A Cowboy’s Vessel

Happy Monday, friends!
We had an eventful weekend full of horses, cows, cowboys, snapping turtles, and good friends and it couldn’t have been better. The rain held off down here but the thick clouds drenched the hills. The river is high and muddy and since we don’t have a boat, Patrick had to cross it horseback to mend fence. Gray did well at a branding and on the ride home, helped us lead our bay horse to the barn so he could go home with the best horse whisperer we know. Oh, and speaking of the river being high, we, ahem, Patrick, captured two HUGE snapping turtles out of puddles in the meadow and relocated them. They are a danger to the cows and especially the calves. Anyway, that was an adventure all in itself. Those things are scary!!
Hope you are having a great start to your week. I’ve got a lot of images to share with you from the weekend, sans turtles. 😉

    Love the picture, too. It’s awesome, in fact. Snapping turtles in Wyoming? I didn’t know you have them there.

    I caught a huge snapping turtle once, big as my car’s steering wheel; it WAS scary! Great pix, Leah! 🙂

      Thank you!
      Yeah, I don’t touch those things. Patrick gets in kind of a wrestling stance with legs and arms spread wide and then grabs the tail and tosses it into a big tub. The crazy thing about those guys is that they can escape pretty easy out of a horse tank. They are just icky!!
