V had a good time at her senior prom Friday night It was an all day affair getting ready. Apparently, it takes much more effort than when I was in school. Or maybe I just didn't know better back then. She got the dress a couple of months ago but it needed some alterations. It only took about 3 hours the sew on loose stones, take in side seams and shorten straps and hem it. (I was not with her when she bought it or we would have gotten one that fit to start with) She went for a spray tan the day before, then a manicure and professional hairdo.
J got talked into helping with After Prom 12-5 am. I think he has finally recovered.

We usually sell our billy goat every spring and buy a new one to breed the nannies in the fall. Billy goats are getting expensive so we thought we would try to keep this one over the summer but we don't want him breeding the nannies until the end of November. J caught him a few days ago and put him in the bull lot but apparently that is not goat proof and he got back out. So on to plan B.

Thought I would join up with Friday's Fences again. Thanks for all of the nice comments on last week's fence pictures. I guess it wasn't clear to me at first that the link would be fence pictures every week so I already used most of my good pictures. Anyway, I thought these were good. V took them of her show steers while I was filling their water bucket.

The show steers are temporarily shut out of the part of the barn lot that has the water trough (post for another day). So yesterday I took one of our multipurpose 12 gallon tubs, scrubbed it and cleaned it with bleach, secured it to the fence and filled it with water for them.
A quote from J's ex boss, "They're like a bull in a china shop. What they don't break they s*** on."

I found another blog hop I thought I might try. This one said to post a picture of a fence or through a fence. Apparently, I have an obsession with fences. I found several pictures in my archives. Here are a few.

I went to catch Otoelene and she was laying down. I rubbed on her, sat on her and put the halter on. She still didn't get up but laid over flat. I checked her gum color and heart rate. Everything seemed ok. She sat back up and I pulled on the lead rope. She laid back over.
