Uprooted Magnolia

Just another day of…

Posted in Home, Ranching, Wildlife by leahyetter on July 26, 2010

work work work. From sun up to sun down, the chores must be done.

We’re baling and stacking hay at the main ranch these days. Patrick drives the tractor. I drove the truck and trailer full of hay bales yesterday.

The head ditch needed cleaning from beaver and flood clogging. It’s time to get water flowing into the meadows to grow a second cut of hay.

I can’t go on without mentioning that we dodge buzztails regularly.

Putting shoes on the horses can be challenging. I think I was more in the way than helpful but Patrick got them done successfully. The rocks out here are tough on their hoofs and shoes are necessary for an evening ride through the hills.

Then sometimes we get to watch the moon rise over the meadow,

and through the trees.

That is only if we’ve finished the days chores and if we haven’t fallen asleep face first into our dinner plate.

    Living in paradise is not for weak people. Still, wish it was a little easier.
