These are abit late in being posted but since it's drizzling this morning thought I'd get them on finally.

Went mushrooming for Jim, the neighbor's, birthday. Didn't find any morels, but did get alot of calf brains.

Mike the mighty mushroom hunter


With his saw...actually it is Jim's. Neither of us had a knife with us.


Creek was a tad high so that is why the black cow traildrive was delayed


Had a few cool nights and it went down so we decided to go. The cows getting gathered up. (No picture of my horse getting stuck in the mud...in the hayfield of all places)


Whoo hoo...we're going somewhere


The creek is still high, but manageable


Had a few floaters but not too bad


The trusty calf watchers


Jim on Emily


Heading up the hill


Jill doing her thing


Busy dog, kinda warm for the dogs but ok for the cattle and us.


Flowers galore



The lower Powder River was a bit high...view from the top of the hill


Antelope on the ridge watching us mother up


Even working dogs have to nap sometime


Memorial day weekend, David (Mikes son) and Caleb were both home on leave from the army. :) David is in Afghanastan and Caleb is in Iraq.

This is Adam (another nephew), David and Caleb


Mike and David


Putting salt out and took a few pics
Cow with a Ribeye bull calf


Steer calf that can't wait for mom to wake up...doesn't look like he's missed many meals!


Not a may picture but Caleb came back over this last weekend for his last weekend of leave.

Looks like you had a nice moist spring, hopefully the drizzle you're getting now is needed and welcome.
I sure like the way you had those cows strung out so nicely.

Your country looks good Nicky, should make those calves push the scale down this fall.
How did the new cows take going where they hadn't been before? Seems they were strung out fairly well.

Thanks for sharing.

A calf brain mushroom is wild mushroom that looks like a calf brain. The aren't as good as the morel mushrooms but they come on earlier and are still very tasty. Going to look for wild mushroom is a fun part of early summer in this area.

Silver, we are way ahead of normal for moisture and are loving it!!! The drizzle turned out to be .20" and was very welcome :) Hopefully you will be getting some moisture soon too.

Gcreek, we were very happy with how the new cows traveled. We have 28 of our other cows with them so they knew the way. But they all just trailed great, actually made record time to the pond where we left them. And they seem quite happy where they are now.

Wonderful pictures, Nicky. The countryside looks both scenic and productive, and the livestock are doing well. Thanks to those young men for serving their country, and thank you for posting the photos.

Neat pictures! Nice lookin' Hereford baby you got there. Love the pic of not waiting....I have kids like that! (And have pictures of a neighbors foal nursing off a mare that was laying down...). Thank you for sharing. Very interesting. :D

Oh, and mushroom hunting is a blast...we used to do it in Maine. Yummy! Cool to see the cowboys (and girls) do it!!
