even experianced vets don't get it right 100% of the time. It almost seems more an art then a science. The vet we use will give me a number of days that he thinks she is bred. He;s normally within 5-7 days. A couple of other vets that other folks have used are lucky to get within 2 weeks and still are only accurate if she's bred or not around 95% of the time. Of course we're lucky that our vet spent a number of years at MARC working in the reproduction program.

The cold weather tonight must have me off. It's actually dropped clear into the 70's tonight.

We're looking for a "cool" front this evening or tomorrow. And our weatherman is saying 90% chance of rain Friday and Saturday. That will be a nice break and we sure need the rain. It's dry, dry, dry...

are predicting the same for us. But they did last week-end too and it stayed hot. Pastures have burned up, clover leaves are falling off, lespedeza sprouted and burned up. We did get a foot of desert rain yesterday. That's one drop every 12 inches.

I know what you mean about desert rain. It rained so hard here for about two minutes. If you got hit by a drop it cut like a knife, but they were about a foot apart and hitting the ground so hard they raised a huge cloud of dust.

When it was over, the dirt was not wet, save for the little dust balls that you could roll across the dirt, or step on to expose some moisture.
