    Yellow Labs

    She's probably right. But I think labs also tend to be one of those breeds where you can still trust the vast majority with your kids. Even if they are fat. :wink: On a side note: Temple Grandin is a prof over at CSU in Ft. Collins. One of the guys that does day help for us took a seminar...

    Jack wakes up with a pounding headache and a bleary look. A rose bud is on the pillow next to him along with two aspirin. He looks around the room and sees that it is in perfect order, spotlessly clean. So is the rest of the house. He takes the aspirins, cringes when he sees a huge black eye...

    CRP questions

    We're considering buying a half section that's currently (mostly) in CRP. Actually, 80 acres are in wheat and the rest in CRP. It's enrolled until 2007, but has supposedly been extended for two years beyond that. Since we just ranch, I've never had more than a passing aquaintance with CRP...

    Branding photos from Saturday

    Low sixties, sunny and a slight breeze. Perfect day to brand. Ground crew all set: Ropers picking out a good one: Friend of ours waiting to drop the NorthFork (some years we use these, some years we don't. Depends on how many people we have). I don't know if you can see very well, but...

    stevec--Fear vs. Self Defense

    You seem to hold the basic idea that our fears govern a great deal of our choices. And to a philosophic extent, I agree with that. My husband runs a ranch for an out of state investor who also happens to have a farm here. The two are connected, but operate separately. The farm has recently...

    He tried to kill my cat!!

    Classic story, she was outside (even though she's actually my housecat), got cold and crawled up under the hood of the pickup that was plugged in. The lesser half went out for his afternoon check on Sunday, started it up, heard a big clunk and saw chunks of black fur fly out. The "clunk"...

    Think you know everything?

    Just got this so I don't know if they're all true! :D _________________________________________________________ For those of you who just thought you knew everything, here's a refresher course... **** The liquid inside young coconuts can be used as a substitute for blood plasma. *** No piece...

    I've been running a friend's store this week in the next town down the road from us while she's in Vegas. She doesn't have a radio in the store, so all I can get is NPR via webcast. Which means I didn't know anything about the fire until a gal was in the store chatting with me and pointed...

    Why do ranch hands move so often?

    This question was posed in another thread, and I really don't know. I think it has something to do with the boss being your landlord being your nearest neighbor. anyone else have some thoughts? For the actual hands, What was your worst job? The one you couldn't wait to leave?

    Anyone catch the NE gubernatorial debate this evening?

    I don't know who else broadcast it, but I caught it on NPR this evening at 5 (mountain). Thus far, I think I'm most impressed with Dr. Tom. Nabity seems to be living in another state... :roll:

    Pairing IN, rather than pairing out...

    Anyone try something like this? The way we're set up, our cows winter on picked corn fields, and we calve out on the them, too. Since they only have so much feed value on them, they have to rotate. This year, the lesser half decided he'd rotate sooner so that he could leave his pairs behind...

    Gallery question

    okay, figured out how to upload (I have to re-sign in). But it's not possible to upload since the maximum file size is constrained to 1K! I can understand the upload limit of one per day, but a 1K photo?? Is there a bug somewhere?

    Whew! Tax season is done for another year.

    Paid sales tax on Saturday (I have an eBay biz. Not much for in-state sales, but enough that I need to pay a little). Just finished e-filing federal and printed out state. We owe them a few bucks, so that's gonna wait until April, but it's done anyway. I love that feeling of stapling my...

    Anyone do irrigated pastures?

    The lesser half just went to a workshop today on the subject. They were mostly coming at it from the angle of intesive grazing though. He's thinking more along the lines of cool-season grasses that he can use in the spring before branding (and heading out to summer grass) and fall before/after...

    What're everyone's New Years plans?

    Our community is pretty small and every year the vet's club puts on a New Year's party at the VFW/community hall for anyone who wants to pay the cover charge of $8 a head. (12 and under are free) Which is the entire town and then some. :) They feed us supper and then open the bar. Everyone...

    I actually tripped over this site trying to hunt up info on McNabs (someone has a post down below that Google spit up). I used to visit this site now and again a few years ago, but the forums are new since then! :) Anyway, we had just gotten a three or four month old McNab pup from the "local"...
