Here is a barn I saw on the way back into Hill City from our attempt to climb Harney Peak. I pulled over on the side of the road to capture these shots. I like the barn shape and background. I do wonder about all the busses.
It was a busy weekend for this gal. I tend to bake and cook on Saturday morning. I made Whatchamacallit Bars, crock pot “roasted” a chicken for Chicken Tortilla Soup and Onion Bread Sticks. I also tried to make strawberry turnovers, but we won’t be talking about that.
After last Wednesday and Thursday’s 60 mph winds and gusts up to 80 mph, our yard was full of sticks and twigs. Saturday afternoon I went to picking up sticks and raked the yard. Between the dog doo and cactus it was a dangerous job. J helped me haul my piles out on Sunday.
Saturday, J and his Dad spent most of the day helping Cousin T move cattle home from grass.
Sunday afternoon we moved the yearling heifers. Upon gathering the girls J saw two head with porcupine quills. We ran them in and pulled out the quills and trailed them to a new pasture. Later in the afternoon J and his folks moved some pairs to get ready to bring cattle home from grass.
This morning we moved pairs home from summer grass. It was a brisk morning with a few sprinkles. By the time we made it in for dinner, it was 38*. With a little moisture Miss B and I decided to burn. Between the dry conditions and wind our garbage has accumulated rapidly. It amazes me how much trash two households of two people can accumulate.
Have you moved cattle home from summer grass? Have you weaned or sold calves yet?
