Gathering cows for branding tomorrow...


The green, green grass of home...


Antelope are playing ...


Git along little dogies!


My cowboy.


Let's get 'em around that water...
(do you see Pete's ears peeking up?)


...and through the gate.


The gate's shut, let's go home.


Early in the springtime we round up the dogies
Mark 'em and brand 'em and bob off their tails
Round up the horses, load up the chuck wagon
Then throw the little dogies out on the long trail

Whoopee ti yi yo, git along little dogies
It's your misfortune and none of my own
Whoopie ti yi yo, git along little dogies
You know that Wyoming will be your new home...

"Git Along Little Dogies"

  2. *happy sigh* I can come here and dream about ranch life - I always wanted to be a cowgirl.

  3. Great and interesting posts, Jody!
    Fun to peek into the life of a rancher!
    So green there!
    What a miracle after years of drought!
    And...
    Your header is stunning!
    Did you take that photograph?
    Remind me again which camera you use (was it the canon?)
    My son is looking into buying a digital and I wonder if I can recommend one like yours.

  5. Oh, I just love this kind of thing, Jody! I'm so glad you post about your everyday life on the ranch. There's something soothing and settling and inspiring and nice about seeing people who work hard on their land.

  9. I love your everyday life but of course I'm romanticing about it and your the hard worker!
    You know how we grew up with patriotic songs and know the lyrics like the top rock songs? I still have "Home, Home on the Range, Where the deer and the antelope play" in my mind. I was a strange teen that loved my parents music as well as the top 40!!
