It keeps this up, I’m gonn’a think it could turn into winter! Maybe a bit better than an inch of fresh and supposed to be more thru’ tomorrow night and the wind is supposed to blow.. like we don’t expect that! 😀 Then on Wednesday it’s supposed to get up into the 40’s and stay there for awhile.. so this could all melt down and life will be peachy!

Chance and Hope and I went into town this afternoon and got a dually one ton pickup to pull the trailers with.. old but a new motor.. needs a few things fixed on so we left it with the mechanic t fix… then we can start hauling hay home…

We got a couple more inches of powder this afternoon… makes the roads a bit slippery. Chance and I ran to the Hills yesterday and looked at hay. Got all we need spoke for.. now, to get it all hauled home!


I ran out to friend in Wyoming today and got a team of Clydes I am going to winter for them. Shamus is the Gelding and Gussie ( Agustina) is the mare.. big. I mean really big! 18 hands, looks like. I can barely see over their backs and can’t see over their withers… I am going to have to build a bench to stand on to harness them!

We got our first snow yesterday. Didn’t amount to much. Another dusting this morning… coldish with a brisk breeze… keeps this up I’m going to think it’s winter!

Merideth and parents still haven’t come home from the hospital.. she’s still a little jaundiced.

Welcome to this crazy wonderful world!

(Brand new daughter, born this afternoon. Tate and Kass are Dad and Mom)

Cindy was using the side grinder with a wire wheel on it to scratch down the splinters on the logs in the house and it got away from here, so I had to run her in to get it stitched up.. here’s the photo’s.. before stitches and after…

Got the cows pregged, went about like I thought.. making plans to survive another year.. it’s a good life if you don’t weaken!

We worked on the house a bit this today. got all the soft in the gable ends.. got snow and cold coming so doing what we can while we can…. I ran the lift and Tate put up board, except for the last few this afternoon and Chance finished up.. while waiting on him I built a couple sets of stilts for Gabe and Lige.. they caught on quick.


Was a beautiful morning, a bit brisk, but calm and everything event well. Thanks Delbert and Dean for the help! Until your better paid!



Sam and I went out this afternoon and moved cows from one pasture to the next, getting them closer to the house to ship on Tuesday. Beautiful day. I fixed some fence this morning, Cindy went along. We will move them closer tomorrow. Supposed to start gathering at 6:30 Tuesday morning.
I found a dead cow, a lease one, she got her back downhill and couldn’t get rolled back. It will kill them, first one I’ve ever seen that I can remember..



Cindy and Lige and I went out this morning and got all the cows moved west then this afternoon, Chance, Lige, Gus and I moved them north into the winter pasture, getting ready for shipping in a couple weeks..
