I haven't fallen all the way off the face of the earth, but close. Here is a blog touching on our very busy spring work.
May 1st we AI, (artificially inseminate), our heifers. When they have been bred we move them onto "greener pastures". This is where they will spend most of their summer.
We are busy in the spring bringing all the cattle in off of the desert. This makes for a lot of long hard days in the saddle. Moving momma cows and their babies can be really hard work.
This spring we had some crazy weather. It snowed the end of May and cool rainy weather into June. The green grass on the desert was amazing, even if I complained about the cold, just a little.
When we bring our East herd home, we go across what we call a "hard pan". This always makes for cool pictures.
And of course we have multiple barndings to get all of the calves processed.
Another busy busy spring. Thanks to all of the good help, we got it done again. Happy summer!
