Working replacement heifers

Yesterday we worked the replacement heifers. Gave them their booster shots and bug juice on them. Getting them ready to meet the bulls in a month.
Our heifers got weaned in mid December, put in the feedlot and fed alfalfa and a mineral lick.
Tomorrow we will turn them out to pasture. Let them get acquainted with their surroundings, then put the bulls in with them.
It was nice to be back on my horse pushing heifers up the alley in to the barn. As always, I had my number 1 cowgirl helping me!
Leo is so shaggy! I haven't had the chance to get a good shedding brush on him.
Poor shaggy pony! And he has cow poop on him!

My number 1 cowgirl helper.

Love the pink heart on the babies nose. This little guy walked right up to me to get his picture taken! HA! What a goof.

Last nights sunset.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Glad you are back in the saddle. Work work always more to do. Quite a colorful little one (126).
    gorgeous sunset. Nice to see you back posting again too. M

  2. The cow business has gone high tech. It's amazing .Of course, I've been away from it for over 60 years but I'm still interested in what goes on. My family do not raise cattle anymore.

  3. Sounds like your wrist has healed enough.Like that heart nose also

  4. That is a really cute calf! Lovely sunset too.

  5. I can't wait for spring! We've got more snow again but I see the horses are starting to shed.....sort of;)

  6. Poor guy showin him off with cow poop on him! Lol nice to have them heifers back out on grass, bet they are enjoying it too. We have no calves this year, kinda odd not sure what we are gonna do without all that extra work ;) My ponies are shedding up a storm, specially the 2 I been riding all winter, wish they were done already I'm tired of breathing hair.

  7. What a lovely sunset! That little calf is darling. I wanted to reach right out and pet it!

  8. Working heifers sounds like a good job done. No green grass to turn out on here.
    Your cowgirl helper is gorgeous. She must have smarts to go with her beauty.
    Fun calf picture.
    Have a wonderful weekend, Miss C!

  9. What a glorious life you lead! If I were you I would not trade it for anything....


Thanks for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the ranch.
