Welcome to our ranch near Canada's west coast in Beautiful British Columbia's West Chilcotin mountain region. Where calling the vet means hollering back at the house to bring your kit, new friendships are formed from the back of a horse and true fun for a five year old is getting a machete for Christmas. Where 'cutting the dinks off' has a totally different meaning than what first comes to mind, Muck Boots are a household name, a hand shake still means something and the coffee is always on.

A Photo a Day

With this years season being so incredibly busy so far, I just can't seem to find the time to write in the blog.  Any extra moments are spent reading to the kids, doing laundry or paying bills.  Or maybe even a little wee nap, although those have been few and far between.  Most of my time is spent going around and around between the barns and pens.  We had 40 in just over 24 hours.....  That's quite a few for us and our system.  It won't keep up like this, but meanwhile, we are certainly running ragged.
 I recently read about an Ontario farmer who posted a photo a day for one year.  What a great idea!  I can do that.....  they won't get posted every single day, but I should be able to keep up pretty well.  
And of course I will write my usual posts as well, but this should take the pressure off a little.  

So here is my official 'first' Photo of the Day.  
Taken at 2am this morning.....

  I love this shot.  Walking through the pens on my check, I heard the tell tale sounds of a momma cow welcoming her new baby.  My headlamp beam soon found the proud momma and somehow a great photo came about.  No editing, just taken from the light of my headlamp.

Cheers all!
