As Tom Russel sings…..
Tonight we ride! We saddled up after the moon came up and made a little peaser out west and north. Checked on a couple tanks and had a nice moonlight ride. Windy and warm, but a nice ride. Not many get to do that.
We went to war
Kelvin rode the Beav and I rode Woody. We took along the Aussie whip and after we found the heifer I let her know just what a whip could do. She seemed somewhat impressed but still had to test us. She was in a pasture about 2 miles long by a mile wide and weContinue reading “We went to war”
Hotter than Hades!
Got up over 100 today. Kelvin and I rode down south to the next door neighboring pasture and failed in our attempt to bring back a strayed heifer. Dumb little rip wouldn’t drive lead or drag worth a darn. Perhaps with the right application of some braided kangaroo hide tomorrow we will change her mindContinue reading “Hotter than Hades!”

the reproduction saddle that is. It is setting in the yard, letting oil soak in. we used some stain on it to try and make it look older. It does, from a distance, but not so much, up close.

Last night I had some welts coming on in different area’s of my body, so I took some anti itch pills I had gotten from a Doctor. I am also taking Allegra once a day. The bumps were still there this morning, some reaction I can’t pin down I have been fighting on and offContinue reading “Dang….”
Me and the boys
Moved the squeeze chute back into the corral and then dug all the oily gravel out of the shed and replaced it with clean new gravel. There was extra left so we dumped it into the holes in the yard so now we can have new holes! Sure wish I could flatten them out better,Continue reading “Me and the boys”
