I failed at what I attempted to do today with rounding up some of the cattle and had to drive the trailer around and wait for my cowboy, Hooch, and Pshaw. When I first got there, to the south end of the field a few cows came to see if it was mooooooving day for them.
It wasn't but they called and a few more friends showed up.
Then a few more
till finally they were all waiting in the corner to move South (no picture of the whole bunch). They really are insistant. So I decided to walk over there and take some portrait pictures.
I thought this one was the best. That 16 is her ear is her lease tag, it tells us who her owner is and makes sorting so much easier in the fall because they just look at the tag when the cow comes down the alley in those nice new pipe corrals I showed you the other other day. It is so much faster than reading brands on furry hides.
Pay particular attention to the variety of hairdos.
You can really see the Simmental influence, eh?
See how much Hooch has grown : ) He's gonna be a big boy I think. Note he's in a hackamore already.
My cowboy says I'm really going to like him when it's my turn. I can hardly wait.
