High Tide

It’s been a very wet spring so far with more rain to come. The Laramie River is high and rapid and is crashing against the bank. It’s pretty spectacular.

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. 😉


 

The Laramie is High and the Sun is Bright!

I got a call a couple days ago that reservoir #1 was so full that they would be releasing water down the Laramie River. They weren’t kidding! The river is really high and our meadows are full of lakes and streams. We moved the cows and calves out yesterday evening with help from the neighbor kids. It was a riot splashing through the meadows on our four-wheelers. We are again thankful for the moisture and with that and the blinding sun, the grass is really growing. Oh spring, how I adore thee! 🙂
