Saturday night our second winter storm arrived. We got 2-3″ of snow with howling winds and cold. Saturday and Sunday nights we were checking cows all night. We are thankful for the moisture and that the cows have slowed down calving.
I walked out and took this picture Sunday afternoon. It’s a challenge to take pictures when there are ice pellets hitting my face. When we are out on the 4-wheelers gathering pairs and checking calves over for health, photography takes a back seat.
On Monday afternoon the sun came out. It was brisk, but we saw temps in the low 30’s and snow was melting. Late afternoon I checked the cows and strolled over to the oldest bunch of calves to get this picture.
This picture was taken last Saturday and edited with the Skies Laundry Day (top) and Organic Paper (bottom) textures from Nancy at.
More snow is in the forecast. More cows need to calve. More pairs need to be moved to pasture group #3. Chores, laundry and meals must be attended to.
This Ranch Wife is short of words today. Have a wonderful day … I think it’s Tuesday!
