With over an inch and a half of rain, we cancelled yesterday’s branding… and cancelled today’s chance at it too. Then the rain stopped. It turned partly cloudy and breezy and the guys decided to brand after all.
It’s not easy to throw things together in such a short time, but we did it…
I’m about out of historical photos… though I’ve held a few back for later down the road. I thought maybe I’d go back into the history here on Red Dirt In My Soul… back when it was simply an addendum entitled “Overlook” on my Rimrock English Shepherds website.
The website is gone… seven years of not having puppies doesn’t really qualify me for a “breeder” of English Shepherds! But the blog – renamed, relocated, and renewed, carried on the stories of those dogs, this ranch, and my family.
It’s always easy to see what happened years ago, a simple scroll or view to the right sidebar will show the “Look Back In Time” section. Pick a year… there’s probably an entry there pretty much the same as we’re doing this year! Only the very beginning years may be photo-less, but due to a faithful reader, most photos are where they’re supposed to be…
I just thought we’d look back ten years… pick a photo from that post, and re-post it as v. 2.0. It’s kind of fun to do… a young Lucas, kids in college… there’s been a fair amount of change around here. Go ahead and read the entire post if you’d like, or just enjoy this photo from “Branded”, May 16, 2009.
NOTE: YES, I BEGAN BLOGGING IN 2008. I DID NOT BLOG EVERY DAY AND THERE WAS NO ENTRY FOR MAY 16TH OF THAT YEAR.
