Kris was planting, but something on the planter broke. He fixed it. Something else broke, and he fixed it. Then something else on the planter broke. It required welding. My dad fixed it. Obviously, there are names for all those parts, but they don't mean much to me.
Today also nine cows had calves. When a cow has a calf, it means you have to separate her from the rest of the cows in the pasture and drive her into the barn to get milked. Sometimes they just don't go easily, and today was one of those days.
They also found out that the cattle had ripped through a bunch of fences in the pasture.
Really, Kris left home at 6am and got home at 10pm and THIS is what people mean when they talk about farming being a lot of work - when it's planting, calving, and cows breaking through fences all at once!
This post could be one of my mom's emails. You know, with the names changed.
