We used to do sling loads in the Sea King. Mostly drones, but occasionally cargo. It was usually fun, always tricky, and occasionally a bit, er, risky.
But that was a long time ago.
This week I've been slinging the calf who can't get up on her own.
Today she seems to be working harder to get up on her own, and she seems to be trying to stand and even walk a bit when she's in the sling. But she doesn't have it figured out yet.
I think we may be making progress but it's hard to tell.
I'm beginning to think she's got more of a left-side deficit and a back end deficit, but again, it's hard to tell.
After a week of cool, wet weather it's sunshiny and warm today. The cool and wet are forecast to return tomorrow through Sunday, with perhaps a return to pleasant weather on Memorial Day.
The cold and wet may have prompted a dove to nest on the tractor. I think she gave up on that idea as the nest seems abandoned.
Starting to see a lot of primroses.
And some gooses!
Hope you all are having a fine day.
