My little brother loved the “Calvin and Hobbes” cartoon. There was one cartoon where Calvin is holding his breath, and then comes up for air with an “EEEEeeep!”.
Eeep! I’m coming up for air!
It’s been a busy couple weeks. The tractor is fixed. The feed pickup is FINALLY fixed (after the wrong part was shipped from PA). Newt has brandings nearly every morning, Mom and Dad branded (we got up at 4:15 am to leave in time), I’m cooking and freezing meals for our branding while work has started getting busy, the heifers have started MGA pellets and will soon be AIed, we haven’t had any rain and it looks like some cows will need to be sold.
The first trigger point will be the Corriente cows with the Corriente calves. The cute ones.
I just hope they will be the last ones. If we have to sell all our cows, I wonder if we can afford to get back into the cattle business. Can we afford an empty ranch that long?
