Cattle, grass, horses, you, your family, branding gizmo~everything looks good!
However...an old cowboy/team roper told me once
"you swing your rope and you twirl your girl." :lol2: :lol2: :cboy: :gag:

You are right, FH. It's not too good to have a rope that twirls and a girl who swings. :wink:

Soap, it just doesn't get any better than that.

Thanks, burnt. You are right, and especially after three tenths of an inch of rain last night, and a total of nearly two and a half inches in the past week. It's foggy and drizzly this morning, so I'm using this as an excuse to put up some pictures. :wink:

That is the life! Pretty sunrise, cattle look great, great crew, really liked the reflection pictures and seeing a horse hobbled, the little speck of a horse and rider topped out while gathering a bunch to brand, even down to the oreo's at the branding :D

Dreaming of green grass under the snow Soapweed. Our Sandhill Cranes showed up this morning so spring must be here.

Thanks for the photos, those calves are really growing. :wink:

Saw our first Sandhills about 3 days ago here as well. I also saw 4 geese sitting on eggs in a slough on top of muskrat huts this morning.
