Happy Easter! I hope you have a joyous and wonderful day.
I am sharing a few more pictures from last week’s Wintery Weekend.
Due to the drought we are currently experiencing, we have received very little rain and snow. We need water to nourish our prairie grasses, farm land, and to fill dams.
I am submitting this picture for Tuesday Muse Meme with Nancy at. I used the Argo texture.
Most of our dams are basically empty. This dam is in our winter pasture.
Dams like these are not fresh and are an unreliable source of water for our livestock. This is the same dam as the first picture.
Over time wood posts get a weathered look to them. They have to withstand the elements year in and year out.
This time of year baby calves are an everyday ordinary thing. The cows are starting to keep us busy. Between checking cows, tagging calves, moving pairs and dealing with calving issues we are constantly on the move.
I am submitting this picture for Texture Tuesday at. I used the Cherish texture.
We continue to pray for water, rain or snow, we will take it. Fresh water resources are a priority for our livestock. We rely on dams in a few of our summer pastures, if the water is bad we have to adjust our grazing plan. Dealing with weather is an ordinary part of our lives. We work in the elements everyday. The success or failure of our crops depends on the weather. If we will have grass to graze this summer depends on the moisture we receive this spring. There is a chance for moisture today; we are optimistic.
