Alley Work.......

I do like it when I get to cut in the alley. I usually NEVER get to cut the cows from the calves that role is reserved for jefe or the really experienced cowboys but when we are just working cows sometimes I get to work the alley. Though Dudley doesn't particularly like this work I believe it is just outright fun. I cut a certain number of cows usually about four, run them down the alley and shut a gate behind them. That way the cows are ready to be run through the shoot for vaccinations, teeth checks etc. It makes the overall process much more efficient.

Llama Spotting

Someone not too long ago inquired about the llamas. Well I spotted them a few weeks ago. Hollywood always gets a chuckle because as I am looking at these black dot in the distance I'll say something like is that a cow over there? He'll respond, "No, its those damn llamas." It seems like years ago that I rode up on them and Dudley freaked out well anyway they are still here. Though they must be the same sex because thankfully no llama babies!

Happy Mother's Day!!

Perhaps you saw the post where I compared my mother to horses or thanked her for my love of horses. She's a pretty neat woman. Wish I was there to celebrate!

Lonely Horse?

I call him Spot. Don't you wish horses could talk? Spot hangs out by his owner's house, the pond and is seldom ridden. But I do have to give him some credit because he has made friends with some cows and is often seen holding court with them. I look forward to the day the cows leave him in charge of the calves.

This ain't no Bull!

Its a small world after all. Which reminds me when we visited Disney Land as kids my brother was scared to get on the Its a Small World Ride. Pretty funny don't you think?
Enough embarrassing family stories. Here is something really cool that happened today - one of my dearest friends in NC met one of my blogging buddies in NC.
How cool is that? Check out the links both girls are incredible talented!
