It's Sunday afternoon and we are officially done with week one of calving and week one on the ranch! It's hard to explain everything, so I will start with some pictures. It's been a great experience and I am looking forward to the next 4 weeks.
The sunrise and sunset here is amazing, everyday without fail. I can't seem to take enough photos of it!
It's cold here and wet! This fire is the only source of heat in this little house has and I love coming home to a warm house!
The view out my front porch. Yes, I agree it's tough to look at!
Moving heifers to be processed a few days ago. Red dirt, blue sky and black cows. I am not sure it gets better than that!
Amelia- My bottle calf, who was only an orphan for 2 days! She found a mother and is happily playing in the field.
My 21st birthday was on June 6th. Pete and Donna, who are employees for Lawsons made me leg of lamb for dinner. I am so blessed to feel at home with this family and it's only been a week.
You all should know, I have a soft spot for lambs! :)
Freeze branding, new to me and I already don't like it! I miss the sound and smells of real branding. Every cow is in the chute for over 15 minutes just to get a brand on her! Where are the hot irons?
It's honestly beautiful here.
My ride! I have put over 100 kilometers on this bike over the past week. Most of you know my father, who firmly believes in horses over bikes and after this week I have to agree with him
I will keep you all updated about how the next few weeks go!
