My dad, while not a farmer, goes to help the inlaws at their farm every lambing season. Last year he came home after being down there for 3 weeks and said 4 days in one of the ewes gave him a big stomp on the foot because he was trying to turn the lamb. He stayed the extra 2 weeks and a bit, drove 5 hours home, hobbled into work as a carer, and then took the guy he was caring for to a doctors check-up.
There’s something about farmers that just pushes their stoicism over into stubbornness. The junior orthopedic doctor here, I’ve just had a farmer walk into the department two weeks after falling, complaining of pain. Turns out he broke his hip and chose to ignore it until he couldn’t sleep or sit comfortably due to the pain. Not at all surprised to hear your story is about a farmer, that’s crazy!
