After deep thought and consideration, I have decided to start a blog. After doing chores this morning I believe today is a good day to launch The Ranch Wife Chronicles. Days like today is what being a Ranch Wife is all about.
Last night we had a major winter storm hit. We have over a foot of snow and it is still snowing. The roll of a Ranch Wife during inclement weather conditions is to assist her Husband caring for the livestock and making sure he is well fed.
Here are some pictures from chores this morning.
Yesterday we were walking on brown ground.
We brought the yearlings into the lots last night. It is always good to wake up in the morning and know where those adventurous animals are.
We started calving first calf heifers last week. J had several calves last night. You know the Old Farmer’s Tail about low pressure.
Roxie got to help me open gates and cut twine off bales while we fed cows.
It is well worth the work when we walk in the barn and see new babies warm and snuggled in next to thier mothers; especially when their mothers love them.
Now, I must take Molly out to the bathroom. This is a job I have to do by hand or she will go on the sidewalk. Papa is NEVER impressed when Pretty Girl goes on the sidewalk.
