But I have a few photos to share and that will be good enough for this time. I don't always remember to take photos, but went through them the other day and thought it was kind of a funny mix. I often save photos or meme's etc that I find on the internet, so I thought I'd just share ones that I've taken/saved day by day. Some are a bit random, so bear with me, this is as entertaining for me as you. :)
Sweet Ava and the boys
Helping in the barn
This calf was born (naturally!) with a condition called hydrocephalus, or 'water on the brain'. We ended up having to put him down as he could not stand and had no suckle reflex. Amazing. Hope I never see it again.
March 21st. Smart babies in the shelter.
This has been the winter that never ends....
From the light of my head lamp.
Was told about an option on my phone that tracks steps.
Remind me about this simple, easy ranching life I lead again....
Oh yeah, it all about the lifestyle.
Momma and baby
The 'orphans'...the two on the left are from twin sets and the one on the right was taken off of one of our bought heifers. I don't mind a bit of wild, but when the cow grows fangs, hammers fences and smashes gates trying to get to your blood.....well, she needs a new home. We've had some really great heifers calve out of that group we bought last fall. And a disappointing number of ones that will never see another spring on this ranch. A good reminder of why we prefer to keep our own......
It sure does.
Magalie and her helper "Mitch"
Fun in the hay.
So nice to have their laughter and energy around the ranch.
Our new milk cow "Magnolia" filling the extra bellies.
Yes, April 6th.
Plowing snow today, April 6th.
Come on Mother Nature, we could use just a bit of a break...
