The view from here

Monday evening had to be one of the prettiest evenings we’ve had on a while! It’s the time of year when you check cows a couple times a day and heifers every three to four hours! Including all night. It’s great fun! We’ve got three heifers calved out and about a dozen cows.

I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.

Tuesday’s Tales – A Mad Mama Cow!

This week, we go back to last year’s calving season: I’ve heard it said that you don’t know what true fear is until you’ve been chased down by a mad mama cow. Now, as someone who’s only been on a ranch the past five six years or so, I don’t have a lot of experience […]

Hey, baby!

While I was gone to Colorado this past week we had our first calf born. And then two more on Saturday. Sunday afternoon, a heifer calved and she wasn’t sure what this little creature was or where it had come from or that it even needed her! So the cowboy put her in her barn […]

Man am I excited! I’ve been Facebook friends with Lynn for years, and have followed her on Twitter as well. When I was in Kiowa last year, I got to meet her and visit for a while. Ambitious, kind, smart and of course, a horse lover, she runs LOPE – Lonestar Outreach to place Ex-Racehorses. […]

I left the ranch on Saturday to head to Sheridan, Wyoming to pick a horse up for my friend in Colorado. I spent the night in Sheridan and grabbed a pretty, mouse-colored, buckskin horse on Sunday morning and was headed South to Colorado by 8:30am. Along the way, both days, I did stop to take […]

Farmland – the documentary about farmers and ranchers

This morning, as I was going through my inbox, I got notified that there was a new post from Debbie at her blog, Life on a Kansas Cattle Ranch. And what I saw there made me instantly run to YouTube and grab this little snippet of video to share with you. I’m kind of excited […]

Green Chile Chicken Taco Casserole

20140402-080002.jpg

I did it again – posted what we were having for supper last night on a Facebook Thread and half a dozen people asked for the recipe. This was basically a dump-what-you-have-in-the-pan kind of thing. I am in need of a grocery story trip, but have been putting it off, because I need to go […]

Fur Flying – Your Friday Funny

south dakota cowgirl photography, cats, kittens, fur

On a ranch, it’s not uncommon to have lots of cats running around. I mean, this place is big enough for every cat to have its own zip-code. Granny has a house-cat that managed to get herself knocked-up. Miss Kitty was born in May of 2013 and is now a mama herself. Time flies. The […]
