Bath Day

Tonight is the steers last night at the 4Rs.  Tuesday they head  for the check in then show on Wednesday.
 So today was bath day.  This will be the first of about 3 baths they will get before the show.  We hauled them from the old barn lot to the new barn because we have running water here now.
 Dawn dish detergent does wonders at removing dirt and grime.
 It's important to rinse all the soap out so they don't get itchy and roll around in the mud again.
J helps with the cattle projects and I do the horse ones.  Don't let his complaining fool you, I think he secretly enjoys it still.

I'm always amazed at how those big steers put up with all the fussing...the baths, the brushing, etc. You can tell they've been worked with a lot. Hope the show goes well!

Dawn soap, huh? I'll have to put that in my memory bank for next year. Thanks for all your posts on the steers. The kids are picking up pointers. I hope you do well in your show. Can't wait to hear the results!
