Whoo! What a month it's been. I know I have posted branding pictures, but that is just a part of all the cattle work we do in the month of May. We also bring all the cattle in off the winter ranges, AI (artificially inseminate) the heifers for next year and move them onto summer pasture. So on and so on. Here are some catch up pictures. There will still be several branding posts to follow.
Long days were spent on the desert bringing the cows home.

After we AI , (artificially Inseminate) ,the heifers we take them to the Roland Ranch pasture for a month or two.
The trail was hot and the heifers were tired. Notice the purple tag. This year will be identified by that color tag.
Another job we do in May is put bulls out with the cows. Here is Hannah cutting one bull out of the pen.
Hours and hours spent on the range meant for great horse training.
This is Lady Bug. Clay has been training her for someone else. This is her 5th ride out. She did great.
We lost Dave's dad in May. He was a great man and we have felt the loss heavily. He will be missed.

That is a very brief idea of what May has been like for us. I have not kept up with it all. We have been busy. I hope to post more May branding pictures soon.
