Spring on the Farm

This spring we have had three more calves of which one is a heifer and two are bull calves. For the heifer it is shots and a tatoo. For the bull calves it is shots and the testicle rodeo. An elastic the size of a cherrio is placed on their scrotum which restricts the flow of blood to the testicles resulting in castration. Ouch!

Pond Hockey

Playing Pond Hockey is something truly "Canadian". I thought this would be a good addition to my blog to mark the end of winter and he beginning of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
I am happy to see the end of winter and I made sure to pick up the pucks and the net as they will not float over the summer.
