It has been raining here for the past couple of days and it ain't right. I had plans this weekend but had to settle for almost doing nothing.
I took advantage of some of the down time to do some major cleaning and scrubbing of the house. I love the smell of bleach in the morning.
Another rainy day activity me and the youngest did was get her rabbits all tattooed up and ready for next weeks show.
All I have is this old eighties model tattoo gun that we used on goats way back then. It still works and does a good job.
The tattoo has to legible in the left ear, right side up so it's always good to punch though a piece of paper before the doing the ear just to make sure you are holding the tool right and the letters or numbers are in right.
I trimmed the toothbrush so the bristles were stiffer and would push the ink into the open holes better.
The main reason we have to do this is because if we plan to show them, they have to be marked. Another reason is to identify who is from who.
There you go, a little bit of Animal Husbandry at it's finest
