Its Christmas eve 2018. Cant believe how quick this year has passed. Wanted to send out a Merry Christmas from the desert, to all our ranchers friends. Hope y'all have time to spend with loved ones. And may 2019 treat you kindly and much success comes to the beef industry. Thanks for your friendships and for the things you've taught me with your posts. And the entertainment value is high around here too! :lol2: Be Blessed y'all! And Merry Christmas from the Leanin H Family

Merry Christmas from the foothills of the Big Horn Mountains in Wyoming. You have done your part in keeping us entertained.
We had our daughter here for Christmas eve day and our grandson and wife (parents-to-be) will be here tomorrow.
We are blessed!

Today is probably the quietest Christmas of our lives...….and I am enjoying it! Can't even get our TV to work. Gotta call a grandkid to figure it out....again!

We had the traditional oyster stew for the older family members, and some good beef with noodles for the rest of the family last night. A few gifts to open, and the little great-grand kids went home looking forward to Christmas Morning.

Being one of four congregations in a four point parish, with about a 140 mile round trip to get all of them in on one day, we make it easy as possible for our pastor, so had several 'Christmas' services, but none last night, nor today.

Hoping the promised snow storm is a 'no show', so our family from Omaha area can get here later this week to spend a few days, not to mention making life better for cows and cowboys!
Wishing a Great and Blessed New Year to one and all!

Merry Christmas everyone! Congratulations Faster horses! Spent a lot of the day feeding so most of the young folks could be gone. Our little grandson is getting pretty proficient at opening his presents.

Merry Christmas H and everyone else on here. Prime rib for Christmas dinner here. Not all the city folk are on board but they all happily partake. Pretty quiet around here in Southern Alberta as our only chore so is to keep the water available. The winter so far is conducive to our preference to graze.

Merry Christmas to all the Ranchers clan. With moving back to Alberta this year we were busier than a puppy with 2 peckers. But it was sure nice to be close to family again, and be able to enjoy time with lots of them over the holidays. All the best to you folks in 2019.

Merry Christmas to you, Pure.
You moved back to Alberta? It sounded to me like where you were was as pretty close to heaven as was on
this earth. Glad you are back with family.

The best to you and yours in the New Year, and to all who are on ranchers.net.

Looks as if all had nice time for Christmas! Always good when 'old man winter' cooperates for the Holy Days! Cows grazing thru the winter is such a blessing that it somewhat evens up the time spent keeping the water available. If someone would invent a really effective overflow valve that didn't plug up at the slightest excuse (such as a minute amount of dry grass stuck in it!) life of we whose cattle hopefully graze thru the winter could be far less stressful!

Our worst dilemma involving cleaning out an over-flow did occur during summer, tho. The elder cowboy on the ranch reached in the 3" pipe to remove a wad of hay and was 'stung' by what he assumed was an insect....until he started having strange symptoms, such as numbness of hands. Turned out it was a rattlesnake! Only one fang connected, which was fortunate, as it was a young one and they cannot 'meter' the amount, but give it all the venom at once, which is far more serious than the dose of an adult rattler. Fortunately, it was treated early enough to have no lasting effects, and only a couple days in the hospital.

Wow! That is quite a happening, MRJ. Glad your cowboy survived that deal.

It's been very nice weather here the past couple of weeks. Anyone calving in January in Nebraska this year is "hitting the jackpot." We will see what the rest of the winter and next spring brings--just taking it one day at a time, just like we always do.

Thanks FH and Soapweed. That happened a couple of years ago. We feel blessed with the outcome....and the fact that it was the first such incident on this ranch since our family has been in this area, beginning about 1888, tho the ranch was started about 190?
There are at least six members of the 'founding families' who established ranches along the Brave Bull Creek which runs into Bad River west of Midland, SD.
