So seems like I been missing out on everything that has been going on here except for the ponies, so here's an update. Well Jamaica is home. He is out in the pasture with the mares and happy to be there. Sure loaded good. I asked Jardi to give me a hand and I never needed her, he just walked out of his stall, out of the barn, across the corral and right onto the trailer. Pretty happy with that. I think it is a lot like walking onto a stall, kinda dark, even though the stalls are step down and the trailer was step up, much the same.
And the bulls are home. A couple weeks ago we got a call for the community pasture to pick up our bull there and so Neil pulled all our bulls at home the same day. They were pretty well ready to come home. We also sold two, one who never tested that we kept as a just in case one and one was 7 years old and we never realized but he was fine but that's getting pretty old for a bull.
We got all our hay baled as well as the green feed oats. They are just waiting on John Deere to fix our tractor and bring it back before we can haul them home. Neil tried rigging up a system where his tractor can pull the trailer so he can use it to both load bales in the field and then unload them at home, and it seems to work, but takes a long time driving back and forth.
And the cows (or in this case heifers) are doing good, they sure like hanging around in the slough where the grass is really tall when its warm out.
And last night I got a call from a girl who wanted to come see Dinero. She called last week and asked a bunch of questions and wanted to come down but didn't know when they could. Well their schedules lined up and they came and tried him and took him home. He will be rode in the feedlot by her husband and she will pleasure ride him.
All in all life is progressing and I am not ready for winter but looks like its on its way anyhow.
