Interesting day. At first I thought it was going to snow and we hung around the house for a while but my cowboy said it was "fine" and he needed some help. So, after many years of living with this man I knew "fine" meant, long underwear, flannel shirt, warm vest, scarf, gloves, and my snowmobile jacket. Dressing for "fine"paid off and I was toasty warm in spite of the weather.
There was some blue sky.
I noticed this first off. After the Alberta Wild Roses are done these red berry like things (rose hips) are left that are extremely high in Vitamin C.
that apparently coyotes eat.
Sorry. To wipe that image out of your head I saw this hawk feather. I have no idea why I think this but every time I see a feather I think it is a message from God that he loves me. I know . . . wierd.
I can't believe the height of the needle and thread grass. (Big fire hazard)
Bachgen got to come with his dad Blue today. He was a happy dog until
I called them back so they wouldn't chase this mother antelope.
We checked the combined Charolais/Late Red Angus herd.
We found a sick calf that needed treating. Pretty cold and they don't have their long fuzzies on yet so we are watching for pneumonia.
He took his medicine like a big boy
Then we went to the south end to take care of this bad customer. He was scared enough to be dangerous but we were careful and it all worked out. He's safe, back in the bull pasture till Wednesday, next week when all the bulls go home (I can hardly wait).
Home looked good when I got there but it was one "fine" day, just like my cowboy said.
