In the past two days I’ve ridden three different horses for a minimum of 25 miles.
Zach and I moved a couple hundred pairs of cattle.
Cleared our AI pasture (named for the fact that it used to house the cattle they’d artificially inseminate), the Saddle Horse Pasture (because that’s where the saddle horses live), Buck’s Pasture (named after one of the ranch’s founding studs) and the alfalfa field (because well, we grow alfalfa hay there). We finally got them all situated in our Parker Creek Pasture (named for the creek that runs through it).
Needless to say I’m tired and my arse hurts.
I had planned a whole post about freeze branding for today, but I’m pretty sure that’s gonna have to wait.
Tonight is our last barrel race of the summer series and I’m winning a buckle as of right now. Keep your fingers crossed for me, please!
