Even with tropical winds, our power went out about 9am this morning. We were out trying to make a shelter for the calves in the pen. We managed to get some tarps up along the fence to cut the wind and rain. Got soakin' wet in the process. And the little turds aren't even using the shelter! Here's what they look like right now......
Now, if they would go to the other side of the pen, the wind and the rain would be blocked, but nooooo, they can't do that.
We also had to go to town this morning to pick up a cow and calf at the sale barn. By the time we reached the sale barn, the tarp on the top of our stock trailer was shredded. It was flapping down the side. So once we got there, we had to cut the remaining shreds off.
But back to the cow and calf we picked up. This is a strange story. We sold the cow back in March. The guy that bought her brought her back with a bull calf. Some guys at the sale barn recognized our cow and called the husband. Said the cow had a nice little bull calf on her side and thought we would want to know. The husband asked them to bid on her and buy her back if the price was right. He figured that it was so weird how she and the bull calf came back to us, we'd better buy them back. The cow didn't have our brand on her and the husband cut her ear tag out before we sold her. So it was just odd that she made it back to us. The bull calf is out of a bucking bull we had bred with earlier this year. The husband plans on bucking the calf towards the end of the year and see what he does. If he bucks, we'll keep him, if not, it will go back to the sale. Me, I think he'll buck. Why else would he have been brought back into our life?
