The Worst Day in the Life of a Calf--Boulder Roundup

This morning, Liz and I took Gentry to the Boulder Roundup--an annual event where the spring-born calves are wrestled to the ground, castrated, vacinated and branded--all within a couple of minutes. Life can only get better after a day like today. Little wonder that cattle seem to be so contented grazing grass on the hillside. Life got very good after the Boulder Roundup. Mostly those who do the calf-wrestling are teenagers but it is open to all and this year, John Lamb, his son-in-law, Brian and a church-planting friend, Mike, all got in the arena. It's quite a scene and a rustle of activity wherever one can see.

Good sitting at the feet of the master yesterday. I knew from the past not to try to take copious notes because I could ask for the powerpoint in email... which I am doing.
