Rest While You Can

I’m beginning to sound like a broken record: moving cows, moving cows, moving cows.

Following my cowboy around I’ve learned to rest while I can (the baseball cap is because the strings broke on my cowboy hat and I’ve been to busy to try to figure out how to fix them). Blue is keeping watch at the gate so the bad boys don’t come back through. That’s the calves that hang back and want to make trouble. They are like a teenage mob of mischief makers.

The view was good when I lifted my cap.

Wilbur kept watch too, for a while.

I have to explain his ‘hairdo.’ He has a really long thick forelock and mane that I keep picking tons of burrs out of and I finally figured this was the only solution. I think he was a little embarrassed about the whole thing.

In the end he decided he better nap while he had the chance too. Even with a nap I’m going to bed early (so I can wake up and do more of the same tomorrow, and the next day, and the next . . . ) After the 30th when all the cows go home, I think I’ll just sleep for a week.

  1. I miss you at blogger!!

    But L.O.V.E the mane!! I want to see if I can pull that off, I’m not even sure how to start one like that htough, or is it much different from a regular braid?

    🙂

  2. Thought I’d share this link to the article on the gal and her horses. I could have sworn on Facebook she said coyotes, I was mistaken, it was a wolf. I guess being new to Montana things like this do scare me as Sadie is alone.

    I hope you and your cowboy are getting some good rest, as good as you can get for now, and are staying warm. There’s a definite chill in the air today, here it’s supposed to dip down into the 20’s for the next several nights.

    Blessings and hugs! 🙂 One day closer to the 30th!!!

  3. You’ll be bored when all the cows go home.
    I look forward to seeing what you do when they’re gone. I have a feeling it’s a lot more than I know.

    Hope you all have a good weekend!

  4. Love the braided mane!

  5. Aw, I think Wilbur’s mane looks pretty! Just show him a picture of a banded mane and he’ll think he doesn’t have it bad at all LOL!!

  6. sleeping is good. Naps are good too! My dogs would snooze too. hahaha! I love your palomino! He’s a beauty 🙂 but shhhh don’t tell him I used such a girly word!

  7. Love your pictures! I’m likin’ the mane, even if he doesn’t feel too manly! 😉

  8. I love the braid….:) Thanks for stopping by my blog awhile back. I am finally getting around to doing more visiting. Hope you can come back soon. 🙂

  9. I`m starting to get the hang of this!……………Cows? The mane plait is cool, solves a real problem, and yes I would love to help.

  10. I think that’s all beautiful there. So nice, the solitude and big open country. Gorgeous!

  11. And what a good boy Blue is

  12. After all you have had going on I would be planning to hibernate! I like Wilbur’s mane , very stylish cow hand he is!

  13. Well, we’re here to count down the days until the 30th, and no you don’t sound like a broken record to me, this is a very busy season for you. 🙂

    I am glad you’re able to get a bit of rest in where and when you can, better rest is on the horizon.

    I’m glad you have your buddies to keep you company and keep watch too, they are beautiful, noble souls.

  14. At least you’ll be done the end of the month 😉

  15. Nap while you can!
    Nice sunny day for it. The half moon is glowing tonight, but I’m too tired to enjoy it. Early to bed!

  16. Yep, catch them zzzs while you can! Hopefully after the 30th, you’ll get rested up.

  17. …and then will you dance by the light of the moonm when the cows go home?:) I really like the braided mane. It looks like a variation of a french braid, which I never could do for my daughter. Well, I know you are tired but it looks like there is a light at the end of the tunnel. ~Ames
