- northern Nebraska Sandhills
Storm clouds and soapweeds
Guarded by a hovering bird
Muley buck on the skyline
Pushing these to another windmill
Where there is a full tank of water waiting
They have arrived.
I had to climb up and get the wheel started in the not-quite-enough breeze.
You can drive a cow to water but you can't make her drink.
Bird's eye view of my conveyance
Doctoring a yearling heifer for foot rot.
We ended up doing seven heifers this way.
Some of the heifers behaved better than others.
Going in to get her out of the drink
Another one secured for Peach to doctor
Yellowstone held up his end of the deal.
Ready to go home
Opening the gate for us
Kosmo and I cheated by throwing our saddles in the back of the ranger and riding home with Peach.
The gates are open wide all the way home
And the horses know the way. Besides, we had company coming for supper.
A long tall pedestrian ready to ride the range, or Ranger I should say.
