With all this ruckus and excitement of the calving season, I don’t want to neglect to highlight an important part of the whole process – because you need to know our standards for acceptable working conditions on the farm.
You’ve got to have good company in the truck.
This is the best company ever found in a farm truck. Just picked him up off the side of the highway because he looked cute.
If one hand is on the window sill and the other’s on the wheel, you aren’t holding my hand…for real.
I’ll leave my whining country songwriter career on the shelf after today – promise – mostly.
The thing about this guy is he’s not always available when it’s time to check cattle. You gotta have reliable working conditions in the truck.
Because God only knows what the conditions will be like outside your four-wheeled-fortress. Therefore, God created…
He is sweetness caninified. His name is the very essence of good company.
And that’s fine by me. He’s real snuggly.
His mama locks the door for him so he won’t fall out. It’s a good excited-canine-passenger (ECP) procedure.
I would be devastated if anything happened to this geriatric-ish – Heinz 57 – mostly Labrador friend of mine.
I won’t do calving season without him. I’ve convinced myself he’s going to live forever.
My Farmer has yet to contradict me.
Here’s to smart farmers, safe pups and a successful *calving season!
It’s good to be us, isn’t it Buddy bear cub! C’mon and get in the truck. We’ve got to go check cattle!
To the back 40 – and beyond,
Buddy and BoB.
