I have been what seems to be an out-of-control busy cowgirl. I am just now finally getting time to sit and breath. And I can’t tell you how much I need some time to catch up.
In the past two weeks we’ve:
Torn out and rebuilt the corrals at the barn. Something like 60+ posts later, it’s completely functional. Not finished.
We’ve moved countless pairs, to pasture; more than once. Not complainin’ just sayin’. A cowgirl never cries about being horseback.
I discovered my intern, Kara, does a good job when she cleans house!
We’ve had family and friends and good food since Friday evening.
My family came up from Texas.
We had a mock herd gather- where 6 hours after we started moving the herd, we ended up back in the pasture where we started. It happens.
I have had pink ear tags on my table. Again.
We branded almost 300 calves, and worked almost that many mama cows too.
Doing laundry with two teenage girls in the house (who do do their own laundry) can be a logistical nightmare.
We took Zach’s son, Ty on his first ride outside of the arena or round-pen, in a big pasture today to move pairs.
So if I have been scarce this is why. And I do intend to catch all y’all up on the goings on, with photos and other fun stuff, but for now, this photo of me counting cows on Saturday’s branding will have to suffice.
I will be back soon!
