Wordy Wednesday: Bringing the Cows Home

By July 20, 2011 , , , , ,

Ever since I was 16 years old, I've been pulling a truck n' trailer to cattle and horse shows. Who ever said girls can't drive a big ol' farm truck, too! I just love the looks I get on the highway when drivers take a doubletake when they realize it's a chick driving that rig!

Picture it now - I've got my J.Lo shades on (that's what Big D calls em), baseball cap, jeans, Justin boots, a little foundation, blush and mascara (cause I gotta keep it fabulous!) behind the wheel of a one-ton diesel Dodge for a day-trip hauling cattle between my family's farm in Ohio and then back to our farm in Indiana.

No doubt, it was a long, hot (did I mention it was hot, I mean scorching!) day yesterday, but it couldn't have gone any smoothier. Trucked one of my milk cows that just had a baby down to my friend's farm who milks my cows and then brought my show calves back to the home farm ... all. by. myself. Yes, I rocked it just a little!

Rig ready to roll - let's put the hamma down! Copy that?!
Ok, I'm sorry I couldn't help myself - I think we need a little "Convoy" interlude in Wordy Wednesday ....


Four heifers and one big ol' momma cow loaded!

Dad carried the newborn baby to the trailer - she was so cute I wanted her to ride in the cab with me! By the way, this little sweetie needs a name that starts with a "C." Got any suggestions?
Gated the baby off so her momma wouldn't smoosh her.
If you look close (on the right - next to the W) you can see it says 104 degrees F. SO FLIPPING HOT!!!
Got my new babies home just before dark!
