Tired Farmer’s Wife

I asked my best friend and helpmate (a lot of you know her as Janie, my wife,) to pose for this photo after we had just completed a major relocation of a group of cattle.  Other demands of the farm had required our attention earlier in the day, so we didn’t get to start the project until 5:00 pm. 
The move required setting up an alley way of tape and twine fencing over 1000 feet in length to get the cattle from where they were to where they needed to be.  Then their water tubs and mineral tubs had to be relocated and filled.  Then all the tape and twine had to be picked up and returned to where they are kept for future use.  We finished up a little after 8:00 pm which gave us a some daylight left to water all the other animals on the farm.  It was after 9:00 and dark before we got into the house.  No wonder she was tired.  Thank God she was there.
