I'm on a roll with Colt and Gus...I got them worked three days in a row! We were supposed to sort pairs at the 3J Ranch today, but after yesterday's snow, they're holding off until Monday when it's supposed to be 68 degrees...I'm good with that!! Last year we pushed a small herd into the wind and snow, and it didn't go too well...we got them there, but once we left them at the watering hole, the cows and calves 'bout beat us back to the ranch!
We had about 2 inches yesterday mornin', but by noon it was meltin' off pretty good. As usual, the snow makes everything look pretty.

This lil' one should have been inside instead of under the birdhouse!
|Snowy Mornin' 7:00 AM|
The sun was just starting to come up while I was out feeding.
|Pastures are gettin' green! |
1:00 PM Snow's almost gone.
I decided to put my good saddle on Gus yesterday for the first time, and I'm glad I did. My rope was coiled up on it like usual, and when he started to trot around the circus pole, he thought it was a boogie man that was gonna get him. It only took him a couple of minutes to get used to it floppin' and making a slappin' noise. I've worked him on the circus pole all three days and rode him two days in the round pen. I think we're ready to get out to the arena today.
|Wind in the Mane|
We're headin' out for a long trot to the end of our property
then back to the arena for some work.
I'm linking up with Nancy and Lisa today for Rural Thursday.
