Fall is one of my favorite times of the year (just like calving in the winter, branding in the spring, and doctoring all summer)! The leaves are turning and fall works are in full swing, and I'm trying not to miss a thing! We've been shipping out calves and yearlings, pregging heifers, and have brought the cows home. We still have a lot to get done before it snows. I don't think that will happen anytime soon though!
October has been beautiful! I helped the cowboss ride a couple of days last week and just loved it. Cool, crisp mornings and frisky horses make my day! Animals are pretty healthy around here though, we haven't hardly roped a thing!
The cowboss got a new horse last week. We named him "Tater" and the cowboss was quite impressed with him after he road him the first time. He's a good looking horse, quick on his feet, and wants to watch a cow. We even roped a yearling that day and he worked the rope awesome. He rode him again on Friday, and I guess I missed one helluva bronc ride! "Tater" might take a few more miles before I get on him!
This coming week we are shipping out several truckloads of bred heifers,weaning, and processing our calves. No rest for the wicked, but looking forward to every minute of it! Don't let your powder cake. =)
