I Can't Wait!

The only fun I've been having is cooking (I can't believe I even said that). But the good news is that something popped in my back and in my front and I feel way better. Not perfect . . . but way better. I'm going to be back on a horse on Monday if I have to get hoisted up there with a winch. Although I have so much fresh food in the frig now I'll have to work and still cook French to use it all up before it goes bad. I think it might just be short days for a while so I'll have time. I'm going to ride Wilbur, he's the smoothest. Good grief, I can't wait!

Hey, my husband asked me last night if 'those people from the East country sold their horse?' Did ya?

I hadn't peeked at your blog for awhile and it looks like I have missed a lot of activity! I am sure glad you are on the mend after your bull assault. You and your cowboy were both so lucky to have lived to tell the tale! We will not keep a high-headed bull. In addition to selecting bulls for calving ease, weaning weight,carcass traits, etc....disposition is tied for one of the top desired traits. My husband and I also work our cattle without extra help for the most part. We also have times where there is just one of us out there handling cattle. Our cattle have to have good dispostions! If they don't, they end up at the sale barn real quick! You don't want to have cattle that you are afraid to turn your back on for a second! We have one cow right now who has earned a ticket down the road as soon as we ship calves. Last fall she took me on a horse and later the same day my husband. Why we kept her is a mystery to both of us. This week as we were sorting pairs, she took a run at my husband and his horse. He ended up on the ground and thank goodness Badger kept herself between Doug and the cow! Another trip to the chiropractor should have him back in shape. Those of us who have been the target of a cranky bull or cow know the true meaning of being scared enough to "pee your pants"! (Can't believe I wrote that!)

it's such a huge relief when things "pop" back into place, but BE careful ! you still need time to heal and let things get settled

I'll bet you can't wait - so glad you're feeling somewhat better!

That's great to hear. Take it easy the first couple of days and you should be back to full timing by the time you get all that food cooked up. :)

Have a great weekend! :)

That Wilbur is a pretty boy. If you can get ahold of a Professional's Choice back brace, they are great, it will help support your core muscles. They are about 65 US to buy from Jeffers Equine; link on my blog under horse shopping.Or borrow one!
