Calving season is about over, warming up.

Posted on 2 May 2018 | No responses

The end of calving season is approaching for us.

Nightly lows have been above freezing for the last couple of weeks, so the cold is finally gone. That’s not to say we won’t get a snow or ice storm this month, which is quite normal, but they only last a couple of hours.

These guys and gal are chomping away on some alfalfa, they can’t get enough of it. The remaining calves are all healthy, growing and ready to move out of pens into pasture. We had some sickness loss this spring, a bad virus took several calves. The survivors are tough, that’s nature.

Just a little b&w photo of the F-250 at the end of the property.

New Wagyu calf born

Posted on 27 February 2018 | Comments Off on New Wagyu calf born

Another calf was born this week, this one from one of our Wagyu cows. He’s a little bull calf, so he’ll be steered in a few months, bulked up and be on his way to a dinner table. Tough little guy so far, he had to endure -14 windchill the first few nights here on earth.

This is probably my favorite pic of this guy and his mother.

Moses Ranch Cattle/Horse Brand is Official!

Posted on 20 February 2018 | Comments Off on Moses Ranch Cattle/Horse Brand is Official!

Our Moses Ranch cattle and horse brand is official! I didn’t like our previous brand, and didn’t want to commit to it, so I had it redesigned and like it a lot better. Much more simple.

Stopped and took a picture of the inverted weather. We live in one of the coolest places on earth.

To prove the pic wasn’t taken from an airplane. 🙂

1985 F-250 Diesel

Posted on 13 January 2018 | Comments Off on 1985 F-250 Diesel

I’ve been searching for quite some time, and finally found almost exactly what I was looking for. I’ve been torn between the blue/white and the red/white, but ultimately very happy with this one.

I found it out near Yakima on a farm, in very good shape for an 85. Interior is very clean, save for the door panels. The body has the usual scratches and marks that you’d expect on a 30 year old farm truck. Will be fun to put some new tires on it, go over the motor and restore the exterior and interior.

Put new tires on, before bringing it up the mountain. Super excited about it.

Winter sun!

This winter we’ve had far more overcast days than normal, so when the sun shines, you have to get out and get things done… even at 10 degrees.

Inyourflippindreams – all healed up and ready to go again

Posted on 13 December 2017 | Comments Off on Inyourflippindreams – all healed up and ready to go again

Inyourflippindreams (Dream), injured her leg last year in her stall, and took more than 6 months off to heal up. She’s now back in training, and we are excited to see what she can do.

We had big plans for her and the Futurity in Oklahoma, but it doesn’t always work out that way.

December through April, we are on calf watch

Posted on 9 December 2017 | Comments Off on December through April, we are on calf watch

For the next few months we are on calf watch. We’ll make several trips out to the pastures to check for new calves, and make sure predators don’t get there before we do.
