My Idea of a Spring Break

Where do I begin… This week I spent all of my time working at home. While most college students spent their spring break on a beach, I spent my moving cows and working with my show cattle. Of course, I would much rather do that than do the same thing for 5 days. Sure one day would be great, but I am perfectly fine where I am!

It also rained A LOT this week. Everything that was dirt and easy to walk on, soon became knee deep mud and we had numerous puddles.

This week was pretty laid back, however in a way, it was busy and it really flew by. My sister, who is a freshman in high school this year, was scheduled to have 4 softball games this week and they all got rained out except for 4 innings on Monday. So I booked my evenings with other things. We started our pig adventure on Thursday. We went to Thompson, Mo and picked out a couple potential show prospects. We all became pretty excited for pig showing season!

Saturday was our big day of working cows. I wish I had some pictures to show you, but I left my phone in the truck. I figured this was a wise decision considering I was on my horse, getting cows up, and messing around in the mud. I also lost my boot a couple of times in the mud, but I recovered. We rallied up cow calf pairs and moved them closer to make it more convenient. This is so the cows can be artificially inseminated this spring so they can have another calf crop.

This coming weekend, we are kind of switching gears from the mud to a cattle show. This is not quite as “messy”. Or however you may take it. We are traveling to Nevada, Mo and it should be an exciting time as always!

I wouldn’t change my spring break for anything. I had fun spending time with my friends and family, working in the mud, and riding my horse! Maybe some time in the next three years I will travel to the beach on a spring break, but until then I will continue to live the farm life.
