Kurt got to do the dirty work and dehorn them. I helped move the calves back to their pens. I am so helpful! The extra work in the barn is not my thing. I'd rather be vacuuming, mopping, folding laundry, etc. My extra time in the barn means less Meghan time. I have complained to Kurt that he gets to come in the house and do whatever he pleases and I have work to do. I think it finally sunk in because he emptied the dishwasher and put the dishes away for me. Yesterday he cleaned the bathtub and shower. I can't complain too much, but sometimes a girl needs to whine a little.

Today we needed to picture four calves. It's not a big deal and it does not take long, but we have been putting this off for about a month. It is a matter of doing it because it is something extra. Oh and the best (I mean worst) part of picture day is the calves are dehorned. We have to get a picture of the calves for identification purposes. The picture is sent in with the application for registration with the Holstein Association.
