Last week, I helped the 3J Ranch move pairs from one field to another. I hadn't ridden in that area before. The land is on the edges of the Malhuer Lake and there are numerous sloughs...which made it quite interesting and a little more challenging.
|Can't beat this view! The sun just lit up the grass heads.|
|Moving cow/calf pairs through the slough waters of Malhuer Lake.|
|As we move the cows through the sloughs, the base gets deeper and deeper.|
We chose to cross where the cows had not been, and it was still plenty deep.
|Rastus had a ball in the water!! Yahoo!!|
|It looked like a grass sea with the cows moving through...sometimes|
you couldn't even see the cows!
|It didn't take long for Rastus to dry out in the 75 degree heat.|
One happy cow dog...I'm getting better with my commands...
it's a lot of fun to have a good horse and a good dog!
It's been unusually warm this fall, but there's snow and rain in our forecast! I guess I will sadly put away my patio furniture this weekend...sigh...
