Day started bad
Friday, March 26, 2021
I felt it might be a rough day when I went out to my car and had to scrape icy snow off of windshield. 😥
Roads were fine so made it to work on time, and little bit of snow went away. 😃
Then the sick cows came. Mastitis, ketosis and flipped stomach. Ended up with one surgery and lots of treatments.
One of the healthy cows kicked the pipe for the hose to clean the parlor and broke it. Water all over and no water to clean parlor.
Jodie's dad gave her a really bad time about the hospital cows. Not exactly sure what the issue was, but she was in tears! 😥 She works so hard and cares so much about those cows! 🐄
This was all before 9am! I felt bad so I went down to the calf barn to tell Moose about it, and how sad his mama was.
He thought I should go get her some flowers and something chocolate to brighten her day. He is a very smart dog, so I agreed and went to get a pretty bouquet and Hostess cupcakes.
Jodie got to the calf barn just after I got back. She was so happy with Moose's gifts! It did brighten her day.
This evenings chores went much better. Nobody else got sick, although I did find one with the start of a limp, one with a sore spot on her udder and one with a really bad foot. All of them were fine this morning.
We are ready to go back and hoping for better day tomorrow! 💖🐄😃🐄
And of course we always have Moose to love us no matter what!
