I am soooo tired, dirty, hungry, and thirsty. On a horse at 9 AM, back at 7 PM or shortly after, nothing to eat all day but I did take a little water on my horse. Those long days are a killer.
Moved cows, close to 500 head, to a different field, hunted for a calf in poky, nasty buffalo berry bushes but couldn't find him, and had to send one of my favorite Simmental bulls home with a broken 'male appendage.' I tried to be real respectful because I knew he doesn't have many days of life left. I felt bad. He moved to the corrals so sweet.
I had all that to do and also had to take care of a bucked off, less than helpful cowboy all day and do chores when I got home and fix his dinner and . . . . And no pictures all day because I didn't take my camera with me.
But tomorrow I party. I am going to a Livestock School for Women. Two of things I love most (beside my dog and my horse and of course, my cowboy) cows and learning about cows. It's a couple of days so I'll have to catch up and fill you all in when I get back.
