I found this calf yesterday while checking water that wasn't feeling very good.  See how his right ear is tipping down.  Damn good sign there is a problem.  I managed to get him in and doctor him.  Hopefully all will be well now.  Taken 7/21/2007.

It finally got dry enough to ship the second semi load of drys, with some old bulls, out of here.  I had quite a few more drys than normal this year thanks to the extremely dry year last year and tough calving season this spring.  That's the breaks though.  You have a routing of selling all the cows with no calves you keep it up and sell them.  Taken 6/19/2007.

Getting ready to brand the old cows calves.  We branded the last of the calves up the other day.  old cows and late calvers.  The youngest of these old cows is 14 years old and the oldest was 19.  That's damned old for a cow.  Taken 6/9/2007.

Gathered up some drys, cows that have no calves, and late calvers to sell.  I have a semi load that will go out this afternoon and be on the auction tomorrow.  Next week or the week after there will be another load to go out.  That is one load to many.  Between the late snowstorm and the dry year last year things didn't work out to well.  Taken 5/14/2007.

Cows and calves lolling around a rock formation after getting kicked out to the hills.  They are really scattering out and looking good.  I didn't have as many calves as I would have liked, the dry year last year and the late snow storm really knocked my numbers.  That's the breaks, means more replacement heifers to keep this fall.  Taken 4/18/2007.

Pushing cows up to the corner where I can sort pairs out to the hills.  The green color this year is stunning.  I just wish the grass was growing faster.  Taken 4/18/2007.

Gathering cows in the fog to work them out to the hills.  I don't see fog around here very often so it's not something I normally deal with.  Taken 4/24/2007.
