Took the first three photos this past Wednesday of 2 meadows at the home place. We pulled irrigation dams July 1 and they are still as wet as when we had water on. In excess of 5 inches since Monday afternoon.

Big Meadow south of the house.


High Draw


Water on the ground


The balance of these were taken today at Morrison Meadow.

High water in Holtry Creek took the road out between the homesite and the meadows, we are replacing the culvert with a bridge. Last year at this time you would have had to wait to fill a 5 gallon bucket at the culvert.


Heifers




One of the heifer bulls, the other decided he didn't want his portrait taken.


Pairs, the gates are open for them to go to range but it is so wet out there they chose to keep the pasture grazed close and their feet relatively dry. Outside they would be belly deep to get their summer grass. This is normally a really dry flat.


More rain on the way. :( Probably another 1/2 inch in the last 2 hours. :roll:


The old-timers used to say that haying on the ice was smooth going. :)

Nice Pix - As frustrating as all that rain can be, an older man once told me, "you can grow grass in mud, but you can't in dust"

Bet that bull is relieved Nathaniel didn't brand him :wink: :lol: .

Your cattle look good, but I'm sure would appreciate some sunlight and drier ground. What a crazy year!

At least your wet country is pretty and green, Gcreek. Our meadows are quite wet right now, also, and we are not able to mow nearly as deep as usual. Today is supposed to be another day with temps up over 100 degrees, and the first half of this week is supposed to be extreme heat. It won't take many of these days to make us desire another rain again soon. :wink:
