sh!t happens..............

Its like the roller coaster is cruising out of control once again..............
I can't get any thing done as I keep having farm distractions/jobs/worries..............
today was a water run and cutting some feed for the cows at another property...........
So many decisions need to be made right now............
as you can see we have heaps of feed.........
even all the shrubby bushes are stripped by the cows............
 
the cows are about to drop calves and it is too hard to feed them on this property so they will have to be moved ASAP where it is easier to feed them and as these are the younger ones we will get rid of some of the older ones to make room...........
look very close under the tree I spotted the tiniest calf I have seen for a long time.........Mr Chooky thinks it may be premy too...........
Seeing if we could get it to stand up..........it is so skinny and tiny not sure how it will go but we left it with mum who came back to it and it had moved before we left............so good luck baby............
My blue chaste tree is flowering beautifully........a nice distraction from hell............
anyone want to buy some weaners..............not sure how you would go in town but we can't buy food for these boys so they will have to go in the hope we can hang onto our girls this time..........remember last year we had to sell the lot..................
Some herefords (red and white) like above and some angus like below............
beautiful babies but sh!tty decisions need to be made.............normally we would sell them in 12 months time..........heaps bigger........lots more money..............
I really hope we are not heading down the same path as last summer but it sure looks like it............
Oh and the heat...........40 tomorrow, 42 Sat, 43 Sun...........
Lucky I am escaping this dirt bowl and seeing the blog girls.........
Have a great weekend.....hope you find a cool spot to hang out in.............
Catch you later
