Guess What Day It Is?

Don't you just love this day?
It brings a whole new meaning to Monday!

It's been a busy time on the ranch.
Lots of babies being born.

Actually, we are only 6 babies away from completing our spring calving season.
That's something to lick your nose about!
Every calving season since the house fire has been 6 months or more.
This was due to us not being able to pull the bulls and get the cows all in sync with their cycles.

Last year, as well as, this year and years to come, the bulls are pulled before calving starts.
They are held in the pens at home.
And will return to the girls on, or about, June 1.

Flower Boy is doing a great job of keeping up with tagging of babies.

This man has a love for those babies, just as their mommas do!
Nothing puts a bigger smile on my face than watching Flower Boy walk to the calf, talk to it, examine it, tag it, and direct it back to it's momma.
He is so in tune with the cattle.
If mamma tells him "You aren't messing with my baby today!"
Flower Boy won't push or force the tagging and examination.
He simply tells momma "Okay, I will check with you tomorrow."
Normally, the next day, Flower Boy gets the job done and momma is okay with it.

We have also had quite a bit of rain this past week.
There seems to be a leak in the rain gauge, as Flower Boy checked in one morning and there was an 1 1/2" in the gauge.
That evening there was only a 1/2 inch left.
None the less, the ponds are filling and the grass is growing!

Between rains, Drewman made his way home too!
We have started phase 2 of the working pens.
There was some pipe cutting
 and some hole drilling going on!
All in all, we set a few posts and did a mock up of the sweep tub.
Can you see the vision?
If not, we will keep you updated on the progress!

Thanks for stopping by!
