That Grin

Longmire Days was fun… definitely more people this year, although I really only felt it at the street dance.  I didn’t push for photos or autographs, but just enjoyed the visits, the food, the craft fair, the town of Buffalo, aka, Durant, which I enjoy every time I visit.

I’ve more to share at a later point, but it was back to work, moving cows today.

We were a bit late, Brandon having to irrigate before we headed down, so I had him drop me off to start beating the brush on foot.  It’s almost easier, this pasture needs cleaned up!  Too many willows, thistles, hound’s tongue, and trees infested with web worms.  It’s difficult to ride through horseback.  If I could, I’d put a goat herd down in here… but no one but me wants to do that!

sunupThere’s also the Really Narrow Trail that we’ve blocked off.  It’s hard to tell, but there’s a 40′ or 50′ drop to the creek right here.  It’s time to move the fence a bit… It’s on The List of Things To Do.

dropWe trailed the pairs to the corral, where we gave the calves a booster shot, and branded a few of the very late calves.  We then turned them out and trailed them back.

Something was different.

cowboysWe’d acquired a pair of top hands.  They rode along the mile out and back… and had a great time!

sweetHow cute can you get????

  1. Carol, you can never have enough top hands. The ones willing to do whatever needs done,even if just keep the adults in line. Ha. Love it. Keep up the family ways. Sharon Drake. South central Kansas

  2. I’d say, “right-o” to the grin that says it all….and “perfect” to the day’s activities that is hard to duplicate!
