The girls' get a new home

This year's heifers left for their new home today.  They looked great and I'm sure they will adjust quickly to their new surroundings.

It was a learning experience getting their paperwork ready to cross state lines, but it all came together smoothly. A farm call from the vet earlier this month for their Bangs vaccine and ear tags, their first trailer ride earlier this week to get a health certificate from the vet, and a visit with the brand inspector for their final paperwork.

  FYI... health certificates are good for 30 days, import permit for California (called in at the same time by the vet) is good for 15 days, and a brand inspection is good for 8 days (at least in Oregon). We could have saved a trip to the vet if we had planned the timing a little better, but it was good loading practice for the girls which made this mornings loading easy.

A happy anniversary!

I know it probably wouldn't appeal to some, but I loved spending our 16th wedding anniversary working around our little farm. It was a beautiful sunny day with rain in the forecast. We got the pastures fertilized, barn cleaned, and cows moved. With our crazy busy life of work, kid's sports, hunting and the lost goes on; it was great to spend time together.

Aeromotor Windmill

We finally got the old windmill from my Grandparent's homestead installed on our farm.  My husband had to completely rebuild the inner workings and a new tower, but the rest is original.  My mom and uncle remember it as kids pumping water for their cow trough. 

My dad brought over his versa-lift to hoist it up on the tower, along with help from a few others.
