On Monday we finished sorting steers from heifer pairs. The steer pairs headed North, the heifer pairs headed South. My best cowgirl Bandit was in the lot helping me sort and take pairs out the gate. She did so awesome. All I had to say was follow em out the gate. Boom, right behind them she'd go and come right back to me. Then she got a little cocky and got kicked right in the chops! Not once, but TWICE! The first time, you could tell it hurt. And hurt bad! I checked her out, no blood, no damage and all her teeth were still there. Tuesday she had a swollen face and bent nose. Today I took her to the V E T. She likes going to the vet. Maybe "like" isn't the right word? How about tolerates? :) He fixes her up and makes her feel better. Luckily she didn't break her nose or jaw or anything else. And all her teeth are still intact and will stay put. They are not loose. Thank goodness. Just bruised. Poor girl! She looks awful. But she will heal. She got some anti inflammatory stuff and muscle relaxers. And no biting cows for at least a week! Maybe she will have learned from this. Naw, she's a heeler! Hard headed, tough, mean and loyal!
Here's her swollen little mug.
There must be fish in the creek! Saw 6 of these Egrets today when we were moving heifers and bulls.
Can you see me?
Here I am.
One of the boys.
Oh yea. Cameron got stung twice in the neck by a wasp! LOL! Not funny. Thank goodness he's not allergic! Does any one else have an unusual number of wasp's this year? We sure do. They are EVERYWHERE!
Thanks for stopping by.
