Looks like Rosie will be having her calf in the next 24 hrs! Very excited!
I sure am glad to have Richie around. (Have I ever mentioned how handy it is to be married to a handyman? :-)
It's a good idea to give dairy cows a tube of cal-mag-co supplement before calving, it helps prevent milk fever. We were prepared with a few tubes of this stuff, but as it turns out, the tubes don't work in a standard caulking gun. Richie called Dell's to see if they had the right sized gun. The clueless guy said he thought that maybe they did, but since they didn't have any more tubes left he couldn't test to see if the gun was really the right size. Mason gave Richie a ride to Dell's Farm Store to see what they've got. They did NOT have the right gadget.
SO...they hop over to the hardware store and buy a caulking gun and some washers. And what does Richie do? Fashion a perfect gun for feeding the supplement. Ha. Who needs Dell's when you've got a Richie?
