Very interesting. I have been wondering if you would share with me, How many dogs do you have ? And how many horses? I spent 30yrs in the horse shoeing business and kept sled dogs for years. The most dogs at one time was 72.
Thank You and keep up the good work !

We have about 50 dogs,about half Border collies and half livestock Guardian dogs. We buy a pallet of dog food every two weeks. We have about 60 horses. We do most of our own shoeing. Thanks for the kind words!

I live in California and right now I have 4.25 inches in the rain gauge. It is wonderful right now as our grass year gets a big boost. I am from a commercial cattle ranch and grass is a driving force. Hope you get the moisture your need for a successful year.

Your post about the need for rain got me to thinking about the farmers/ranchers where I now live,United Arib Emeritaes. Very little rain fall, then patchy. One man told me it has not rained at his home in over 4yr. The only green here is watered every day. They feed hauled in feed to everything. Tree trimmings for the camels and hay for the sheep and goats. wtaer is delivered every week.

Wonderful blog that brings back a wave of nostalgia. Wife, Misako, and I lived in Baggs for 3 years when I worked as a mud engineer for Magcobar. Clayton and Elizabeth Jons were our daughter Melissa’s Godparents. I remember the Salisburys and everyone in the valley as very warm and welcoming. Thank you.
