George, Del’s wife, took some pictures today while we were moving their cows and was nice enough to send them to me. So here’s what we did today. I was riding Pilgrim.
Went over to a neighbors yesterday and helped him bring in his bunch of roping cattle, just before noon. Then we ate a bite and some other neighbors and friends came over and we roped and branded all that needed it. Also gave the calves a shot and wormed them. Today I am going toContinue reading “Neighborin’”
The Middle East: Reporting an Enigma at Warning Signs.
Chance came up and we used the loader tractor instead of the team to get the logs out of the creek. We sure got a lot of good Ash wood drug out. So sad to see how thin the timber on the creek is getting. When I was Chances age there were a lot ofContinue reading “Firewood”
I caught up Ron and Roz and hooked them to the wagon and drove them up west and north yesterday. Checked on the bean I had put out for the cows. They aren’t hitting it very hard, but then they have quite a bit of green grass down low on the crested fields. They areContinue reading “The Team”

Some people just have too much persuasive powers over others and money enough to continue their behavior, for their own good and the good ofContinue reading “a thought”
Why would someone as lazy as me, keep writing and posting things on this blog? When I started I think I was motivated by the newness of it. A way to write a personal letter to as many people who cared to read it. Also a way to generate energy towards the craft of saddleContinue reading “Pondering”
The mares and fillies came in to get a drink this morning so I captured them. Then the rest followed so I caught them also. Mijo was with the mares so I used him to bring the calves in to their feed. I was going to use Patches as I had rode her the dayContinue reading “Mare and colts”
