Spring Ranch Work

Sorry no pictures today; I'll have to write instead. Other than a few drifts, the snow is pretty much melted off. We have been seeing temperatures in the fifties. Yesterday it was 55. It is really wet and the grass is starting to green up.
Last Friday we brought our younger cows home from the river. We had to ride from Buck's because of the mud, so it was a good twelve-mile ride.
On Tuesday, we gathered the yearlings and brought them in. We then sorted the heifers off from the steers. After that was done, we put the heifers out in their pasture and put the steers in the trap (small pasture) for the night. We combined the herd bulls with the steers as well.
Wednesday we gathered the bulls and the steers out of the trap and took them to the river. It was another long ride (over twelve miles), but it went well and it was warm.

I've been messing around with the design of the blog. I think I'm happy with the design now, but I need to get a new header for it. The one that is up now must be over three years old. I also added a 'Follow by Email' gadget on the top right of the page. Type in your email and push 'Submit' and you should receive email notices whenever we update the blog.
