They held off until after dinner. Went well other than a young lady got bucked off and they called the ambulance to take her in for doctors care.She didn’t break any bones, just bruised her up. She’s tuff, she will heal quick! After her and her husband left, they oldest son was roping and draggingContinue reading “Another branding”
Got better than an inch of rain last night. The lying rain gauge said 2 inches, but there was a flat sided cake pan setting on the steps and it measures an inch with a ruler. Guess I need to throw the gauge away. It came from a so-so bank I don’t use, so youContinue reading “Spring”
This morning Pilgrim came into the corral while I was out there so I caught him and went and moved all but one pair, back across the road to the north, in preparation of yearlings coming in on Monday. It was real nice, but the wind blew and built all day. It didn’t take asContinue reading “Tradin’”

Got up in the 50’s and we had a little wind, but real nice. Went and rebuilt one of the creek crossings then moved the cows across the road into the 80 this afternoon. I’d rode Mijo around the fence in the morning and checked fences and shut gates. Not too bad of fence forContinue reading “Another nice day”
Alleluia! He has risen! Happy and blessed Easter tidings to all!
Meadowlarks and robins serenading me along with the baritone and bass notes of the frogs and Canadian geese on the nearby pond, chiming in. A nodding, bobbing headed, two rein colt cautiously clicks the chirping cricket in the silver mounted spade bit he’s learning to carry. He feels and listens for the clues as toContinue reading “Ahhh, springtime”
Got word last night that a friend of mine passed away. We had met thru’ my ad for saddle making in the Cowboy magazine. She had a horse who was giving her a hard time and she wondered if the saddle might be the problem. After some phone calls and long conversations, the upshot ofContinue reading “Jill”
