Calving Grounds

Posted in Nature, Photography by leahyetter on December 15, 2011

It is a gorgeous day on the ranch. I cannot believe it is December in Wyoming and the temps are in the upper 30’s. I’m even thinking about opening the windows!

This is the pasture where we will calve this year. Soon it will be covered in momma cows and brand new babies. The girls now are up in the hills you see in the background. They really love it up there and the best way to get them out is to let it get really cold and snowy, take a ride up in the tractor with a full bale of hay, and beep the horn. They will come running from all directions when they see and hear us. They won’t  miss the opportunity of a free and easy meal. I’ll be sure to report on that when it happens.

Almost doesn’t seem right to have the falling snow option on the blog with an image like this. Looks like late summer….

    There is so much light and color for a December photo. We’re swamped in the dark gray darkness of rain, but with temps in the mid 50’s! We’re normally buried under a foot or two of snow by now. (:
