Branding, that is. Started in pretty good season but it was 7:30 when we got done. Just a lot of fiddling around here and there. One of them days. Got a small one tomorrow.
Another good one. When we got home Cindy wanted to go up and look at the mares as she said we had another foal. So we did and Suzy had a colt. So two fillies and a colt. I guess I can live with that. Too bad I didn’t want all these future broodmares! HeresContinue reading “Another branding”
Counting ours, which I shouldn’t. We were supposed to brand yesterday down in the breaks but we got a rain Saturday night so they pushed it back to Friday, if we can find enough help. They always ask me to find the crew and I am still short a couple of people. Too many differentContinue reading “12th branding”

Need to sort some heifers out of the steers and steers out of the heifers. Kids are coming on Sunday and we will brand our little bunch. ThenContinue reading “Another branding”
Here’s what a hard working, little less ancey, tired but still has a lot of gas, 4 year old colt, looks like. He’s sure a travelin’ booger. Wants to be cowy. Yup, I like him! But he ain’t for kids. Yet! 🙂
Went well. Chance and I got there early. Got kind of warm and hardly a breeze where we did them. Cindy and I drove up thru’ the heifers and I used the crossbow to doctor a couple. Need to go up this afternoon and do more, if I get home in time. I am goingContinue reading “9th branding”
Had a great time on the Sheridan trip. A jolly group of traveling companions and I giggled and laughed all the way out there and back. Went to a branding yesterday. I’ve lost count of which one it was. Another today and then go help a guy sort cattle to ship to summer pasture tomorrow.Continue reading “5/17/09”
Taken a picture of a tree bent half way over, from the wind. She really really blew today! Gusts up in the 50’s I guess. Sure glad there wasn’t a foot or two of snow for it to play with! Another branding tomorrow and then on Friday I am headed to Sheridan for the bigContinue reading “I should have…”
