After what seems like months and years of sub zero weather, weather in the teens and lots of snow, ice, sleet and general uck.....
it warmed up to 48 degrees yesterday. Which really felt like a heat wave.
Tyler has been at Jason's elbow every time he clips on these calves. Wanting to learn how to clip...wanting to know why Jason clips them the way he does.
And Sunday was the day we put a set of clippers in his hands and said "Go to town."
Jessie and I washed and dried Huey and Jason and Tyler got to work. Huey has not been clipped since the middle of October. And we've been growing lots and lots of hair since then on him. I think they took off about 3" and left 2" on him.
While they worked on Huey, we then washed and dried Tank, bedded up the steer pen (again) and started on chores. Tank and Huey are hopefully going to the Beef Expo show in Columbus the middle of March....it's been a nice little break not washing calves every day (or so) but it's time to get back to work....as long as the weather holds.
Tyler is now asking for a set of clippers for his birthday.....I think we've created a monster!
