It’s a cold, snowy day out there. The screamin’ wind makes it quite miserable. I am glad I can stay indoors today. But we are ever so thankful for the moisture.
Photo taken during a previous storm in Feb. 2013 There’s actually a lot more snow today.
Silly me, I thought I would just drive the car out and get the mail…I forgot that wind = drifts. I made as far as around the house, when my car sank to the axle in snow. I gave up on the mail.
Now, as you can see in the photo, I DO have a 4×4. A nice, reliable Suburban. Which I love. But I am in such a habit of driving my gas-sipper of a car, that I totally never thought of taking the Suburban! Oh well. Maybe someday I will learn.
I have a request to make of you…
I entered a photo in the “Beef Farms in Focus” contest, and it made finalist. I would love to win the fun prizes, so I am asking you, (pretty please!) if you would go to: http://www.alltech.com/contest-photo/brandin-iron and click on the little yellow thumbs-up to cast your vote for my photo!
The photo was taken here at the ranch we work on, and the man in the middle (holding the calf’s leg) is My Cowboy.
Thanks a bunch!
EDIT:: I just wanted to let you all know that I won the contest! Thanks for your help.
My Cowboy had to push some heifers a couple miles today, (known in some places as a cattle drive) so one of our friends came up for the day to help. Of course, our kids helped, too. Here they come…Right-Left: Heidi, Frank, and Cliff.
I had the little girls with me, and was in my car – parked up on the side of the road, well out of the way. But these heifers…as soon as they glimpsed me, they came straight for me. Cattle are so curious. Especially young stock.
My boy. Ridin a fuzzy ole mustang.
Heidi keeping her side in line. It was one cold day to be riding.
They ended up being one kids-horse short. So Jenni traded places with Frank half-way thru the ride. I love the pink. Let’s hear it for cowgirls!
One day this week My Cowboy asked if I could help him get a heifer into the barn. These heifers are a bit feisty, so I was running the gate for him. Anyways, I took the chance to snap some photos of the cute lil calves.
Awww. Melt my heart…
This lil guy wandered away from where he was supposed to be, so My Cowboy just picked him up and tucked him under his arm and took him back to mama.
