday night, so Toni, Anna and Kaine did chores. Kicker came down and took the pellets off of the trailer. Ben got the steers in so we sent one to Colton Tuesday afternoon, he shows our steers at the fair.
Tuesday everyone was back to school again. Anna was excited because it was the start of a new semester and she has Ag with Mrs. Shattuck this semester. Anna is applying to be an ambassador with the 509 Show Circuit too, and she is excited about that. Toni checked cows Tuesday morning. Dad took Jewels to Sagehill Veterinary clinic to get an ultrasound to see if she is pregnant and he took a tire in from the flatbed trailer for a tire repair. Then he snuck in my house to get the left over pie out of my fridge for mom, but I caught him on the camera and sent him a text. The kids did chores, Toni had a meeting that went longer then she had expected.
Wednesday Toni checked cows in the morning, our big red eyed Hereford cow had a really cute black ballie heifer. The kids and dad did chores, Toni headed to Tacoma in the afternoon for a big case that she has going on. 337 calved after Toni left and before Ben got home. Thursday dad checked since Toni was in Tacoma, Rob’s cow Olivia calved. Kade, Jaxsen, Kaine and Kicker went to the Pinewood Derby in at the boy scouts. Both Kade and Jaxsen’s cars did really well. Kaine got his last Cub Scout award since he aged out of cub scouts. Toni said that the eating was good in Tacoma, but the people and weather, not so much.
Friday I did not have to work so I checked. Dad had an apt for Red to get the oil changed so I went and picked him up and took him back. Diane needed some totes, and we have lots, so she came out and got totes. Besides that I just checked the cows, cleaned the office a little. Toni’s mediation did not get done until late Friday, so she was really late getting home. Kade’s basketball team got to play during half time at the varsity girls basketball game, dad took him to it since Toni was not home yet. I hear it was a really good game. Kade’s team won, but it was against the 3rd graders, so good job to them for playing so well.
Saturday we had a pretty good day, we tagged the calves and checked the cows. Krista and Sue came out to look at Jitter Bug and Hollywood Cad. Ben, Anna and Kaine got the yearlings heifers and steers in and were getting yearling weights when I got back. Toni, Kicker, Kade and Jaxsen were at Kade’s basketball games in Connell, they won both, good job boys. Then we did chores and looked through the Hereford World and picked out Hereford bulls and heifers we want to buy (haha).
Sunday we checked cows, like normal this time of year. Then we weighed the show steers, they are gaining really well. Cody came and checked on Felix, and brought some friends, one is scared of horses. So of course the horses had to maul her. Then we did chores early to get home to watch the super bowl, and Toni, Kicker, Kade, Jaxsen and Kaine with to a superbowl party at Booths. We were also going through our long list of bulls to AI too and narrowing it down. Toni and I normally like the same type of bulls and Ben likes a different type, and Kicker normally just waits to see what we pick out and pick from those on what to breed too. Ben’s comments are always super amusing. One bull he says is so short bodied he looks like he ran into a feed bunk, and another is so fat his blubber is just falling off of him. Toni and my comments back on his bulls are must better, like not enough rib shape, not deep enough, etc. it is quite comical. We have the more professional, legitimate comments that count. No one can take Ben’s comments seriously. Winter it last night, so lets all hope it comes and goes quickly.
