Winter in Laradise

19 Jan

Laramie cows


There’s a reason recent blog posts have been mostly of sheep. In the winter, the sheep stay relatively near (100 miles) to the Home Ranch. Most of the cows go to spend the winter eating hay at the Spiegelberg Ranch near Laramie. A couple of days ago, granddaughter Siobhan, a student at the University of Wyoming in Laramie, went to visit the cows, including our summer nurse cow, Loralie. Here’s Siobhan’s photos of the winter cows.

    Loralie is beautiful. All the cows are here now and I love to see them. One of the Angus guys has acquired a couple of bulls. The Carolais (sp) guy has also acquired a bull. My little herd (“my” used very loosely) of Herefords LIVE with their bull, but they also never leave the valley and go up to the mountains like all the others do. Their bull is as calm and curious as the ladies are. It’s kind of cool being an agriculture appreciator. I’m sure those hard-working ranchers have no idea how happy their livestock makes me.
