Today was a cow working day. First job we had to do was find and sort out 20 yearling cattle from the neibours 100 crazy cow/calf pairs. We expected this to take all day as they are in a huge pasture with no corrals to sort them in and there is only two of us. It was a very miserable day to have to ride all day. It was freezing rain with a very strong, bitter wind. The horses were not impressed about working in it either. Much to our amazement all the cattle stayed relaxed and sorted out very easyily and it only took is just over an hour to sort the 20 yearlings out. After they were sorted we pushed them back into there pasture and then another mile to some smaller pens were they can not go galavanting again. When we got to these smaller pens, much to our surprise the rest of the cattle that we expected to take 2 or 3 full days to find in 2000 acres of pasture had come in on there own. The weather may have been miserable but it was a great day with us getting 3 or 4 long days of work done in 4 hours. :)We will still probally have to move the yearling about 4 miles to some different corral as the road to the ones they are at right now is way to muddy to bring a truck in to load them up.
After we made sure the cattle were nicely contained and the fence looked good we headed back to the truch and trailer which was a mile up the road as it was too muddy to make it all the way in. We loaded up the horses and tried to make it off the muddy road and back to the highway to head home. It took us an hour to drive 3 miles and I had to unload the horses a couple times to make it. The road was very muddy. Since we took so long to get off the muddy road we then proceded to run out of gas 3 miles from home. No body would answer there phones that could bring us gas, so we decided to brave the terrible weather and ride home.
It was an interesting day. I hope I didn't bore you too much with probably my longest blog I have ever written. :)
