The first colt of the season

Dirte and her new colt

Dirte and her new colt

The weather is still trying to make up its mind. Is it Still Winter? Almost Spring? Spring? But Eamon’s mare Dirte made up her mind that it was time to deliver her colt. We still haven’t gotten close enough to determine whether it is a filly or a horse colt. The trees are trying to decide if it is safe to send out buds. In the meantime, the calves, lambs and colts are making their appearance. It must be spring!

Fall Filly

Pat's mare Plata did not foal in June with the other mares. She is an older mom, and took her time. Maeve called, saying, "Grandpa--Plata had a filly and she is black with a diamond on her forehead!" Pat asked Maeve what she wanted to name the baby and she said "Diamond."

Gathering cows off the Med Bow

cows not wanting to leave the Forest

and we have to leave the Forest because???

October 1st is our off date for the cows on the Medicine Bow National Forest grazing allotment. We have had a blessedly wet summer, so we are leaving plenty of feed behind. The days have been warm, so the cows see no reason to leave to Forest. Still, we have to gather them and trail them into Sheep Mountain, our contiguous private land pasture. Good grass awaits them there. The next project is to work the cows and calves.
