We made it thru the livestock sale - but tears did fall! My Cowgirl also let herself get dehydrated and the heat took it's toll and we finally had to send her home, which meant her sister had to walk her calf thru the auction as well!
Her Birthday happened to fall on auction day - not the best!
Making Cyclone wear the birthday tiara!
Commiserating with friends!
Walking the green mile!
Waiting her turn and getting a hug from her brother!
Hugs from Dad, where I am pretty sure he whispered in her ear "Suck it up, you don't have a choice!"
Bawling and babbling "I love you Cyclone"!
In the pen during bidding!
The hand-off to Mom, who is now also crying!
(which of course means someone is going to take my pic, I look like crap)
Hugs from friends!
She spent the time in-between her steer and her sisters crying and hugging her steer!
In the pen with her sisters steer!
The hand-off to Mom - but notice Lou is not crying?
We went back in the cattle barn and she tied Shortie up, slapped him on the butt and said
"See ya on the other side of the meat counter Shortie!"
Today was deja-vu, here is what we did a year ago and we did exactly the same thing today!
