My last blog was about processing the calves. But before we could do that we had to bring them home off of the desert. We have been doing a lot of riding lately.
We have had all sorts of weather. It started out windy, very dry and cold. Then dry and quite hot. Then, after the heat wave we got several days of rain and cold. The rain was welcomed, although not the most fun to push cows in.
I haven't been that wet riding before. We had good rain gear, but keeping feet and hands dry was a challenge. When it rains in these parts the temperature drops. It was 37 degrees.
On the side hills the ground was like a giant wet sponge. The horses and cows sunk into their knees with every step. They really had to work hard.
The pictures really don't show how muddy and wet it actually was. Trust me, it was WET. These are the days REAL cowboys are made of. Guess I passed the test.
This is what it looked like the next day when we went out to process those calves. Stay tuned for my next blog to see how it went.
