So, this is the last call, the last chance to see the kids show steers or buy some beef for 2021 from the kids. 

Happy Labor Day. Monday we got Gunner’s pen in and pulled him and took the 3 pair home that needed to be weaned. We had some people show up to look at the two yearling fillies we have left, and they took Dime, now we are just down to Shi of the yearlings for sale. Dime was a hard one to sell because she is our last Sissy foal, but she needed lots of one-on-one work and we didn’t have time to give it. This is better for her and sometimes you just have to make those hard choices. Next we went to CBJLS to set up for the show in the coming week with the 4H group. We ran downtown and got a coffee or smoothie, I was the only one that got a coffee, when we got done. Then we went home and did chores.

Tuesday I took the camper to work with me to get worked on by the Mobile RV Dr. It is having slide issues. He could not fix it, mobily, since the whole slide has to come out. So I called Broadmoor and made an appointment for Oct 29th. We always go to Broadmoor because they are a big supporter of the community, donating money to the livestock shows and buying kids’ animals. They support us so we support them. Toni, Leslie, Traci, and the tiny girls worked on steers to get them ready for CBJLS and Othello. You know stuff is real when the adults are having to work on the kids’ steers. Leslie and Traci hauled them over to my house so their steers could have a “trip” before their final trip to the fair. Toni worked on Big Boy Brad and Kaine’s steer. Anna’s steer for CBJLS is a bottle calf she raised so no one feels the need to work on him, which may be a mistake, we will see. Ben is back to harvesting, so 2:30 AM mornings. Kicker is also harvesting and checking spud sheds, so Toni and I did not know if they would be there for chores, but they were. So we went and fixed some fence after horse chores.

Wednesday was steer weigh in for CBJLS. Toni and Dad did chores way early. The weaned foals had somehow broken one of our big sprinklers into three separate parts, yet none of them were hurt at all.  Kaine and Kade had football practice, so Anna, Jaxsen and Toni loaded the steers and took them in and met the other two. The steers all weighed in great and were acting unremarkable, which is what we want. Leslie and Traci brought their steers in. The 4-H group had 16 steers at CBJLS. For the most part all of the steers were acting really great.  We had dinner with the 4H group after weigh in to discuss the week.  Our good friend Leonard joined us for dinner even though his daughter has moved to FFA. We must be entertainment or something.

On Thursday Toni and the kids got up early to go in and wash. I went to work for a board meeting. The kids had market classes on Thursday, they all did great. Natalie and Kaine made it back to the championship round, and Kaine was Reserve champion. All of the kids showed great. I went home and did chores. Dad went and picked up the older kids, and Leslie and Toni took the younger kids to the movies, it was part of the fair activities, so was free to the exhibitors. The movie theater was absolutely packed with kids. CBJLS has amazing community support making it very relaxed along with a great experience for the kids. We were pretty worried that the late night movie was going to make some people grouchy, but it was a movie Jaxsen really really really wanted to see and continues to talk about now that he has seen it. Toni and Leslie said it was good. There was action, humor, and of course the popcorn and candy made it worth it.  The movie was called Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.

On Friday the kids had Fitting and Showing. They started with oldest to youngest, FFA then down to PeeWees. Anna was Reserve Champion Senior, Kaine was Grand Champion Intermediate, Kade was 3rd overall.  Natalie was Grand Champion Jr and Julian was Reserve Grand Champion Jr. All of the kids showed great. Then we had PeeWees, Kayla showed Kade’s steer, Hannibal Hays, and Savannah showed Jaxsen’s steer, Big Boy Brad. Then Big Boy Brad and Kaine’s steer, Ike, were used in adult showmanship, where Toni won and Wes was reserve. Toni wasn’t going to show but Wes and Jesse Fletcher were trash talking so she said she had to do it. It was a 60/40 split on entries so she won enough money to buy us Chinese food, clearly worth it.  Natalie and Kaine went around and learned how to show the other animals and Anna, Kade, Ady and Julian washed all of the steers. Big Boy Brad was also used to teach the kids from the other species how to show, so that AJ and Ike could rest.  Clearly the real winner here is Big Boy Brad, who may not have been the prettiest steer at the show, but clearly was kind and easy.

Friday night was the Round Robin, it was great, 3 out of the 4 winners were beef kids, George Dress (who is just an all-around good kid), Kaine and Natalie, we are proud of all of them. Our entertainment for Friday night was axe throwing. Toni, Traci, Manny, Natalie, Ady, Julian, Jaxsen Savannah and Kayla all participated after waiting in line for over an hour. They say it was pretty cool. Manny told us that for $12 we could all go to Pasco and throw axes without waiting in line in the cold, but that wouldn’t be free. 

Saturday started with livestock judging, then the Connell parade down town, next the livestock sale, then we loaded out steers and finished with the banquet and dance. The sale was great, and thank you to all of our buyers. Koncrete Industries bought Kaine’s Reserve champion steer. Danz Farms (JJ and Judy Danz) bought Natalies, Bar None bought Adys, Grain Acres bought Julians, Corrales Ag (Erica Corrales) bought Kades, Broadmoor RV (thank you for being a repeat buyer) bought Annas, and Ed Poe (again, thank you for being a repeat buyer) bought Jaxsens. We got the livestock judging results were we learned that our boy Flaco (also known by his real name of Trinton) got a 297 out of 300 and was the overall winner. We were so excited and proud for him. Anna was no slouch with a 295 and winner of the FFA division.  All of the kids did great. Then we all hung out and waited to load the steers and then went and ate and the kids danced while we laughed the laugh of the overly tired. We all had a great time, getting to see some great friends that we only see at CBJLS.

