The prairie from my saddle....

(click on pics to enlarge)

It was a howling windy day today as we moved cow calf pairs from one pasture to another. Still, it was wonderful being out there, seeing all the new life springing up everywhere.

A newborn kid antelope.

I was off my horse, kneeling down to get a closer look at the locoweed when a calf cut back and ran my way. I should've been paying a little more attention. J. came along and turned her back into the herd.

P.S. Southeast Electric Coop just called to say that our power is back ON! That's 19 days of generating our own power today.
