Lately we have heard the preg checking is done. Yes, for the forest cows. But then there was the weekend of preg checking the BLM cows. And then the strays that come in need checked. And the other bunch of strays. And the other other bunch. And now it was time the first calf heifers that had been out to pasture near Blackfoot for the fall.
The Rancher called me in one fine afternoon, asking for some help to get the heifers pregged up that night because the weatherman was calling for snow. For some reason they didn't want to work cows in the yucky cold and wind. I always come running when The Rancher asks for help, mostly because I don't want him to think he can do anything with out me (ok really I just love to help and I don't want him to stop asking). Usually I end up giving shots at the front but this time I got to run the back. And I did a great job, if I do say so myself. It didn't leave much time for pictures but I snapped a few before the night was over.
I think that we are really done with the preg checking. Unless some other ornery cows come from who knows where... But until then, we are done!
