This was New Year's Eve. We ended the year right by taking the last of the desert cows out to the range.
It was plenty cold that day.
By the end of January we started calving our heifers. The weather started out pretty nice for the first bunch of babies to be born.
We still had some orphan calves though.
Sometimes a mother has to be put in a corral to be reunited with her baby.
You can't tell by the pictures, but the weather turned pretty cold and very windy.
We take the calves and their mommas to another pasture when they are a couple of days old. This helps us keep track of things and the heifers from being more confused.
It's slow going with such little calves.
That's me on Gaucho.
The wind keeps blowing, not much snow, but plenty cold.
The miracle of life.
And today, this happened!
The work goes on no matter the weather.
Dave's face after me telling him, I'll send someone if he needs something.. haha. Right.
Warm before the storm. Till next time. Stay warm!
