we finally took the weaner calves off their mothers last week, a process that has been interrupted a few times because, my goodness, it has kept on raining often enough to throw our plans awry.
The process was pretty quick and painless and didn't take long, helped by the fact that there was nearly 100 old dears not present and accounted for, hiding out in the bushes somewhere (but never fear, they did get found).
Some odd shots from the day, and a little (badly shot) video to show you the sheer noisiness of working in the yards...
Won't be around here much, have a busy week in front of us, and my brothers wedding this weekend, the kids are getting very excited! All of them are in the wedding party...plus three other kids as well. Won't THAT be fun ;-)
See you after we return from the deep south (well, Blackall is deep south for us northerners!)
