Hard work. Big Rewards. Bigger blessings. Life on a South Dakota ranch.
Day in Pictures 9.20.13
We worked more calves at some leased summer land just across the state line into Montana. Like the rest of our area of the world, it looks so beautiful this year. Here are a few of my favorite shots from that day of working calves.
Gathered in the first pasture, trailing across this pasture, and then into the pasture where the corrals are located.
Riding down to open some gates.
Trailing down the lane to the corrals.
This made me laugh– all the riders and then the Wild Child bringing up the rear.
Sorting cows out the gate.
Papa waiting to bring more cows.
The big guy following some cows in to be sorted out the other gate.
STUMP THE CHUMP TIME: Any guesses on what this piece of equipment is?
The Wild Child playing in the loading chute while the rest of us are working calves.
Part of the crew enjoying a little lunch, iced tea, and visiting after all the calves were worked.
The arena where our friend, a former NFR Steer Wrestling Average Champion, honed his skills! Check out the view!
A better view of the view! Absolutely beautiful!
