Post by Randi » Fri Dec 28, 2018 11:22 pm

I had trouble keeping up with the lead cow.

And todays bunch we gathered on 1/2 section, and they get hauled home. We had no trouble, they were ready!

We got about 1/2 home today and should get the rest tomorrow morning. Then they get vaccinated probably tomorrow afternon and trailed 1.5 miles to the winter pasture.

It was -9 C the day I was riding. But mostly we have been warmer than that so far this year. Last year it was -35 C at this time. We are expecting some above freezing temps for the next week or so. We have had about a foot of snow. But just right around here. You get an hour away and theres almost no snow.