Sunday we picked up the stuff from Connell and moved it to Othello and decorated there. It is our last terminal steer show, then we are back to jackpotting the 2022 show steers and heifers. We went out to eat at Checos after setting up and then went home to rest for a few minutes, do homework, starting cooking for Othello and work on the CBJLS pictures.

The kids are going to get a couple of days of school and football practice before we head to the Othello Fair for the rest of this coming week.  So, this is the last call, the last chance to see the kids show steers or buy some beef for 2021 from the kids.  We have some great steers headed to Othello with some great showmen doing their best to bring home the buckles.

It is crazy to think we are already into the middle of August!

Monday the three older kids worked on their steers and then went over to Connell with McCall and McKenna to say good bye to them, and give Leslie and Jay a present with the twins for taking them to Nebraska. They then came home and did chores. I went to Othello for a working meeting and then back to Pasco.  We still have a mares on regumate, Cancan getting doctored, water to move, and lots of other fun fun projects. We are also getting Slugger tamed down to start halter breaking him so moved him to the corral so he can see humans.

                Tuesday morning Mike Chubbs came out and butchered three heifers and a pig. Dad went to Allie’s to pick up Stinger. Toni texted and said Chad was bringing some wheat straw out today. Anna and Kaine caught Monica and Addy to start halter breaking, we are going to try to take Monica to Benton Franklin Fair.  Toni texted me that she wanted to turn out Dime and Shi, they have been in with the old mares, so she turned them out in the big pasture with the other yearling fillies. Once Stinger was unloaded the kids decided which one of them was getting a driving lesson pulling a trailer on the way back to my house, Kaine won that so he got to drive.  On the way they saw a cow in heat and the bull calves riding her. So Toni and the kids went out to get her in. They had her in and she jumped through the fence and in into a different pen. Then Anna said that they already had her in once, she pushed the gate open into the wash rack and jumped the wash rack fence and got out. Guess who gets to go on a trip to town?  Jaxsen was not impressed with the cow and talked about how dumb she is for quite a long time after that.

Wednesday the kids worked on their animals. Toni and Jaxsen got down to do chores when the other kids were already leaving, so Jaxsen did not go and work on his steers, it was getting hot, so I feel like he was ok with this.  Dime and Shi had gotten the round pen open so were back in with the old mares, I guess they don’t like being in the big pasture. I got there in time to help change water.

By Thursday Monica and Addy were so great the kids lead them to their pen and back without setting any panels. Jaxsen got stung in the eye lid while doing chores, so he went home with Toni. We got more wheat straw from Chad on Thursday and the Jon Mastre bailed our hay. The water pump went out in the stacker so it all did not get stacked. Murtaugh went with Ben on the tractor to work on a circle and then try to help with the stacker.

Friday Jaxsen was milking the wasp sting, and could not look up what school supplies he needed, or go work on his steers due to his eye. In the afternoon mom and the kids went over to Connell to see grandma. Marlo came to do chores, after chores Marlo went with the kids to work on steers. Jaxsen’s eye is still swollen.  Mom also got stung by the wasps in the arm. I guess the wasps are getting aggressive.

Saturday Leslie, Traci, Anna, Kaine, Kade, Ady, Julian, Natalie, Joe, Dad and I went to Jana Kollers to look at steers and heifers. We met Bill and Kayla there. So we spent the morning looking at 2022 show animals. Then Dad, Anna, Kaine, Kade and I left and went and had lunch at Lyon’s Ferry Mariana. Everyone else went and looked at Bill’s fall bulls. We got back to the house and Kade went home for a bit as Toni had some friends over with their little boy. Anna and Kaine washed their steers. Kaine went and helped Ben worked on the fence in the weaning pen. Anna and I went out and checked the cows and horses. Comet needed to come home, so Anna and I took her to mom and dads. She is getting old and somehow hurt herself and has a swollen shoulder.  Kade and Jaxsen came down and washed their steers. Then they went and helped move stuff around so we could wean on Saturday. Then we went down and did chores, and the kids worked on their two and three year olds.

                Sunday morning we weaned the bull calves. We sorted off some cows to send to Toppenish, and so then we got the heifer calves in to sort some cows off that were in there to send. Terry and Erina came and picked up Livvy. Toni and I went out and caught Dolly and brought her to the house, she needs to go in to Sheena and get her travel papers so she can go to CA. We haltered Slugger, we are getting him ready to go to the Midwest. Toni got stung in the hand by a wasp while we were down at the corral. We also moved the yearling colts to the middle pen and King back into the back pen. Kicker and Jaxsen fixed fence between circles 5 and 6. The kids came down and did chores and then worked on their three year olds. Anna rode Jag out of the round pen with the saddle. We make them start the horses without a saddle, so this is the first good ride Anna had with Jag saddled. Toni and Anna even rode down the driveway then around to the back of the house. Jag did really good.

It is crazy to think we are already into the middle of August! We are beginning our last week of summer with the kids before we start the marathon fair season.  We are making our foal weaning schedule, shipping mares home, and getting ready to gear up for fall. Anyone with a foal purchased, please get in touch with us so we can get that foal weaning schedule complete. We do have some really fancy foals left for sale as well. We also have two Hereford steers, that are around 300 lbs for $400.

Anyone looking for beef? The kids will be selling their steers at Benton Franklin, CBJLS, and the Othello fairs with sales on Aug 28, Sept 11, and Sept 18. For those that don’t want to go in person, you can call in, have someone bid for you (we can help with that), or call the fair office for options. There are lots of hard working kids out there with animals for sale, so please support your local fairs as many of these kids depend on the funds they earn.
