Despite wet weather causing postponements to many of our early year scheduled tasks, we're slowly but surely chipping away at those jobs that just have to be done. Fat cattle have been sent to slaughter, today is Day 1 of Embryo Transfer Program No. 3 for this season, recipient females have been preg-tested and the weekend saw us catch up on a little branding.
After yarding cattle early Sunday morning, the rapid onset of heat combined with the anticipation of pancakes, maple syrup and ice-cream caused us to delay branding until the cool of the afternoon.
Besides, we had a birthday to celebrate.
So after pancakes, sponge cakes, milkshakes and even a trip to the pool, it was time for some work.
For sometimes, even birthday girls need to be reminded...
...it's not all about them.
