|What a difference 12 hours can make!|
|This cow is doing an excellent job of getting her
newborn calf dried off before it gets too cold.
Finally after hours of waiting and praying, the phone rang. It was Tom, and he had excellent news, things were much better than we had anticipated! When he got back to the house, Tom filled me in on all the happenings of the morning and how proud he was of the job the cows were doing. The cows had stayed in the hills and were doing a great job of taking care of their calves.

Glad to hear things turned out well in a bad situation. Storms make a lot of extra work during calving season. We didn’t get snow out of last weeks front, but did put a few cows in the barn to calf.
We branded at J’s Cousin’s Ranch yesterday, it was 33* when we left at ten to 6 am with a good wind. I was glad to see the sun shining! It was a chilly 4-wheeler ride gathering pairs.
Today we branded at home. It was 32* when we started chores at 5 am and the wind didn’t come up until we were done. We had sun and perfect conditions to work cattle in.
I hope the sunshine stays and we can get some warmer temps. I also hope you can catch some nice rains.

My husband and I were just discussing how this weather feels more like March or April rather than May.
Branding in the cold and wind isn’t much fun. I’m glad the weather cooperated for your branding day! We have our first branding of the season on Monday. I am praying for a warm, dry day!
