Even though we could use a rain, the water level is high. There is a 30' steel tank about six inches under this pond.

Image
A good crew is helping to move yearling heifers in the north country.

Image
Easy does it.

Image
The heifers are doing well.

Image
Persuading them to a different pasture

Image
The Kosmo Kid and I are not getting too saddle sore.

Image
Crew at work

Image
This pasture has lots of grass.

Image
Taking the yearlings on to water

Image
A bird is hiding and trying to remain incognito on yonder post.

Image
It is resting and doesn't want to be disturbed.

Image
Even though it thinks it's invisible

Image
I can see it.

Image
Cattle in repose

Image
Sparky and the Kosmo Kid

Image
And here they re-pose.

Image
A nice day for fun in the creek

Image
Unlike the day of the 22nd of May, when these tough kids were enjoying the water in considerably colder weather

Image
On this day, the thermometer in my pickup read 54 degrees, with a fairly stout breeze.

Image
They are tough and seem to be having fun.

Image
I do admire them.

Image
And they are happy.

Image
Here is how I was dressed on that day--winter coat and vest, and I was still chilly.

LOL, I used to be those kids and now I dress more like you.

Always like your Heifers. I was just thinking yours are a group I'd buy out of

Thanks. They are a pretty consistent group of heifers, and should turn into good cows.
