Parts of Wyoming received two feet of snow and high winds. We only received 3”, but it was a wonderful wet snow and we’re grateful. Any moisture is welcome since we’ve been in a drought for so long. We were back at the job of turning cows out to their spring pastures this afternoon.
We were on four wheelers and I can’t hardly stand to do that anymore. Sorting, in my mind, should be on horseback. When cows can turn back on you and escape because your four wheeler can’t turn like a horse, it teaches your cows bad manners. Plus, it makes you want to hurry and cut her off, maybe making bad decisions while driving. One of my biggest fears is one of us getting hurt while zooming like a madman after a silly cow. It’s not worth it.
Four wheelers have their place, and they can be used to trail cattle if the country isn’t too steep, but the older I get, the more I dislike using them to work cattle.
Not that you can’t get hurt on horseback, but a horse doesn’t want to fall down anymore than you do… I guess I should just quit being a worry wart.Find me here!
