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.
With some weather moving in we vaccinated, preg checked and branded cattle. Some friends came out and helped even though it was cold and rainy. This 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.
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.
A couple of days after this, Jonesy and I harvested our pears. Our one and only pear tree was LOADED! This is what 244 pounds of pears looks like! (Yes, I said 244 pounds!)I 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!Even 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.
