Hope ya’ll are doing well and had a nice weekend. It was a beautiful day here and spent most of it working on a piece of furniture I am building or cleaning the mud and slop off my saddle, chinks, boots and tack from a day of cowboying yesterday.
Spring roundup is beginning here and I spent all day Saturday helping mark calves on a friend’s ranch. We had a good bit of rain this past week and it rained most of the day yesterday, so it was wet, sloppy, muddy work. Working in the pens was the worst because the horses would slip and slide on the mud each time we roped a calf to drag in to brand, cut, vaccinate and tag. All of us were concerned with the horses going down with us on it but after a few close calls, we made it through the day without any mishaps. I can’t remember ever being so filthy after the day yesterday from working calves but we all had a great time and plenty of laughs and a great meal when it was all done. Can’t wait to do it all again, just hope it is a little less muddy.
Hope all of you have a pleasant week and nice spring weather.
