We ended our second 10-day this past week with 13 guests with an assortment of riding backgrounds. We did horsemanship to start the week out strong, focusing on the fundamentals and the importance of getting life in our horses and how it applies to moving cattle. We then moved cattle from Shayne’s pasture to the Joanne Wallace piece. We had two groups go out at
separate times and were able to get all 227 head of cattle moved in 1 day! To end the week out we took a beautiful scenic all day ride to the top of one of the mountains where Emily, Chris and Levi had a fire pit set up with hotdogs for everyone to roast. It was a great way to finish up a good week.
After the guests left I was able to finish up rest of Shayne’s mountain fence line while Levi and Chris took
care of Ferguson and the other ranch fences. The views can always be a reward doing the fence and it’s really one of my favorite things to do on the ranch. Being out on the top of the mountain with that clean air and big blue sky really is something special.
Well, that’s all I have for this week. Maybe next time I can tell you all about how Emily has been training me to help prep in the kitchen!
