Been getting pretty warm, up in the high 80’s to 90’s the last few days. Wind is blowing out of the south and really sup[posed to blow today and tomorrow and all thru’ the night… we doctored a few calves so decided to go ahead and give fall shots and pour them, sooner than we planned. I shoved calves up the chute while Tate and Chance and Hope handled them in the squeeze.. Kelvin handed vaccine guns to Chance and helped him at the head catch. I was tired when we got done. Started at 6:30 in the morning and got done at 6:30 that night. I put the word out i had Kelvin here and we were looking for riding, so went and helped a neighbor work their calves. Might go tomorrow and help another. Yesterday Kelvin and i took a young horse up to Dustin’s for a refresher course then rode up to Crow’s Peak by Spearfish.. we couldn’t get quite to the top, trail just stopped. Cindy and I and Del and Geo hiked it some years back and it was different up there, you could get clear to the top, so don’t know what changed, but it was a tight, steep, rocky area to get a hose turned around.. sure was glad there were only two of us. There was a fire there summer and it burnt quite a few of the trees but not as much of the underbrush as i thought it would.. be interesting to go ride it next year and see what changed.. Kelvin leaves Saturday to go back home.. going to seem odd not having him around..
