How’s the Water!

What a rancher does for his livestock. No he’s not drinking. He is blowing down the overflow to unplug it. I couldn’t resist a great photo opportunity. I’m sure he will thank me later, or sooner. Lol


When it’s hot out, checking water is crucial to the health and well being of all livestock. Keeping everything open and flowing correctly takes staying on top of how the tanks are working. 

Great Day in the Mountains


Yesterday we headed up the mountain to fix fence near Friend Park at the base of Laramie Peak. We moved our heifers up the other day, so it was time to run around another section in case they jump in. 

It was a beautiful day with storm clouds rolling in and out. A little rain, but not too much. The best part I didn’t see one person trespassing! I have come to loathe going up the mountain because it is a constant running people down or having to tell people they are on private property. Sometimes I even see their posts on Facebook, clearly showing where they were. I’m always just mind boggled by this. I would love to take my 4wheeler through their front yard and around the back leave open gates and let their animals out. Maybe then they would comprehend the concept of trespassing. 

That is why I would just rather go somewhere else. However fences have to be fixed, so we have to go up. Yesterday was awesome in that regard. I didn’t see anyone and it was a peaceful break.
