Foggy day working cows

It was awfully foggy when we started out to gather heifer pairs. Picking out our future mama cows.





                                A few videos from Cameron's phone.

                               Noisy cows heading into the sorting lot.

                                Bringing out a pair. We bring them out one at a time
                                so we get a good look at mama and baby. Looking for
                                a straight, clean, calm mama. A clean, calm pretty heifer.

                             The "old guy" still going strong at 76! Pushing non keeping heifers out through
                             the corrals.

                               Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Lots of fun being in a fog. Sounds like you have it down well, always good to have some seasoned help.A neighbor still gets out, but is more a fixture at 90. Fun to listen to him while working.

  3. Foggy or not, it's always interesting to see what's going on at the ranch.

  8. Good help is hard to find, Cheri. Good ranchers, smart horses and well trained dogs are a blessing to work with.

    The old wives tail is 90 days after fog a major weather event will happen. We had fog two weeks ago. I guess we'll see what December brings us.

    J treated a couple calves this morning. Friday and Saturday was in the upper 80's. Today a front came through, wind and 67*. The evenings are in the 40's. A bit extreme for calves.

  10. Looks cold with all that fog. Seems like a good way to do that. I wish we could sort on horseback but our corrals are made for people, kinda makes me sad :(
