Well after an unseasonable hot and smoky summer , it seems the air is clearing finally, we did have a lot of rain to go with it , but the air quality has been brutal. It did make some pretty pictures.
We did get the hay up , what there was of it, although we got rain we also had grasshoppers. Floods, fires, pestilence... if 4 guys show up on horseback I am out!
all that said, now that the air is clearer and its cooler, we have ben working a little more outside with the horses. Mel has been around (for the OG's who remember Almighty Marshmellow) helping out a few days a week.
Little Miss Ransom is growing up nicely. And for the first time in the history of me, all of my registrations and stallion reports through this year are complete!
Renters cattle are enjoying the lush greeenery . we have done a lot more in the rotation and putting out salt than normal but quiet cows like this it is easy work
Little brother Frankie is upping his game though and has so much better focus this year, we are able to trust his recall and manners enough that in the open areas he works really well, even holding on command. Tighter spaces still need work, and his singleminded focus that all animals must be in a group regardless of how many fences they need to go through to be in said group s fading.
Although, Henry, the only 3 legged golden retriever cow dog I know , may have cow bossed too close to the sun and couple days and needed to tlc and rest
Its a process
Hope all are safe and well and enjoying the [;easant fall weather.
Until next time
