We just keep getting rains… got an inch the other night than an inch yesterday evening and night and then it rained hard this afternoon… looks like about 2.5 inches in the last couple days.

We had cattle get mixed the other night, heifers and heifer bulls in with the older cows, so Chance and I and 3 runt cowhands, Gabe, Ari and CC went and got them back where they were supposed to be yesterday and got the bulls at least back with the other heifers.. we went out this afternoon, same crew, and got the yearlings sorted from the old cows and back where they belong, got pretty wild and western just driving and sorting as we went.. one of the Hereford bulls was in with them, so when we were about done, Chance and Gabe and CC took the yearlings back and Ari and I went and got the bull and brought him home.. I had been riding Mijo and she had been riding Pard, so we swapped. She didn’t want to do it but I talked her into it… and just as I thought, they got along great and she really liked him.. he has mellowed a lot in his older age.. hard to believe he is 15… she kind of swelled up some when I told her there were men who would give their left arm to get to ride him.. she and he done well.. Gus had been riding him some lately and he really likes him, but he is like a kid in a race car, always going faster than he needs to.

We had some friends and neighbor over last evening for burgers and food and then the kids all shot off their fireworks.. started drizzling as they were getting done…pretty good show.. off to the east we could see someone else shooting off fireworks.. not sure who, quite a ways away… it was a good Independence day celebration…
