These two pictures were taken yesterday morning when we headed out to feed the cows. Foggy and cold with just a skiff of snow left.
Today was absolutely gorgeous! So, today was the day we decided to deep clean the barn. We use this barn for every thing! From branding to a hospital for sick animals. We deep clean at least twice a year. Pressure washing, changing light bulbs, cleaning the waters etc.
When we got to the heifer lot we were greeted by this beautiful sight!
There are 17 heifers that are 1 1/2 months early thanks to a special little bull who wanted to get his job done a little early! UGH! No competition I guess.
Cleaning the barn. The "old guy" pressure washing the deck along the lead up alley into the chute.
Looking down the lead up alley into the chute. Clean as a whistle!
The pens we put cows and their babies in when they need some extra TLC.
There is NO EXCUSE to giving the wrong dosage off medication! :) This is on the inside of the door in the tack room/medicine room.
We will be putting these shoes on Leo and Junior. They have borrium put on the heels and toes. Think of them as cleats. Called sharp shoes. They grip the ice so they don't slip and slide around and you can get a cow to the barn safely.
I can't imagine even thinking of putting sharp shoes on when we had a temp of almost 50* today!
Every one gotta help today! We are learning to be good girls. Two on the hay bale, Spook trying to pull her off! ha ha!
The moon rising over the barn.
Thanks for stopping by.
