Snow is melting and water is running. the dam out east is going over the spillway.. the big dam up west is almost full.. creeks are starting to run, tho’ not all of them, where you can see it.. I imagine some is running under the snow, but where it’s on top, it is mostlyContinue reading “Running water”
Ol’ Sol has been working and we have mud. Wonderful glorious mud! I know, most people don’t like mud, but mud means warmth and snow going away and creeks and dams getting full, so I like mud. Give me a few weeks of it and I probably won’t be so high on it! I saddledContinue reading “Warm and wet”
It finally started snowing about 4 yesterday afternoon.. of course the wind blew… not sure how much we got but ai think most of it blew down south east of us.

No, not real windy, just a lite breeze of 40 plus mph… couldn’t really call it a wind.. of course when it does do that and we have lows, below zero, sure takes lots of feed to keep cattle going, out in it.. our livestock all have protection to get behind, shelter belts and manContinue reading “Windy?”
