Trailing to the Mountains

The sun starts to lighten the skyline above the Wind River Mountains while the song birds can be heard singing and the warm and cool air currents can be felt as the cowboys ride across the sagebrush, BLM allotment to gather the cattle and start them marching north to summer pasture.  This is the beginningContinue reading “Trailing to the Mountains”

Rancher Talk

Have your heifers started?  Did you have to pull very many?  When do the cows start?  All these questions are beginning to circulate between ranching neighbors at this time of year.  Have you heard any of this lingo and wonder, what in the world are they talking about?  This is a very important at thisContinue reading “Rancher Talk”

Coming Home for Winter

Driving Part VII

Day 7 – June 23, 2010 After a good day yesterday, the cattle got counted onto US Forest today.  I know I said we would push the cows up to US Forest land for grazing, but the drive is not over yet; we still have a ways to go.  This is the day where weContinue reading “Driving Part VII”
