Day 119 Cattle Herding

We took a quick, surprise trip to see my folks today!  We didn't call.  We just showed up!
And papa John was "playing cowboy!'  
Meaning, he was separating the momma's from their babies.  NOOOOOBODY was happy!
Bawling and crying everywhere!  I kinda felt for them! 
When we pulled up papa had just pulled one trailer load out of the gate and was ruuuuuuuning to close the gate behind him before the momma's came after HIM!
Those babies got unloaded and then we went and helped him on the Gator to wrangle up two more babies.  But because it was easier...we took a momma with us too!
Once we got back home with them (only 3 this time) we had to get the momma out of the pen from the calves!  We did it on the first try!  I was rather proud of us! I told Dusty that "The Pioneer Woman" has nothing on me! her own show! But we had fun!

Hannalee was in the back of the gator...holding her hands over her ears!
HATED the sound of all the baby calves crying for their mommas.  SHE felt sorry for them! :)

Isaiah 30:23
"He will also send you rain for the seed you
sow in the ground, and the food that comes from the land will be rich and plentiful.
In that day, your cattle will graze in broad meadows."  
sounds like heaven to a farmer I'd think!  

Love you, daddy!

THIS is the very small version of what was in the trailer!!! And not happy!!! :)
