Wash Day

The terminal steer show is next week but the neighboring county is having a show tomorrow. Counting our 4 there should be 9 at the show. We thought we would go ahead a wash them this afternoon. The weather was perfect, 80 degrees and sunny.
The biggest problem is that we don't have running water at the barn so we had to lead all of the animals up to the house. Even though the horses live with cattle they seemed very confused that we were leading them. They started trotting around like Arabians and ran off.
I think they all enjoyed the bath.
V worked hard on scrubbing hers.
There's a heifer show also, so she gets a bath too. E was on a 3 day school trip to Washington D.C. so she missed out on all of the fun. J and I worked on her steers. I'm sure she will be in good spirits at the show tomorrow after not having any sleep for 3 nights.
Hope they are not too dirty in the morning.
