Lenn Harley got to laughing at me "working cows." I told Bessie here, and she took exception. I shoulda' had video with a sound track! (You can imagine what she's saying!)
We had a lightning show the first night we were here (Saturday) and I got a lucky shot of one of the clouds backlit by a bolt of lightning.
Three of us started out this morning at 7:00 a.m. We worked the replacement heifers on the Eighty.
They get number tags in the left ear to identify them, and that orange tag in the right ear is called a "fly tag." It's loaded with an insecticide to keep the flies away. We replace the fly tags in the spring, and the number tags when they're no longer readable at a distance.
The herd is semi-wild, as they have 1,400 acres to roam during most of the year. In order to get them to cooperate, we herd them into pens and then into a chute with a "head-gate."
The calves are my Darlin's favorite. This little bull calf knows he's good looking! :)
