Due to respect for all you who have drought I have hesitated to post too many pictures from our place. But seeing as Myt asked I thought an exception would be OK.

Actually if the truth were to be told I have been pretty busy and became a bit of a lurker.

The grass here has been blessed with sun and rain.

Pretty good grass year but no snow in the mountains.

Cows in training to toughen up in case gcreek wants to buy us out.

Pretty dense bush for a prairie guy. Good thing I can turn around and see the flat land from here.

Bull who just came home from his tour.

Packer ran down the road out of control today. Driver survived, be careful out there.

That was a couple of days ago although I do have a pic of today's. I was out baling and that big boomer split in 2 and some went south and the other headed straight for you. We are having trouble mowing our grass fast enough to keep the fire hazard down for when it lignifies. Sort of grazing the higher risk fields first. Better problem than most though.

Country and cattle look great Per. It's unfortunate that we can't share our moisture with those in need.

I was starting to wonder if your wife took your camera away. That is awful dangerous having a golf course that close to your hay field. ( one round with the baler one round on the course). :D

Per, your country is amazingly beautiful! And with your practices, it
will stay that way. I can hardly wait to see it again.

New series of Heartland has started (third season) and that is our favorite
tv show, so we do get to see country near you every week. So beautiful
and productive.
