We have been busy here, If you can imagine being busy on a cattle ranch. We have been moving cow around and getting them into some summer pastures. Figuring out how we are gonna brand this year. Sounds like we are gonna Rodear them. Means brand them outside not bring them into the corrals. Less stress on them. We won't have to trail them 2 ways. We will push them into a low spot with a fence on one side or corner them.Go in and rope the calves out of the herd. We will head an heel them. I can't wait for that!! I think I put over twenty five miles on my pony yesterday morning, Pretty sure its way more than that.
Sharon and I are going to Casper to eat some Thia food. We are think we will get it to go and have a picnic at the park by the river. I want to go to the Salvation Army thift store. I need a new sweat shirt. I have a hard time paying $30-40 for a sweat shirt Im gonna wear to work that is gonna get greasy or holes in it the first time I wear it. The cows don't care what I look like.
When I got home yesterday afternoon I gathered the bulls with the cake truck. So we could haul them to summer pasture before we turn them out. I opened a gate and turned water on for the yearling replacement heifers. They can drift into summer pasture. We will move them around acouple times. Here's my big helpers.
Until next time take care
