Babies on the Ground

Cows and calves, Squaw Mountain

 

 

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, we have lot of new baby calves being born. We’ve had some fresh snow, but the temperatures are decent and the mamas are doing a good job. It warms the heart to see these new babies!

Ready to brand

Bringing in the cows and calves

 

It finally stopped raining long enough to allow us to brand some calves. Clouds were threatening, but with lots of good help, we got through them. They were, as my Dad used to say, “Big enough to get ahold of.”

Fall Gather

The cows and their calves have happily spent the last three months grazing on the Routt and Medicine Bow National Forest. October 1st is the off date for our Forest grazing permit. Friends and family help us as we bring the cattle down from their summering grounds.

Castle Rock Haiku

Sentinel towers,
Battlements rise, keeping watch
Over cows and calves.
