My biggest kid (Travis) and I rode through the pairs this morning. It was a perfect spring morning, slightly overcast and cool. Just right for trotting out first thing in the morning. Our circles are quite a bit smaller these days. When we were first married, we trotted out 20 miles in the morning, just to get to the cows, then rode through them and came home. Now our BLM seedings are about the size of our wrangle pasture we had at Sheep Creek. My brother Casey will tell you I am exaggerating, but ask Travis! Calves looked great, all fat and happy. We got back to the trailer just before the storm hit!
It has been a long day and about to get longer! After unsaddling and a quick lunch I headed to the sitter's to pick up my littlest kids and headed for town. We went to 3 different stores before I found any flowers for my grandma and aunt. Quin pulled the blooms off of one and Trent sat on the other. Was I ever happy when the both fell asleep on the ride home!
We are supposed to get 100 truckloads of yearlings tonight (okay Casey, that was an exaggeration!), and it's supposed to rain and snow all day tomorrow. So, not only am I on the processing crew, but also lunch detail. I best get going, have to get my sourdough start going, beans cooking in the crock pot, and come up with some kind of dessert, so goes the life of a ranch wife! =)
