A question for the men.greenspun.com : LUSENET : Unk's Wild Wild West : One Thread
Last night my husband seemed to have been put through some kind of Macho test by his neighbours...by being asked to assist the vet who was doing a C.section on the neighbour's cow.I might add there were three other farmers present and my SO was the only one who was a fruit farmer !
Have you been put through any tests of fortitude or whatever ?Seems weird to me !

PS.The cow was fine but the calf died at 6am this morning.

Drinking 13 shots of Mexcal right in a row in college. Had to do it, because the other guy did. I never barfed so much in my entire life, before or since.

So sorry Chris to hear about that calf =0(

SO was the only one who was a fruit farmer !
In the western US the term fruit farmer has many meanings. Would you expand on the topic. *<))) Thanks.

My doctor stuck his finger up my butt once, does that count?

Unc, Mine did too the last time I went for a pelvic and I almost slapped the shit out of him!!! Bad enough what WE woman have to go through, then we get THAT started at a certain age. He could have at least warned me!

Just the once, Unk? I would have thought at your age it is a yearly event (grin)

We call that the finger-whammy.

Dang, I know who doc who uses two fingers. He says he does it so he can get a second opinion-LOL! Funny the fellas aren't amused. Go figure.

Some like to go to the doctor to have him/her stick their finger up their butt. It's perverted, but hey, there's lots of perverts around. Ever wonder why you have to wait so long in a doctor's waiting room? Because there's too many people waiting to have the doctor stick his/her finger up their butt! Yes, I believe this is true.

Hey, Unk -- don't worry -- as long as you didn't start bugging him as to when it could be YOUR turn...
-- Eve (email@example.com), April 15, 2001.
Could have been some Macho kind of test. It could have been that your SO appeared to be the strongest, or maybe he had the longest arms, maybe the youngest.
Somehow, I doubt they would ask him to help the Vet just as a macho thing. Your SO should be glad that he was asked to help bring a calf into the world, as now he has helped in the miracle of birth. Granted it was a cow, but it doesn't really matter.
Sorry for the loss of the little calf. I've assisted to still borns, and it isn't always a good ending.
Just my thoughts.

you mean my doctor is supposed to use his finger!?!

Well let me tell ya Chris, I made a call to the Vet late one night cause I got one stuck and couldn't get him out. Bart come boilin in there bout 2 in the mornin drunker than shit. I had the water all heated up and he commenced to start cuttin. Well I'd been hittin the sauce too so bout half thru a C-section that started looking like an S-section she started grippin down real hard and squirted the calf out. He let out a bellar and we hung him over the gate to lung him out. Soon as he got a good grip of air he raised his ears and all was fine. Took twice as much surgical thread to sew her up and we drank coffee the rest of the wee hours till morning.

Bend you must be under 40. Ever hear of a prostate exam? Most doctors don't particularly enjoy it either. Women doctors are nice because they have more slender fingers and don't usually ream you out as hard. Just getting a PSA test isn't sufficient. If you have sex within 24 hours before your blood is drawn it can throw the test off.

I am 50+, female, and I know all about examinations and long waits in the waiting room. I'm convinced there are some people out there who get their jollies from the doctor examining them and vice versa. BTW, there was a Mormon doctor who impregnated several women during pelvic examinations. He finally got caught! And, the women who were his patients went to the same church as him! There's a lot of naive people on this earth!

Had a doctor offer once, and I declined. We were both relieved.

Z, The answer to your question is apples & strawberries.
Boswell - there was an element of farce here too.A bull got out into the yard in the middle of everything & rubbed his head against the drop handle of the feed nut silo..which wasn't locked.Result - one shocked but delighted bull & luckily only 3 ton of nuts to clean up !
The calves are great but you can't get too attached as they are sold on at a young age to Italy. The Italians apparently like their meat very lean so these calves are specially bred.They can be big little critters even new born ..hence the calving problems sometimes with the bull calves.
