What’s Been Happening at CBR

I can’t believe it’s been over 2 weeks since I did a blog post!  This little break was not intentional, no, not at all.  Life just sometimes happens and there just isn’t enough hours in a day.  But it’s all good…

Here is some of what has been going on around here.

023With some weather moving in we vaccinated, preg checked and branded cattle.  Some friends came out and helped even though it was cold and rainy.  028This is the first time we have used our state certified brand, so we were very excited.  It turned out great!  The cows as well as the horses were branded.025027horse brand

There is a lot that goes into preparing for a day of working cattle.  Everything from scheduling the vet, getting the cattle and supplies arranged, to feeding the crew.  At about noon, we all took a break and had chili  that I had made the day before.019

A couple of days after this, Jonesy and I harvested our pears.  Our one and only pear tree was LOADED!  003016This is what 244 pounds of pears looks like!  (Yes,  I said 244 pounds!)018I will be doing a lot of canning and jam making!

Last week I was able to go camping and trail riding with some friends.  The fall colors along the trail were spectacular!  My horse always takes good care of me and hanging out with these girls was so much fun!057Even though the last few weeks have been busy, there have been so many blessings mixed in. Everything from how well things went when we worked cows, a bountiful harvest of pears, to making memories with friends.

I’ll leave you with some of the beautiful scenery from the trail.045039119

      Good question. Actually, we want our brand out there so people know where good quality ranch horses come from. When someone sees our brand they will know that horse came from our ranch. As we are in the business of training and selling ranch horses it is a way to get our name out there.
