Sunday Roundup

Posted in Cattle Roundup, Home by leahyetter on May 2, 2010

This morning it was time to gather the cattle to move them to a new meadow. I took the lead in the Rhino and Patrick and Shadow, the cow dog, brought up the rear on foot. I had cake in the back so they were more than happy to follow me.

It was a beautiful morning with blue skies, lots of sunshine and very low winds.

We got them across the river and into the meadow and it was time for cake. When Patrick isn’t looking, I’m spoiling them.

OOPS! He spotted me and grabbed the camera.

Their tongues and rougher than kitty tongues. But they are gentle when they eat from my fingers.

The last of the calves are entering the meadow. We’ll check tomorrow for any stragglers that didn’t run with the herd.

Next it was time to repair the fences in this meadow. You can spot the Ranch back there with the green roof.

We fenced for a couple of hours, turned around and could no longer see the Ranch. Only a storm coming our way. We high-tailed it back to the house.

I spotted these tiny flowers along the way. If you know what this is, will you let me know?

We got home covered in snow. It only lasted a few minutes before the sun came back out and continued to be a beautiful day.

    Is that place filled with storms or is just me? And I complain about not being summer yet…

      You’re funny. Well, the weather is just completely unpredictable out here especially in the hills. And a rain, snow or lightning storm can creep up so fast, you never know when it’s going to hit. But the wind is the most viscous force of nature. It will snow 4 inches one day and the very next day there won’t be any snow on the ground because the wind kicked up at 60 mph and blew it all away. It is our population control. 🙂
