Grandkids messing around
Rainy day road trip
Pulling into our little town from the west headed east
Don't try this at home.
Sorting out two-year-old heifers, to brand their calves
Just a few more to sort out
Whoops, there is an "oops." A calf escaped, but later we drove him back around into the corral with a couple Rangers.
212 to brand. We processed the first calf at 8:30 a.m. and did the last one at 12:40. Five of us were on the crew.
We had to turn this bunch out to grass on May 5th, mainly because the wind didn't blow for about three days and the two windmills on their feed ground didn't stay ahead. Fortunately this pond was just on the other side of the fence.
I called them with the feed pickup
And Peach followed them out the gate with a Ranger
The herd finished the day with a good drink and green grass. They bedded down for the night quite happy.
I took her picture
So she requested to take mine.
The whole gang went with me. One was playing "pirate" before we left home, so he was a pirate for the rest of the day.
To distribute salt and mineral
They are a pretty rowdy bunch.
Even though they sometimes look quiet and contemplative.
Or do they?
A great bunch of kids
But sometimes they need to run off a little energy
There is the Five on Fox
And these are the Five on Coyote
Green grass, blue sky, and grandkids
You can't beat a combination like that.
One got to drive home
While the others
Just rode along
And hung on
We were gone two hours and the Ranger had 12 more miles on the odometer than it did when we started.
