Winter brings lots of joys and challenges to running a ranch. While the moisture is always welcome and a blessing, the bitter cold and snow makes getting things done harder. Cows have to be fed daily. Ice has to be chopped to open up water for stock to drink. And with calving season just around the corner another dynamic is about to start. Even with the extra chores I can't help feeling blessed with all I have. As I helped my cousin get his cattle home from the Family ranch in deep snow, i had to pause and appreciate all the beauty. Sure, the snow was deep and drifted. But it makes for a pretty picture. Hope nothing but the best to all of you in this new year. As always, thanks for taking the time to stop by and see what we've been up to.
