Spring Revival!

Antelope on Brown’s Hill

Faithful blog followers may have noticed that posts on “Ranch News” have been fewer and more basic lately. This was largely due to technical difficulties. My faithful laptop went on to that great recycling center in the sky, and I had to learn, sort of, to post on my husband’s wonderful, but unfamiliar, Mac. When I added the new version of Photoshop Elements, I discovered that the newer and fancier upgrade was likewise unfamiliar. Hence the changes you have observed.

But all this is in the past! After much study, I purchased a new laptop. I finally gave up and called the Adobe help desk, where the nice gentleman explained to me how to revert to the familiar “Classic Editor” posting format, which makes it easy to do more editing.

My new tools allow me to resume my former style of posting lots of medium size photos, with, I hope, enlightening and witty text.

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!

We woke up this morning to almost a foot of fresh snow. We are starting to get some calves on the ground (or in the snowbank!) but yesterday’s wind had quit and it is pretty warm. This good wet snow will do us a lot of good.
