It was a grand day for farming

I haven’t suffered one of then headache’s of any sort all day today. Lawd, It were a feel good day.
I spent most the day up at the barn doing my part with inoculating and worming, the cows up there, a bull what got stuck in the squeeze chute, a couple heifers and 4H club calves (steers).
We had a time getting the bull out (3 1/2 yrs old and big). Should-a taken picture only no time. When plan A failed to work, I went for plan B tools which didn't work either. Then having to go for still more tools for plan C. When I got back plan B had worked in my absence. I missed seeing that act. Drat! Sure glad he was (is) a calm bull (Shorthorn) for the fix he had gotten himself into.
Was near sundown before I got o my ladies hay. Was alright. They’d done one swell job cleaning everything I had given them the last couple days. That is important this winter. It’s going to be tough enough making the last longer than the hay we’ve got, let alone wasting any.
A good day’s work outside, I was ravenous when I came in after my chores. Sure glad we’d gotten the snow he had on the ground it making it easier my seeing past sundown.
Supper was sooooo goooood. Venison extra tasty my knowing exactly where the free loader had been having eaten my corn and hay.
