Each day Lucy delivers at least one mouse and two moles for her youngsters--she has seven of them! Some days she changes things up a bit with a bird.

We haven't had any measurable moisture since the Fourth of July. Today, September 28th, it was 90 degrees. We're drying up again...the extremes of Wyoming.

There's Always Someone Who Does Things Different

When the boys headed back to school I finally realized that I never ran the 4 wheel drive tractor to work summer fallow and I never checked cows all summer. Lukas and Levi took care of quite a bit. School and football schedules now keep them busy. The cows are still out to pasture so now I get to check salt, mineral, water and fences.

This ol' gal has been with us 15 years. Every year she produces a fantastic calf and looks like she's in great shape to head into the winter.

A sample of our heifers that might become replacements.

The Code Of The West
Levi killed these rattlesnakes a couple of weeks ago. It's a final statement to leave the carcasses to rot and dry in the sun. His action certainly gave me a chuckle when I saw them slung on the fence next to the gate that I needed to open!
