And So It Begins

So life is begining again after a long winter. My cowboy is out fixing fence, part of the 96 miles of fence and cross fence. It’s more a mess this year with all the snow breaking bottom wires and elk breaking the top wires.

I laughed when I saw this; cows are such itchy things and this obviously is a favorite place to scratch their itchiness.

There is still snow piles in the buffalo berry bushes and on the north side of little hollows all over. The land is bare of cattle: it always seems so lonely without the cows.

The neighbors inukshuk or whatever it was lost his head over the winter.

There’s still a bunch of snow in the yard. I shudder to think how much dog poop I’ll have to be cleaning up after it all melts.
