the Laramie River, mostly frozen

We moved cattle yesterday and separated the heifers (new mother cows) from the cows and now we watch and wait for the babies to drop. The black cows will give birth first and soon and the reds will start in April or so.

The snowfall started yesterday evening and came down all night over the ranch. We are on the outskirts of the storm that is hammering Colorado and it’s been drizzling snow off and on today. There isn’t much accumulation so it’s pretty easy to get around.
I just love the peacefulness of a snowfall. There is something so serene about the clean, white blanket that covers the ground and the only thing I hear is the snow crunching under my boots.

    Awesome photos…I too love a nice snow…as long as it doesn’t linger on for more than a few days.

      Thanks!
      Yeah, it’s bittersweet here. I don’t like for it to linger too long either but what happens is the wind starts to blow as the temperature rises. And it blows and blows and blows. Like 45 to 65 mph. Ugh. It gets rid of the snow but the howling through the trees stinks!

    Gorgeous. I love the silence of snowfall. I’m always amazed to watch it fall without making a sound. So peaceful.
