We went to the auction today. The plan was for geese and ducklings, but we were late getting started and completely missed the small stuff. But did I come home empty handed? No, of course not. I took the boys with me. The younger three. #1 is still in school. But three is enough.
There was a horse there.
At any rate, when she came up for sale it was me versus the meat buyer. She should be here some time tonight. Let the Knightmare begin.
Then there was this odd looking little calf. My sale slip claims he's a holstein. I don't think he's a pure bred, but who knows.
$45 worth of beef. $60 for milk replacer. With a little luck and some patience, it should be well worth the investment. I haven't decided between Evil Kneivel and Toothless. Toothless is from the movie 'How To Train Your Dragon', as is Knightmare, so fits the theme for this year. His personality so far though, is screaming out Evil Kneivel. We had to chase him down and corner him to feed him his first bottle.
I needed something to do while #1 & #2 were at camp... lol
