We were finally able to move cows on a nice day! Which was good because we had a lot of small moves to make. We are starting to get everybody shuffled around and grouped the way we need them, to all be moved off the home place this week. We spent the day bringing them in from over here and gathering from over there and sorting them and putting them back out over yonder. We split the calves (and a few cows) into five different groups and attempted to sort all of them simultaneously. It was no easy task, and Mom and I were so confused by the end of the day, we didn’t know which way was up! So hopefully, we got everyone into the right group! But we had fun, and that is all that matters (at least that’s what we tell ourselves!).
Now we can breathe a small sigh of relief (or we can when most of the calves are finally moved out of our “ranch headquarters”). Life gets less rushed and busy once all our cows are out on pastures and don’t have to be fed every day. Of course, this brings its own challenges and headaches. Now we start building more electric fences, checking on all the different herds regularly, keeping everyone watered sufficiently, etc. But those are troubles for tomorrow!
