It has been another busy week. The Rancher and I started the week by planting corn. Mid-week we had our second branding. Now, we are getting ready to move pairs to summer grass. All of this combined with High School Graduation, warm temps and blossoming trees are sure signs of spring.
I was so excited when I came upon these three calves during chores last week. I love the contrast between the green soap weeds, blue sky and black calves.
Corn planting is a sign of spring. We don’t have many acres of corn and we got it seeded without major problems. The Rancher checks to make sure the planter is working correctly by digging in the soil. A Rancher’s hands are subject to dirt under his finger nails.
I took this picture looking through the fence. Most cattle are curious animals.
This is another one of the neighbor’s dogs. I think he looks cuddly with all that fuzzy fur.
My little cuddle bug got to go for a ride last week. I think she enjoyed herself! Molly spending more time outside is a sign of spring as she is not a fan of cold weather.
As I finish up the post, the best sign of spring is rain. I am listening to the much needed rain we have been praying for!
