OK Stan, when can I come stay?
I read a book a few months ago called "A River Ruled My Life" all about a city woman marrying a rancher whose place you couldn't get to at many times of the year because of the depth of the river.
I loved it, a hard life but one she loved.
CW & Susan come stay then you will see for yourselves!
Weather has been what we would call normal for April, heavy showers on and off all day. Not a lot of rain in them but enough to make the fields very greasy.
I have been running the three year olds and yearlings together. Want to start breaking the older ones - about time they had something done to them! So, this morning we went out to bring the older ones in. No problems, the yearlings were a bit upset at being left on their own and were cantering up and down the 4'6" railed fence.
Went out this evening to feed them and give them some hay and found that two were in the wrong field. The only way they could have got through was to jump. No rails were down so I am quite impressed. They stayed near their correct paddock as the third was in there on her own.
The youngsters all had bridles on for the first time today, didn't do anything else with them but will start them lungeing tomorrow.
Off to get something to eat!
