I generally don't want them to show up. How many of them really know what they are doing? Yelling and screaming doesn't work here.

I get things done better alone than with help.
I wish at times I had someone to run the chute while I push cattle in and load syringes for me, but it's easier on me and the cattle if I just do it myself.
Slow easy and quiet.
It doesn't always work like it should but through attrition I get it done and no one gets stressed

Don't always have to be a big time rancher, sometimes a hobby farmer does some things worth being noticed. December 2008 if anyone cares :pop:

Now let me see, if the chicken ranch in la grange was a hobby place for all the youngsters in the 60's ( oppps that's me ) and we all gathered in the lobby ........: does that make the chicken ranch the first "hobby lobby", but I thought hobby lobby was closed on Sunday... so was the chicken ranch, durn you Marvin Z. Eye witness news?????? Can still picture all the chartered buses in the parking lot . As Archie Bunker would say "those were the days"

So I have a question. I did a little cattle work here at home this afternoon, separating my yearling heifers from the 2-year olds so I can start feeding the yearlings extra. I was wearing jeans and a straw cowboy hat (straw because it was hot), but also Reeboks and a Magellan fishing shirt. I figure the shirt and shoes placed me in the hobby category, but if I'd put spurs on the Redbooks would that have tipped the scales in the other direction?
