Merry Christmas everyone!
I have been enjoying having my girls home the last week during their Christmas holidays.
We have been riding almost everyday, as my husband is trying to keep up the training on our 3 year old horse (picture below). Doug’s new favourite cartoon taken out of the Canadian Cattlemen’s magazine is:
Thankfully ‘Cash’ did not do this!
We moved our cows to our home place the other day. Our girls are so helpful! Here our youngest two were moving the herd all by themselves as the rest of us were fetching the last ones that had gone up to the water hole. Way to go girls!
When we caught up to them the job was almost complete!
We were feeding the cows hay the last couple weeks but now that they are home, we have cracked open the silage pit. The feed looks excellent and they seem to be enjoying the silage. I like it too as feeding silage is a lot less work for me (actually none other than opening gates.)
Today we sorted the cows, 1st and 2nd time calves from the older girls. It is easier for the younger cows to be in a group and not compete for feed with the older, bossy cows.
My husband got me custom made Armita’s for Christmas. He snapped this photo to send to other Erika’s husband. They were cracking each other up as Doug texted: “Erika’s ready for a Buckaroo convention!” Cyle replies, “Boy id say, I think u should just take ur colts to her!” Then they both giggled at my expense! Doug and Cyle want to have their own blog called: “Living With The Erika’s!!” I think it would be real goood!
Merry Christmas and wishing you all the best in the new year.
