Our Branding

We branded our calves a couple months ago, as we always do in preparation for turning them out in pastures that are farther from home. We invited more friends this time and we asked Nannie to help us make the meal for afterwards. She was so excited to cook for a big group again, she … Continue reading Our Branding

Daddy’s Home

We interrupt our regularly scheduled posting with a rare sighting--a farmer father has been seen at home with his children!!! It was amazing to see Ty at home during daylight hours. We sat with him while he ate dinner, moved the girls' new kitchen hutch (new to us, gifted from some older cousins) into their … Continue reading Daddy’s Home

Crossing the River

Our cows moved from one pasture to another across the Weiser River. The cowboys didn't really need our help but we hopped on the four wheeler and invited friends to come out for a hotdog party. It's the evenings like this, when I get to tag along with the work and look at the beautiful … Continue reading Crossing the River

Becca Lynne Turns Two

Once again, we have a two year old in the house. Heaven help us this go round. Miss Becca sure is a firecracker, maybe even more so than Miss Henley. She sure knows how to get dirty, explore outside, tease big sis and Daddy, and can throw a temper tantrum like nobody's business. She's tall, … Continue reading Becca Lynne Turns Two

Utah Trip

One challenge of raising beef cattle, or any livestock/agricultural product, is that you are tied to the cows, fields, pivots, tractors, basically the dirt you live on every day of your life.  This makes travel of any sort tricky and virtually non-existent.  However, occasionally the stars will align, there will be a pressing need to … Continue reading Utah Trip

Cabin Fever

Anyone else suffering from cabin fever???  We've got a bad case of it over here.  The depressing thing is that thus far this winter we have had gorgeous weather.  We're just coming out of a week with 50-60* temperatures!  And now the wind is blowing.  Like really blowing.  Try thinking of things to keep a … Continue reading Cabin Fever

December and January…

Ahhhhhh the sweetness of the holidays.  They're full of family, driving, delicious food, and short on sleeping, cleaning, rest, and boredom.  Then January rolls in and the daily grind picks back up even more intensely than before.  In my household this is due to the resuming of graduate work, tax preparation, budgeting, and meetings with … Continue reading December and January…
