This blog site serves as a depo for things (mostly photographs) not posted on my other blog sites. Otherwise, it merely redirects to them.
It's exhausting just looking at those last two photos. I had a cow get hip-locked in a self-catching headgate last summer and I had to cut it apart to get her out, I'd hate to have also had one sideways in the chute at the same time.
That actually didn't turn out to be nearly as much of a project as these photos might suggest. My father in law and brother in law were right on it and got it all sorted out somehow in record time. I just watched from the distant back (thank goodness)! I'll be they had both heifers out in about three minutes or so, a testament to their abilities to say the least.
