Random Parts and Pieces.

Random Parts and Pieces.

Last weekend brought the arrival of the roping steers (boys)…….or in this case this year, the roping

heifers(girls)……the fellow Corey gets them from every Spring had sold out of every steer he had

so he parted with a few of the heifers (which he normally holds back for his breeding herd)  Roping

cattle up here have been in high demand the last few years and are hard to come by.

There is always a brave one in the group…..


And once one goes, they all go………not exactly sure what happened here, the one laying on her

back must have hit a slippery spot, no injuries to report there.

My nephew, Owen, decided upon their arrival it was time to start practicing…..he’s in third

grade and his practice session also coincided with the annual Spring college rodeo that happens

every year ….and his sudden desire to be a Cowboy 🙂

The ponies are glad to see Spring arriving, the green grass is their favorite part…..followed in a close

second by getting rid of their itchy winter coats……which in turn seems to become part of any piece of

my clothing I wear near them……….horse hair everywhere, it goes well with the dog hair.

    I live in horse country here in SoCal, but much prefer the Montana background over our low desert scrub (and drought). Your horse(s) look very handsome and content.

      Thanks, they are loving the green grass….I hate the shedding.
