Happy Birthday Reuben

One year into his teen years! Such a big help to his father. Reuben has so often been a right hand to his Dad. With farming being right up Ben's alley,he works along side his Dad many hours of each day. This is such good training for teenage boys and I am so grateful that Reuben has this wonderful opportunity. So much can be taught by following and seeing Dad do things.

When it comes to cattle farming Reuben has had lots of experience. Calving season keeps him on his lookout for any problem births. This spring has been super busy for him when we had 14 cows in our herd who decided to have twins. There was lots of action and little calves to get trained to bottle feeding. This was also Reuben's first year that he raised and trained a 4-H calf. It was a wonderful experience for him and he learned alot about training,grooming and feeding his calf and on sale day to be able to lead his calf around the ring.

Reuben we are glad you are in our family. You always have a word of advise in the farming end of the deal. You give Dad peace of mind with your cattle checking abilities.

We pray that you will let God take control of your future and grow to be a Godly man.

Thou therefore,my son,be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. 2 Timothy 2:1
