Still Around

Post by Randi » Thu Dec 27, 2018 11:43 pm

Wow, it's been a long time since I've browsed this board! There have been a lot of new developments in the last year, that have kept us quite busy. The two main ones are a bunch more land and cattle.
Image

Last Feb/Mar we increased the herd by about 100 more head....then had quite a calving season. Not that we had a lot of problems, but...COLD...which makes for a lot of work.

The summer was spent fencing, building a workable set of corals at the new place, trying to scrape up enough feed, as we had quite a drought, and dealing with pink eye in 3 out of 4 herds.

Image

Image

Fall was spent, as usual, moving, weighing, preg checking cows, and working at the local Stockyards.


We were privileged to host a couple of ladies from Germany and New Zealand through late summer and fall as well. And 2 from eastern Canada in the spring.

And finally, now we are busy gathering, getting the cows all home for the winter and Scour vaccinating them all.

Good to hear from you Randi, glad you are not hanging around idle. Is the new place far from your home place?

Loved your terrific pics and very happy for your expansion. But let's cut to the chase...if that's a pure bred Kelpie I'm all ears!
