Farm Girl Friday #17 Cows & their Lady Parts
Using my UTV, I pour some feed out of my bin that sits in the bed and get the cows gathered together so I look at them during calving season. I ensure none are missing, then look and see who is going to calve next, all the while, staying safe in my Ranger!

Farm Girl Friday #7 Redneck Girl!
Looking at our weather forecast for the past week in Missouri, I wanted to show the drastic changes we have. Sunny & 70 degrees, to massive flooding to freezing temps within days of each other. These are typical days on the farm we must adapt to because the livestock must still be fed. This is also a typical day for this redneck girl. There is a certain amount of walking I cannot escape but I try to maneuver equipment and a pattern to minimize it as much as possible to ease the pain in my lower legs. No matter, I always enjoy myself!

Orphaned Calf Sucking Bottle
each time we bring a baby home we must get it to drink from a bottle, but it usually involves a chase or wrestling match. Today's matches were all off camera, but I finally got him to drink and he wore this woman out!

Anytime a horse receives an injury you try to prevent proud flesh from growing. We did not catch this injury and he had some already growing, quite a bit actually. Taking him to the vet to get it removed has resulted in a month of cleaning and bandaging it for him until it can heal.

Big bull calfs who won't get up and I have to lift out of ditches just do not work well with my joint fusions! I lose my balance constantly and have very little stamina due to my injuries. This is why I take so many breaks during the day while farming. But I LOVE it!

Farm Girl Friday #75 What to do when a bull won't come up to eat
Well, this guy has gotten his butt whooped enough that he refuses to come up to eat. He needs to put his weight back on and regain his strength so we can put him back out with the cows in a couple of months. So now he's ever so grateful but will be a bit spoiled as I am pan feeding him away from the others. But by darn, he's eating great!

Due to my lower leg injuries, horse back riding has been difficult the last 7 years. This is especially true of my right lower leg as it was crushed in a car crash.

Farm Girl Friday #62 Attention Seeking Sim Angus Bull
We've had this young bull for about 3-4 months. He's under two years old. I've never had a bull that loves his head scratched like this one. Most of them don't want to be touched especially their heads. Sometimes he even leans into the scratch like my dogs do. I'm wondering if the original owners who raised him, worked with him some or if this is his natural nature. I'll let ya know.

Farm Girl Friday #79 My bull calf, Steve & Why I consciously won't sell him.
Steve here is super small compared to our other calf's. He still hasn't filled out and I cannot consciously sell him wondering if he'll even make it. He's having a hard time breathing while sucking the bottle so I don't know if he's aspirated at some point or if we damaged his esophagus when we had to "tube" him. He's just as vocal as his Daddy, but I wish he'd hurry up and take a bottle at the same time as his room mate here.

These shock or vibration absorbing gloves were recommended to me by AgrAbility and Vocational Rehab to help as I drive the tractor for many hours a day. They absorb much of the vibration from the steering wheel which would travel throughout my body causing the aches from my traumatic arthritis to go into full throttle. I am excited to tell you that these do indeed work!
