Got the extra screws we needed and Chance got them in the new windbreak today. So it’s done.. 10 foot high, 96 feet long on each wing… got a guy coming with a scraper to work on a dirt windbreak I started years ago… hopefully he can get it built up and shaped up so it works even better. Seems to me if you make it right, out of dirt, it should last almost forever… might do some other odd jobs while we got him here… we found prairie dogs and they are smart and Chance has forgot how to shoot evidently.. he’s cussing himself because he keeps missing and he’s only shooting about 350 yards! 😀 LOL

Got up in the 70’s today. I chinked on the small places that needed it on the outside of the house yesterday. Still got some to do on the inside but it’s hard on my hands.. still got to get it done. We got a tank installed this afternoon, if the cement holds and doesn’t blow out in the bottom. It’s about 12 foot across and real shallow where the water line is, so we couldn’t just pour cement flat but had to dip down where the water inlet is and float so it is less likely to freeze up in cold weather… hopefully it works and all we will have to do is finish filling it up. We may put a top on it and insulate it for a winter tank. Sets just north of the new house. I had a big cement ring to set around the float and over flow pipe. When I went to tip it over it busted.. sorry cement in it evidently so I will have to get a new one of those… hope this nice weather holds for awhile.. looked at the cattle yesterday and didn’t find any sick calves. I always worry about them when we get these warm days and cool nights… wish the market would perk up. We are supposed to go with the bulk of the rest of them in a few weeks but think we will hold off awhile.. market keeps wanting to go down so we need as many pounds as we can get on them…. got good feed for them and the cows are in good shape, so keep them on awhile.. most of these were born after the first of May, so they really aren’t that old…
