The weather was predicted to be warm this week. Well I say fire that weather person! Cold air has settled into our valley causing an inversion.
Cowboys don't get the luxury of calling off due to bad weather.
As the calves get a little older and are able to travel a little bit, we move them and their moms to another pasture.
You can see that the ground conditions were less than perfect. It was quite icy and slick.
The frost from the fog was pretty.
The fog lifted and it got up to about 30 degrees. A real heat wave.
The fog was today. A few days ago we did have some sunshine.
Moving the little calves is slow and takes some patience.
They don't always choose the right trail. OOPS
Sometimes they need a little help.
We are lucky to have saved as many calves as we did in the terrible weather that we've had. But as the snow slowly melts we are finding more and more loss.
But to leave you on a good note here is one of the cute survivors. We have done all that we could for these babies and I wish we hadn't lost any. Losing them doesn't get any easier.
