I'm a vet, not a cow!

Tonight I had this terrible dream and I just need to share it, because I wake up laughing so hard that I almost couldn't breathe!

I work with Holstein cows and since we're dealing with these milk-producing factories, these animals have big reproductive issues. One of them is related with the metabolic clearance rate of progesterone, a hormone that is vital to pregnancy. Since Holstein cows have this accelerated metabolism (a consequence of their high milk production), the half life of progesterone is very short, leading to low plasma concentrations of this hormone. Low plasma concentrations of progesterone cause other problems as double ovulation (which is a nightmare because cows pregnant with twins will ALWAYS have problems to give birth) among other things.

So I dreamed I was pregnant with twins. Because I had low progesterone. Then I had a double ovulation and BAM! I was pregnant with a girl and a boy. Best part: the girl was a freemartin. EVEN BETTER: the dad was my teacher.

I don't know, but this time I may really be going insane.

P.S.: How much milk do you think I was producing? 50 kg? 60 kg??

Sounds more like a nightmare than a dream. You must have been pretty relieved when you realized it was only a dream. Wow!

Really crazy dream. You have wide imagination that allowed your brain produce so irrational image. Or maybe your work stresses you and during sleep that comes out.

I have once had similar dream-nightmare. I was a camel and was whining about the water in my hump was too heavy Smile. At the end I realised that nobody understands what am I talking about - I was a camel and tried to communicate with humans. The weird was that I actually knew that camels don't gold water but fat in their humps. Of course, I was sacred of fact that I won't be able to talk to anyone anymore and woke up sweated Very Happy.

hmmmm... Dreams speak of our heart's innermost desires. You have to chase your true happiness Vanilla. That's what I believe you should do. Very Happy

I like dream stories because I haven't have those for a long time, from what I remember. I can't even remember my last dream.

I couldn't help but laugh! The whole thing is so absurd that the natural thing to do is laugh like everything was a whole Monty Python's sketch!

My work is stressing me, yes. But I don't understand! Why a camel? Do you live in a desert? Razz

My true happiness is TO BE A COW? Or to have kids? Or to have a baby with my insane teacher? I think that being a cow is the best in these options... Confused

I don't drink milk... Which is weird since I work with milk factories (aka Holstein cows). I need to stop working...
