Beautiful Day for a Preg Check

Posted in Cattle Roundup, Nature, Photography, Ranching by leahyetter on October 19, 2011

Fall is really taking shape in this little corner of the world. I hope it is treating you well too. Here are a few shots from the past couple of days.

The guys rounded up the cattle and brought them to the corrals. It’s that time of year to test how well the bulls did.

We brought them through the meadows where the trees are golden and the grass is rich. The ladies tried like heck to stop and eat but this is winter feed, they can’t have this grass yet.

I didn’t shoot during the pregnancy tests. You should thank me for that. Instead I’m just showing you trailing through the fall color.

We started testing around 8 am and were done around 4pm. Then we trailed into the sunset to the hills behind the ranch. The cattle have had a busy few days on their hooves. The guys brought them home from the Plains, rested for two days, then an arm went up their ‘you know what’ to see if they are with calf. I know they are ready for us to leave them alone. And we will until the snow covers the ground to where they can’t get enough grub. Then they’ll come closer to the house, feast on hay bales and we’ll wait for the babies to arrive.
Just another year in paradise is all.

      Thank you! They did pretty good. We had to pull a few out to go to “greener pasture” but other than that, it was a good percentage.
