Despite the stress, heat, and hecticness of this day, I actually really enjoyed it. When Candice(our TA) had us pick a number 1-50 to choose who would be doing the first castration, I immediately talked myself down mentally and told myself that I would rather sit of the sidelines and watch instead of doing it myself. Therefore, I chose the number 5 because I thought it would be unlikely that she chose anything near that number out of 50 total. Lo and behold, I ended up picking the exact same number that Candice was thinking…the universe really does work in mysterious ways. I really believe that some entity was looking out for me this day because I ended up feeling so amazing after the castration was completed. I could have done a much better job with cutting, though, because I did not go deep enough the first time around and had to make another cut which most likely slowed the healing process for that poor piggy. I can only learn from my mistakes, I guess. After the castration and some stressful vaccinations in the first farm, Candice, Danielle, Racheal, Emeline, and I moved over to the next farm. It was honestly so hectic and stressful but I kind of loved it. I felt like I was really doing a good thing by forcing myself to be brave and properly vaccinate as many screaming pigs as I possibly could.
