OOPS, WHERE DID I GO?
Wow, I can not believe I haven't posted since February. Time really flies. I think my lack of blogging may be due to the fact, that this drought is just sad and demoralizing. The dust and wind never end.
February led to March and we moved cows on the dry desert. We decreased the number of cows that we wintered out this year. The ones we had out did surprisingly well.
We got a skiff of snow on the range in April, and it was pretty cold for most of the month.
April led into May. It was time to bring the cattle home and get the calves processed.
We had a great branding crew again this year.

Along with getting all the calves processed in May, we also AI, (artificially inseminate ), our heifers.
Then just like that it was June. I don't think I even took a picture. I'm sure the cowboys were busy.
And now it's July. We started weaning early this year. The cowboys start well before the sun is up to beat the heat.
I've enjoyed taking these early morning pictures.
In September we will start preg-checking and unfortunately we will probably have to sell more cows.
We have great help in training.
Keep praying for rain.

Hi, I picked up your card at the general store in Baker this morning and just started to look at your pictures. What a wonderful unique view you have of cattle ranching life. Nice work! I’m curious how you shoot. It looks like you are on horseback so how do you deal with the camera when you are not shooting?

I am so glad you came to Baker and I got to meet you, and I am so sorry to have been reluctant to call. Lesson learned. Please come back for a visit. I will try to continue blogging and photographing our way of life. It was a pleasure meeting you.
