Oh, goodness! I don’t know why, but things just keep getting scheduled on Wednesdays and Thursdays, and, once again, I missed working on the mountain because I had to work at the library. Megan was generous enough to share some photos with me though, so you don’t have to miss out.
They gathered the heifers and preg tested them, a double check that may or may not confirm what that blood test told us. Remember pulling blood from under the heifers’ tail and the cute video of Quinlan learning how to do the procedure? Well, the vet manually checks each heifer. We will do this to our cows soon. Next Wednesday, actually, but this time I will take the day off!

Look at those clouds! I had an uncle from upstate New York, and on his one visit to Wyoming when I was in high school, his comments about our scenic country were full of “Look at those clouds!” I’ve never forgotten that and smile inwardly when I find myself saying, “Look at those clouds!”
I loved this photo because of its perspective. Distances in Wyoming can be deceiving but the placement of the four cowboys is a good example of it as the heifers trail along the fence line.

Work concluded just in the nick of time!
Thanks, Megan, for the great pics!
