Catching Grasshoppers

Posted in Calving, Cattle Roundup, Photography by leahyetter on April 11, 2011

The calves are growing up. They are still munchkins compared to their momma but they get feistier and run faster everyday.

They cautiously approach me full of curiosity when the rancher is unloading a bale of hay.

But today is branding day for these guys and gals and it won’t be as easy to get this close to them.

We’ve got to catch these little grasshoppers first.

Wish us luck because this will probably be our view for the next couple of hours before we get them pinned.
