Now that the steers are gone, its time to get the heifer pairs in and pick our replacements and give everyone their shots. We pick our replacements when they are still with their mamas. If mama is a run around freak, we definitely will not keep that heifer. If mama is calm and gentle and baby is the same, we will keep her. Then we look at conformation. Does mama have a good udder, feet etc. Does baby have size and a fancy look , we will keep her. So, attitude and looks.
We sort in the lots. Its been dry dry dry and dust. We usually turn on the sprinklers, but the pump on the bridge went out. So what is a person to do? Whaaa Laaaa! Get the transfer pump to pump outta the creek to fill the truck, while the truck is pumping water through the sprinklers. As easy as that! :)
Cow Creek. It runs the length of the ranch. Has good fishing at times. Rainbow trout.
The transfer pump and water pipes that water the corrals and lots. Directly from the creek.
To the tanker truck it goes.
From the tanker to this! YEAH!
Bandit at the creek waiting for me to tell her to go swimming. She loves the water.
A gorgeous sunset to a few busy days. And a few more coming up!
Thanks for stopping by.
