We saw a lot of Pronghorn Antelope. Or Speed Goats. Whatever you wanna call ’em.

Lupine grows in the meadows all around the Tetons. It is a flowering plant in the legume family.

Antelope Calves

I spotted this cutie yesterday evening when I got home after a busy day in town.

Deer fawns aren’t the only young ones bucking happily through the meadows. Baby antelope are running around here in two’s (the cow usually has twins). This calf was getting ready to stand up because it saw it’s mom and sibling across the road but froze when I pulled up.

The doe has a gash in her front right leg. She seems to be taking good care of her babies but she’s got to be hurting. She could have gotten caught on a fence, gotten kicked, who knows how this happened. But it looks like she’ll heal up and be back to normal soon. They let me get a few shots before taking off.

Have a relaxing Sunday my friends and stay cool. It’s hot out there!


 

The Laramie Plains

Posted in Cattle Roundup, Nature, Ranching, Wildlife by leahyetter on July 13, 2010

The cows are spending the summer on the Laramie Plains and we go check on them from time to time. I use the term “we” loosely because Patrick goes  way more often than I do. But I like to think I do some good on these trips. Hey, I’ve got cows eating cake right out of my hands remember? Anywho, we see a lot of wildlife in this wide open space and I can’t help but share some of the beauty with you once again.

Triplets!

The cows were happy to see us. They gobbled up the salt and mineral. They look really good and tubby out there.

Yum!

The bulls were not so happy to see us. They never are.

Staring contest with a bull can be scary.

But it didn’t stop them from attempting to get their groove on.

He's asking her if she wants to "see the inside of his truck".

Patrick spotted these guys as I got out of the truck to open a  gate.

And I almost stepped on these. Thank goodness Patrick saw them before I became Godzilla and destroyed their town and family.

As we were leaving, we finally spotted our first state flower of the year.  You know it’s summer when you finally see Indian Paintbrush.

This guy needed to check us out before we went through his gate. We said hello and went our separate ways.

It was a good day.
