Gathering



I mentioned in my post under "Baking Day" that we were pregnancy testing our heifers. I thought I'd share a couple of pictures I took while we were in the North Pasture gathering cows. You'll notice that the pictures are a little bit hazy. There are many fires burning in Montana and the smoke keeps us in a gray haze when the wind is from the west.


All the cattle are standin' like statues,
All the cattle are standin' like statues,
They don't turn their heads as they see me ride by,
But a little brown mav'rick is winkin' her eye.....
Oh, what a beautiful mornin'
Oh, what a beautiful day,
I've got a beautiful feelin'
Everything's going my way.

"Oh What a Beautiful Mornin'
From the musical "Oklahoma!"
