Just a few random pictures that I could get this PoC picture program to down load. Wish I could do better.

It is just nice to see grass, we are getting a cold snap with snow, wind coming out of the east. Bad direction for this country.

I like those Red Roans.

Yes, nice to see grass and horses on grass. We have had snow here since forever! It snows every day.
Thanks for posting the mustangs tonight. I needed that......I REALLY needed that! :D

I even recognized Ol' One Ear. The buckskin mare has neat markings on her face.

They all are so good! Think my favorite is the second one of the fighting horses. Their manes are flowing so nicely. Looks like they were 'done up' by a great hair stylist!!!

FH, think we have had almost two weeks since the big thaw took nearly all the drifts off the hillsides, so have been pretty snow free. Then the past two days we have had flurries resulting with a more wintry look again. Probably less than an inch. But down into '20s or even one digit at night. Tough on the babies. We are calving two year olds early and intensely. Think it has been a week or ten days. Have more than half of them, and they were supposed to start this week-end. Pulling too many, considering all are A-I from 'calving ease' bulls. Will be checking into that. Lots of twins. Not sure what the total is, since we have two crews in two locations and everyone is too busy to 'visit' with me! Unless they need an errand run, that is.

But that is my job, along with playing with the little girls so their mother can help. Sometimes keeps TWO grandma's busy! Just had the four year old yesterday, after fetching her home from pre-K. I asked if she could stay with me for a while. We made muffins after she found some mini-chocolate chips and asked what they were for. She thought they were fine as candy, too!

FH, I feel for you! Seems like winter has been forever! Not the hardest, but awfully intense much of the time since our Christmas Blizzard. I actually noticed lots of green grass coming on the big fire area near Cactus Flat on I-90. There was another big fire north west of that one last week which burned another several thousand acres, too. But they are nothing like KS, OK, and CO are having! Such a waste and tragedy added to that, with the deaths and injuries. People think all the snow will guarantee a good grass year. I'm not so sure that will happen here. I fear it wasn't enough wet, heavy snow, and may have evaporated out a lot of the moisture. I know they heavy, wet snows we can get in spring do lots of good, but sure are hard on little calves. Calving more in synch with nature might help, but then in 'desert mode' which hits SD all too often our springs can get awfully hot, even in May, and that is hell on a cow in labor, too. And always seems to bring on a big hatch of all kinds of biting pests to aggravate things.

Good thing it's only five miles to Midland, as the whole school, plus some kids from Kadoka are practicing for a Tumbling performance. Since Pre-K is a half day a couple days a week and Tumbling practices are not always the same day, it makes extra trips. is a Tumbling is a combination of gymnastics and dare-devil leaps and somersaults the Midland school made famous across SD some years ago when an adventurous young coach developed the program. It died with our high school, and has been revived the past few years in our grade school, and is a big hit with kids and spectators. It fits all ages and flexible numbers, as our grandkid is the youngest at age 4, and there are some up into high school. Three parents plus occasional helpers coach it, older kids help younger ones and they aren't doing many performances and they are only at area schools, not statewide as in the past. Practices look like bedlam with close to 50 kids, and it appears some shock collars would be helpful!! But when they get the mats placed, which looks like a bunch of busy little ants repairing a damaged nest, as even the littlest ones 'help'. But when they get down to business, it all makes sense. Even the littlest knows who she is supposed to follow, and watches to make sure the one behind her is in place, too. It sure does teach cooperation to the kids, not to mention patience for the adults involved!!! They have two performances left, one at out local Education Fair/Soup Supper March 30th, and another at Kadoka in April. Then maybe spring will be with us and they will focus on outdoor action for PE.

mrj,I enjoyed reading about the Tumbling in your schools. That sounds more like sports used to be. I don't know how long schools (taxpayers) can afford to bus kids all over the state for athletic events. Makes no sense to me. It's a big business!

Our snow is heavy and wet. It melted a couple of times, so underneath the new snow is........ice!! Town doesn't have it and east of us doesn't have it, we have it! We are in the foothills of the mountains, and this is snow country, which we knew, but it has been especially snowy this winter.

We have customers in SE Montana that were talking about their conditions. They got that big blizzard in Dec.~ 18" of snow. Covered everything, drifted the barrow pits full, etc. They have had nothing since, the ground is bare and there was no runoff in the resevoirs. They are in drought conditions. Just crazy. Where did the snow go?
