I often give an update on my hens, but haven’t been very good about sharing pictures of them. I enjoy watching the girls peck around and waddle across the yard. It’s relaxing to watch them be chickens. Here are a few shots I captured of my red hens.
Over the last four years of blogging I have shared many aspects of life on our South Dakota cattle ranch. I have shared “My Life” from recipes, to books, to Ag issues, and my personal photography. I have tried to share “Everything In Between” from places I’ve visited, events I have attended and my attempt to be creative. Thank You to all for being dedicated followers and for sharing your thoughts in the comments section. I appreciate your support.
This week one of my favorite people celebrates a birthday. “That Cowboy Lady” I call Mom is one in a million. She is much more than my Mom, she is my friend, a mentor and someone who I admire in many ways.
J and I got everything moved around so the heifers are in the calving pasture. We are watching the girls close, especially since cold temps have returned. I have the 5:00 am check and am adjusting to going to be earlier and getting up at five. I love the quiet time in the morning to think and prepare for the day.
One of my favorite winter things is sales. J takes in many sales via internet and television; it’s fun to catch sales that we can’t attend in person. J watches bull sales and tunes in to sale barn feeder calf sales. On cold afternoons I hear the chant of two or three auctioneers and see J taking it all in. Technology is a wonderful way to stay on top of the markets.
How was your weekend?
