Thank you, kind sir. I will raise my cup to that. :)

We did get a couple or three inches of snow today, which settled the dust and made the air smell fresh.

Lovely photos Soapweed. The cows are looking very well. Are you having a easy year calving . Must be nicer without the snow or are you concerned about water for the land. PS. Kosmo kid looks better without the meg.

Hey Soap, when is Goose going to foal? :wink:

Cool pictures. Made me feel better, when I seen where you had a hole in the fence and used a panel to cover it. I d that all the time and always look to you to have everything top notch, so if you do it, it make me feel better about myself. :)

And tell Kosmo, he will be the cause of the next storm. Shaving your beard off in blizzard country, this time of the year, what was he thinking? :???:
