Tired, Dirty, Hungry, Thirsty

I am soooo tired, dirty, hungry, and thirsty. On a horse at 9 AM, back at 7 PM or shortly after, nothing to eat all day but I did take a little water on my horse. Those long days are a killer.

Moved cows, close to 500 head, to a different field, hunted for a calf in poky, nasty buffalo berry bushes but couldn’t find him, and had to send one of my favorite Simmental bulls home with a broken ‘male appendage.’ I tried to  be real respectful because I knew he doesn’t have many days of life left. I felt bad. He moved to the corrals so sweet.

I had all that to do and also had to take care of a bucked off, less than helpful cowboy all day and do chores when I got home and fix his dinner and . . . . And no pictures all day because I didn’t take my camera with me.

But tomorrow I party. I am going to a Livestock School for Women. Two of things I love most (beside my dog and my horse and of course, my cowboy) cows and learning about cows. It’s a couple of days so I’ll have to catch up and fill you all in when I get back.

  1. Sorry I missed this. Hope you enjoyed your class. Sounds like it should have been very interesting!I would love to send you some heat, or take some of that cold away!But your cowboy would probably prefer the cookies. 😉

  2. Oohh, I can't wait to hear about what you learn! That sounded like a looonnnngggg day! Stick a granola bar in your pocket or something girl! Gotta feed that machine!

  3. At least you get a reward for all your hard work 🙂

  4. You are one tough cookie! That is one long day in the saddle.Its been a long time since we had a big cattle herd ,I miss it ,and I don't.Too bad about Bully , it happens ,but its rotten especially when it is a particular favorite. Enjoy your course sounds intersting .Looking forward to reading about it .

  5. I hate days like this, when nothing goes right!

  6. I hope your bucked off cowboy is ok; don't they say a woman's work is never done? Hope you have a refreshing time at your cow course. And don't forget to eat!
