Peek into a busy morning of chores

We are camping this week, so everyone has to get up early, stumble, yawning to the car and drive home for chores.

Asleep and not wanting to get up.

The drive is quick, only 20 minutes.

The calves and steer all need to be haltered for grain and supplements.  We halter them so they are used to being tied at fair.

All lined up in the barn

They don’t mind being haltered.  They usually just lay down and sleep.   They stay tied for about 45 minutes.

Amandas steer just isn't filling out like we wanted despite our efforts so he gets extra corn.

The hogs need cleaned and fed.

These girls can get quite messy overnight, jeter they are getting brushed.

See the wagon at the gate? The dreaded manure wagon that gets emptied twice a day in the hay field behind the house.

Of course the dog wants fed.

And the cat wants attention.

Naughty Fluffy scratching the barn

The garden needs watered and zucchini harvested.

Finally, untie the steer and drive back to the park.  But at least there is a  river and a pool awaiting  hard working kids.
