The Laramie Plains

Posted in Cattle Roundup, Nature, Ranching, Wildlife by leahyetter on July 13, 2010

The cows are spending the summer on the Laramie Plains and we go check on them from time to time. I use the term “we” loosely because Patrick goes  way more often than I do. But I like to think I do some good on these trips. Hey, I’ve got cows eating cake right out of my hands remember? Anywho, we see a lot of wildlife in this wide open space and I can’t help but share some of the beauty with you once again.

Triplets!

The cows were happy to see us. They gobbled up the salt and mineral. They look really good and tubby out there.

Yum!

The bulls were not so happy to see us. They never are.

Staring contest with a bull can be scary.

But it didn’t stop them from attempting to get their groove on.

Patrick spotted these guys as I got out of the truck to open a  gate.

And I almost stepped on these. Thank goodness Patrick saw them before I became Godzilla and destroyed their town and family.

As we were leaving, we finally spotted our first state flower of the year.  You know it’s summer when you finally see Indian Paintbrush.

This guy needed to check us out before we went through his gate. We said hello and went our separate ways.

It was a good day.
