The kids got out and helped Tim put eartags in the calves this morning.
Oh and they were a big help! They helped Tim get the calves cornered into a couple of panels. Middle child assisted in loading the tagging gun. She has serious dreams of following in her dad's footsteps to be a veterinarian someday.
Ta-da! "Look Ma, I got my ear pierced!"
(Momma bawling in the background)
"I always knew he was the black sheep...errrr, I mean rebel in the family!"
Tim had to play cowboy to catch our smallest and newest calf, Bingo.
Catching her was pretty easy, but keepin Mama at a safe distance was another thing altogether!
"Watch out Tim!"
And finally, Bingo is tagged.
"Momma, that was a bit brutal."
"Yes, I know Honey, there are plenty of hoops to jump through in life, just wait...I heard the man say that he would be castrating calves next month."
And Bandito watched the whole thing while enjoying the Oklahoma early morning sunshine!
Our week has started off productively, I hope yours has too!
