Clipping the Heifers

In preparation for the Dutchess County Fair next week, Becca and I started clipping the heifers for the show ring.

Cowdog, cowgirl...

...and their helpers.

The cow catching crew.

Walking the cows...

...up the lane to the barn.

Moses was just a little upset that we were utilizing his pen to shave the heifers.

Starting off.

Greasing up the clippers.

Onto the legs and making sure to stay clear of those swift Ayrshire kicks.

And the finished product. One-third complete. Four more heifers to go!
