Lower Yellowstone Irrigation Canal Washout

Yesterday the canal washed out south of Savage. Today when we were flying over to bale hay, we swung by and checked it out. They had already been working on it when we saw it.

It caused a lot of damage to the fields below.

This was a hay field.

So was this. It had all been cut and was in windrows.

Not a pretty sight.

The hay was pushed to this side of the field.

Ranch work

We've been pretty busy this month with cattle work. Getting them in for our brandings, branding, and moving them out after our brandings. The cattle work is almost done, so now we are going to be haying.

Here is a picture I took while we were fencing. Of course, I realized too late it was going to hit us and we got wet on the way back.

Here we are moving steers.

Interesting clouds.

Dad on Jack.

Trailing the cows to the river.

Dad, Jack, Jessi, Smoky, Danny, Dundee, Mom, Poco.

We've been really busy going to brandings and getting ready for ours. I'll probably post some pictures from the brandings after things slow down a bit.

I took these pictures about a week ago after a small shower came through.
