Been taking a few photos and thought I would share.

Our high selling yearling from earlier this spring. Reg. # 16609069

A Hereford bull we raised and have used the last two years. This pic and the next were taken late last fall as a 2 yr old. He is now 3 and an easy calver for sure.

Looking east across a piece of hayground along the Cacapon River, which is Native American for 'medicine waters'.

Baling some first cutting alfalfa to the south of the last pic. These bales are headed for the wrapper shortly.

View to west across about 20 acres of mostly brome hay with a small piece of pasture ground heading up the valley behind.

Pretty country :D

Is there any grass among the trees?

Yep...mostly in the valleys and on the ridge tops-a lot of the hill sides can get pretty steep. The whole state is something like 75% forest so clear areas are sometimes pretty far apart.

In Co, the Pagosa Springs are a Ute Indian word for Healing Waters, similiar to your Cacapon word I suppose. That kind of stuff interests me.

The trees do get beautiful in the fall. I've seen Aspens in the Rockies in the fall too and I'm not sure which is prettier. They make for some nice Sunday afternoon drives. Last fall was so dry though we hardly had any color. The leaves just dried up and fell off.

The bull is not perfect but we like him pretty well.
