Let's get weighed!
Well it has been over a week since I've posted. I have been very busy here on the ranch and running errands for our youngest daughter's wedding coming up this Saturday, Oct. 23rd.
A week ago, we weighed our girls, trimmed their nails and did some worming shots. It is all part of the maintenance of the herd. Weighing them gives us an idea if they are maintaining healthy weights. Some of the mammas lose weight from nursing, so we like to make sure we keep them at a healthy weight. We also do a preventive worming in the fall. We need to do the guys next (after the wedding of course). I have posted a few pictures of the catch pen and Enya getting weighed. I can't take pictures while we are doing nails and shots. So you will just have to imagine that. We use our catch pen to work on them. It was another beautiful sunny fall day.
