The sunshine met us early this morning.
This jaunt revealed no elk this time around… although I heard one way off in the distance… and at one point their musky odor surrounded me…
I continued through my favorite aspen patch… only a few leaves are golden yellow…
Although the calves didn’t realize it, this was their last day with momma. But what a wonderful day!
Before they knew it, the semis arrived, and in short order, the calves were loaded and hauled down the mountain.
We made it off just in time for a good rain shower. Tess and I watched from the pickup as the guys helped unload. We’re really sweet, y’know? Gotta stay out of the rain!

The picture with the horse and the rising sun is stunning – definitely framing quality!

Just how noisy it weaning night and the day after? 😉
Very colorful montage of your day’s activities – I always LOVE pictures of Panama and horses in general!
I love your little Aspen grove! It’s just so peaceful and pretty.
Carol, I really hate to ask this but what happens to the Calves? Are they sold for breeding or are they sold for food ? you know I’m just a city girl who gets awfully attached to the animals ha ha . i have to keep reminding myself that you’re actually in the cattle business
Or a calendar.
A wonderful photo of Panama with the sun behind. An enlargement of that would look stunning on a wall.
