... We were standing in dry heat taking in the gorgeousness of it all when we noticed how the lighting over the mountains had changed. This is basically how our conversation went, "Oh! Look at the shadows of the clouds... they're neat on the mountain. Um, wait a minute... clouds over the mountain... hey, is that rain over there... OK it's time to leave now!" A cool breeze quickly ascended on us while we descended the trail (good thing we had only gone 2.5km!), and we met Michel on the ...

... to on my first night here). It was a lovely night and I'm still quite full. I'm forever indebted to Jubie and his family for the way I've been treated whilst here, they will be sorely missed.

We then headed to another farm to check if 6 cows had aborted, and if they had, to take some blood and get it tested for infectious diseases that could cause abortion. It turned out that 3 of the 6 had so we took the blood. We also had 2 bulls to test for venereal diseases so we did that and set off for the feedlot we visited in my first week to re-test some of the bulls that failed the manliness test. We re-tested 6 bulls (their results were ...

... then gave a health check,/vaccination/worming to 6 Bul-Bul puppies (2 girls, 4 boys), all were healthy. We then set off to a dairy farm where we proceeded to do rectal exams (to see if pregnant) on about 100 cows. My arm hurts now.

This afternoon we went bull testing on a lovely farm with wild game. I went for a bit of a walk during the interesting, yet very repetitive bull testing and took in the ...
