While a few are still dealing with snow, the signs of spring are everywhere here at CBR! Most days are still crisp with a couple of warm humid ones mixed in. Here are 6 ways you know it’s spring on the ranch. (In no particular order).
Spring is a good time to burn off fields and pastures. This is done to release nutrients in the ground, gets rid of weeds and brush, it kills tics and other unwanted pests. Plus, it makes the grass green up real pretty.
Spring is when the horses start saying good-bye to their winter coats. Let me tell ya…that’s a lot of hair. You always want to make sure not to wear chapstick or lip gloss while brushing a shedding horse!
You know it’s spring when you drive in to town and all the pastures are dotted with baby calves. Our spring babies start coming in early March. I love to watch them run and play!
