断奶和孕前检查雪。

This week the crew was weaning and preg-checking in the snow.牛仔们来下载188金宝博app安卓到我们的地方,收集牛犊,weaned,preg-checked,and culled.It was mostly sunny,but we did get a few snow flurries as they worked.Pretty chilly,too.The temps were in the teens most of the time.

Dogs are so useful when working cattle!One breaks away from the herd and boom!the dogs are after it!他们会马上把那个臭东西带回来的。我喜欢看他们工作。我希望我对工作犬和如何训练它们有更多的了解。I think I would really enjoy it.

Snow makes pretty neat photos,but in reality even gentle snowfall can be miserable when you are trotting through it.在这些地方很少会有“温和”的雪。Mostly stinging ice particles!Hard to acclimate to,for this southern girl.But look at my Jenni-girl!她在雪中疾驰而过,好像雪不在那儿似的!I want to be like her when I grow up.

Once all the cattle are in the corrals,他们把小牛从妈妈身上拣下来。My nephew is spending some time with us,and Jenni enjoys having him here to help her work cattle.They are two of a kind!😀 They are excellent help,顺便说一句。If you don't have teens at your house,you need to find some!!

我肯定很喜欢炉子里温暖的木柴。(although it did get too hot when all the下载188金宝博app安卓cowboyswere here for lunch!!) I made beef stew and fresh rolls for lunch the first day,with pineapple upside down cake for dessert.Then I made a bigger meal the second day;cheesy potatoes,烤牛肉,broccoli salad,豌豆,and cherry pie.

A Ranch-style Valentine's Day.

Ranch Poetry

Here's a little poem I wrote about a ranch style Valentine's Day.🙂 If you have ever calved heifers in the Wyoming winter,你对这场戏太了解了。

Valentine's Day

It was 2 AM and the moon was bright
When suddenly I woke up in a fright!!

我听到一个声音——可能是什么??
Bellows of pain?我得去看看。

It wasn't the kids,我能说的太多了
Standing there confused,I heard another yell!!

声音太近了——就在洗衣房外面。
I opened the door and I saw the baby!!

微小的,新生犊牛all black and slimy
I feared if I touched it my hands would be grimy!!

But its cry was so sad,它的困境如此可怜
I wanted to fix it – I tried to be helpful!!

我抓起一条旧毛巾,擦了擦那个小子。
他努力奋斗,我不知道为什么!!

我丈夫走了–我不知道在哪里,,
Maybe checking heifers in the frigid night air.

所以,I rubbed and thumped,我要他活下去
我乞求着——这是我所能给予的一切!!

过了一段时间,我的男人回来了
From tending more calves,I then learned.

A drenching bottle tucked under his arm
Colostrum powder,to be served warm.

He mixed and drenched and tried everything
But that poor baby was not responding.

So back to the barn that calf had to go
Just one of those things – but it made me feel low.

我试着睡觉,但没用
I could not sleep,could not even snooze.

My man was busy with other sick calves
‘Cause those crazy heifers do nothing by halves!!

It was nearly morning so I got up again
给我们煮了点咖啡——等着晚上结束。

当我的男人拿着一点干草进来的时候,,
We remembered as we sipped;今天是情人节!!
