Weather 16 May 2016


In the last couple of weeks, we’ve gone from eight inches of snow, to low eighties and back to highs in the forties with twenty mile-an-hour winds. Through it all, we continue to get the work of spring done: building and fixing fence, feeding cattle when the weather necessitates, checking cattle, and this weekend we finally were able to do a little one-way plowing to get the IMG_0766summer fallow started for fall planting.

It was cold this weekend with the wind and humidity. This morning we are shrouded in fog and waiting for the rain to come and soak into the newly worked field. The heifer we had to doctor early yesterday morning is back with her herd and maybe IMG_0775this afternoon she won’t be so mad when we check that pasture. Do heifers hold grudges? I did calmly explain to her that it was for her own good IMG_0771and would soon find her feeling her old self. She was not impressed.

My brick and mortar school head into finals this week and my online school is cranking up for summer credit recovery. My head is full of plans for summer and all the things I want to finish or start or simply experience. Hike planning is in full-swing, and one short pack trip before the horses head off to their summer jobs.
