Working cattle.

So, yesterday I worked cattle. Yeah…. Fun! No, it really is a lot of fun! But kind of tiring. I helped this same person work cattle on Wednesday too, but he had two loads then. There were about 150 cattle on Wednesday, but yesterday (Saturday the 21st) there were 300. It took from 8:00 AM until 3:00ish PM. I just gave them one shot in front of the shoulder, and kept them coming into the chute when they didn’t want to. My Grandad was also there, and he branded them, checked to make sure they were steers (there was one bull we castrated), sprayed them with some antibacterial stuff, and if they had horns we De-horned them. There were quite a few we had to dehorn yesterday, but only one to castrate. I held the tail up while he castrated it! we took one break after about 200 were done, but that’s it. The vaccine I gave them needed to be refilled for every 50 cattle, so Grandad showed me how to do that, and when I saw that it was drawing air out of the bottle I would put on a new one! 🙂 Anyhoo, I thought I’d tell you, in case you ever wondered what goes on in working cattle! If you didn’t already know. Sorry for the short post, I hope you enjoyed!!

My Pigs!

Hey guys! This is going to be a short, picture-less post because – after all – it is 9:16 PM and I don’t have a ton of time. I wanted to give you guys and update on my pigs though! 😀 I’m sorry it’s been so long since I’ve posted (I’ve been saying that a lot, haven’t I?) but…here I am! 😉 Haha! Well, my pigs are doing GREAT! Hamilton had been a bit cranky, but he’s been better lately! I figured out that I can actually LET THE PIGS OUT OF THEIR PEN, and they won’t run away!!!! They run around and exercise and it’s SO cute! Then if I call them, or shake their food around, they’ll come running back! Or if I run around, they’ll follow me! They can’t go very fast…but they try. 😉 😀 I was sick yesterday, so I wasn’t able to go do their chores, but today, when I let them out, Hammy wouldn’t even go outside until I did! He wanted me to pet on him. It was so sweet! They’re both so cute. And with all the rain recently, Binky is an adorable muddy mess when I go in the pen, because she’s been rooting in the mud. I tend to call them “Hami-ton” (more of a babyish way to say it) and “Binky-Bo” Sooo…yeah! I love them though. Even if Hammy has been kinda…cranky. :/ I’m so very glad I got them! I don’t know if Binky is Pregnant, I’m sure hoping, but like I said, I don’t know. They have gotten multiple new folds of chub (each one that they’re very proud of..) and aren’t QUITE as cute as they were in their younger stages. They’re still quite adorable to me though! You’ll see when I get some pictures up. The computer has been odd lately, so it’s been a few months since I’ve uploaded any new pictures. I guess that’s why having a 64 GB card comes in handy! 🙂 Haha! Anyways, I thought I would tell you about my pigs. They’re doing GREAT, and I love them very much! I can’t WAIT until Binky has her babies! I sure hope I can find good owners for them!!! See you guys later!

If \ A Discussion Post

That’s all I have to ask you: if.

Actually, no, it’s not. I have a question for you girls, and I have a challenge.

Here’s my question:

IF you were to DIE TODAY, WHERE do you THINK you would go?

WRITE YOUR ANSWER TO ^THAT^ QUESTION DOWN BEFORE FINISHING THIS POST. You might wanna get a pen and paper or pull up your notes app on your phone cause you’re gonna need to write A LOT of things down.

Okay. See those capitalized words in the question? Those are important. Let’s discuss them one by one.

IF.

There’s not too much to discuss IF because we all know what it means. So, that means that you’re probably not going to die today, but IF you were…

DIE.

That is a strong, powerful and sometimes scary word; DIE.
Here’s a good question for you to write down:

Are you scared…

Five years ago from today, a terrible accident happened. Five years ago from today, a miracle happened. Guiney, my sister’s dog, died and came back to life. But I’m not here to tell you about that night. I’m not here to tell you about five years ago. I’m here to tell you that at the beginning of this year, I had different thoughts about things. I didn’t have the respect for certain things like I do now, such as how much my mom and dad do to keep things running around here. And how little I did. I’ve been so busy the past few years pouting, thinking of myself, that I don’t realize much about others. I’ve realized this year that I want to make a difference, and I can. This year, I’ve not only become older, but I feel like I’ve gained more responsibility, and gotten at least a tad bit more mature. Starting the year with so many baby animals, having to have more responsibility with pups running around everywhere, along with more summer cattle jobs, and an amazing October where I got my first two pigs at the fair. Shadowing a vet and filling out some possible information of my future with college. This year has been such a good year, one so full of so many new experiences, and new friends. And as the days keep coming, and I keep living, I hope that I will take time to notice the people around me, and help those who need help, comfort the ones who need comforted, and be a good influence on everybody I’m around. I want God to lead me in the ways of righteousness, and help me to be kind to everyone I’m around. I want Jesus to take me down the path I need to go. And I want to spread the good news of Jesus Christ to everybody. So why am I writing this? I guess I just wanted to tell you that you always have to shine for God. And no matter what, after every sunset, there is a sunrise. And after every sunrise, another sunset. When the sun stops shining, the moon continues. Sometimes there will be dark nights, but if you keep watching, the light will shine.

I have to get back to tonight now. To our yummy snacks, happy movies.. or possibly sad… and have a great night. You guys have a great 2017. Happy new year!
