Trailin' Pairs to Summer Pasture

Colt and I headed over to the Temple Ranch on Wednesday for a wonderful day of trailin' cows and calves. It was perfect weather...not too hot and a lil' breeze.

We moved about 90 pair.

Resting at a watering hole.

Calves and dogs enjoyed some cooling off!

Colt was kinda spooked by this dog in the trough...
Every time the dog moved, all that slime moved too.
I think it's time to clean out that trough!

This pup is doing a good job keeping the calf in line.

Colt's keeping his eye on the herd...can't
let any of those pesky lil' calves try to turn back!
BTW, he really is working well in the hackamore.

Father and son at the end of the day...waiting for
cows and calves to mother up.

Wow, how much fun.

I had our whole herd of heifers get out once and I was riding. I got all of em back into the man door on the barn, in an english saddle no less that day hahahah.

Great post and great pictures! Dogs, cows and horses together - that dog in the trough was going to be one slimy pup!

That is going to be one dirty dog when he gets out of that trough! Stinky too!
Looks like a great day! I'd love to do that someday!

That dog in the trough is hilarious! They do grow their own brand of slime, pretty quickly, too! It looked like a gorgeous sunny day to get some work done!

Mikey said...

Mmmm, all beautiful pictures. I'm so jealous...

btw, I've been meaning to say, your header picture is to drool for. What a gorgeous saddle!

That one dog was having way too much fun in that yucky green water trough! I love it!! What a fun ride! I am glad colt is working so well in his hack!! Colt is such a good boy. You have done a great job with him.

Glad you got to take Colt out and work some cows! He is such a handsome man! That trough is nasty!

Way to go cindy Sue! THat thing is almost as big as she is! LOL! Shelby is a killing machine too! Mice, moles, hates squirrels! I've seen her lay at the bottom of a tree for hours!

Jocelyn said...

eeewww that trough is gross! I would freak out toO!

Well, it looks like our drill team is a bust. Long Story, but they are too flaky and change things last minute and I'm up to that with my busy schedule! I am so bummed, but I'll find something else for me and Star to do!

Looks like Colt was having a good time though!
