(I've actually been getting behind in my blog due to our travels and summer activities. I actually took these pictures two weeks ago.)
It's time to breed Sara again, and we found out that Bickett Genetics will come to Sara instead of her having to go to them. That will traumatize Siobhan less and enable us to save board fees for Sara. Since we know that she is coming into season regularly, we don't need to have her there for ultrasounds. What we do need to have is a way to restrain her for the necessary procedures. What we need is a head gate.
Luckily, our property came with a sturdy cattle chute ready made for a head gate (which had been removed before we bought it) behind the run-in shed in the Lower Pasture.
When we lifted the head gate (about 200 lbs) into position, we discovered that a chunk of concrete used to set the posts was tipping the head gate off kilter. So Herb broke out the pick axe and we leveled the ground.
