Do you ever have those days when you are so tired but can’t seem to rest? Me too, today.
Got up early to take care of the grumpy invalid who seems to need me to wait on him hand and foot but can still get on a horse and ride. Cowboys!
We moved a pile of cows with our girl, Jazlyn’s, help. She is one of those people you can just ask them to do something and know, even though you can’t see them for hours, that they are out there doing their darndest to do what you asked. Sure appreciated her help. And Pojke’s and Gus’. I love my dogs.
I was worried that I’d lost Pojke but he had the sense to go back to where we started and was waiting there when we were done. Gus worked his heart out.
We let jazlyn go and went home where I I made us lunch and prepared some food for company who was coming for supper, our friend George, such a good guy, has cows here, good ones. With his wife visiting family we offered to share our super with him. I was tickled to see how much he ate.
Then I saddled a different horse and went back out to check the big herd. Sadly I found a dead calf. His Momma was still trying to guard the little dead body when I got there. When I rode up to her she was anxious to show me the calf but wouldn’t let me off my horse to get its ear tag. He hadn’t been dead for long.
My old dog, Blue, who just a few sort weeks ago I thought was almost dead came with me. He was so happy.
A big part of the heard was on top of the hill which I figured was a more bug-free zone. But I mistakenly thought the grass was sparser there too. Maybe you can’t tell from the picture but it was thick and lush.
