Last week I mentioned an overnight business trip to check on the progress of our little herd of cattle.
Some time I'll have to tell you about the trip itself, 'cause it was a doozy! But for now...
Here is part of the ranch; the area where the cattleman works his horses.
Horses on this ranch, you see, are vital. You could die pretty easily in a rollover accident on a 4-wheeler in this range land.
Horses can carefully pick their way down these cliffs.
Other wildlife are pretty good at it, too. I heard there are bears and cougars on this ranch, but mercifully we didn't run into any of them.
This is what we came to see!
Mamas and babies are pretty well bonded.
The calves are chubby and fat.
Coats are sleek and shiny.
Lookin' good, sir.
We'll stay away from those!
Yep... everything looks good!
