The End

Guess what everyone! Vet school is OVER! It's been a week since my last day of class and I still can't believe it. And, REAL LIFE is coming quick! I start my new job on May 24th! HOWEVER, this weekend my cousin wants me to preg check 30 cows for him. He said, "well you're a vet aren't ya!"

I'm still waiting for the magic switch that turns me into a real vet and not a scared 4th year.
Hasn't happened yet.

Just in case you don't know much about preg checking cows, let me explain it to ya.

Doing it is actually realll simple.

And reallly rectal.


Let's just say you put the north-bound end of your arm into the south-bound end of a cow.


And you feel for the baby.

Doesn't sound too hard right??

Where it gets tricky is when you have a cow that's not very far along in her pregnancy, because it feels similar to an "open" or not pregnant cow. At least to me it feels similar.

But I'm just a young'n. The first 1000 head don't count, they say.

The trip here is that farmers usually sell "open" cows and want to keep pregos. So you better be right.


My cuz said that most of his cows should be pretty far along so hopefully I should be able to feel the calves . Either way, keep your fingers crossed for me and send one up to the big man that I don't let him down!!
