New ewes at Powder Flat

Julie Hansmire talking sheep

We recently bought a nice set of Merino yearling ewes from Colorado producer Julie Hansmire. We loaded the ewes near Edwards and trucked them to our headquarters at Powder Flat.

That haystack looks pretty tasty!

Almost time for fall romance

Sunset over the Lemmons Meadow

 

The purebred Hampshire ewes are down from their summer pasture on the Johnson Ranch in the Routt NAfational Forest. It is almost time for the bucks to join them so they can have baby lambs in After a few weeks of romancing the ladies, the bucks return to their bachelor ways.

Ladies in waiting

Heifers on the go

Sorting heifers

 

We sold one truckload of heifers so it was time to sort and load them. After weeks of dry weather, fire in the forest and smoke in the valley, we’ve had rain. It has settled the dust and greened up our brittle grasses. The Big Red Fire did a lot of good, this week’s rain is doing a lot of good, and the first frost which came last night is just a few days ahead of the Equinox. Fall is here, and the cooler weather is welcome.
