Happy Friday all! I don't know about anyone else, but my Friday was freaking AWESOME! Rafe did amazing working cattle, we didn't have any trouble crossing "sh*t" creek, and the weather was very pleasant; it stayed cool and even sprinkled on us for much of the morning.
Just sharing a few of the hundred or so pictures I took. I likely won't upload them all and get them sorted until after tomorrow when it's all completely done.
Oh, and the reason we call it Sh*t creek is because the banks are about 30 feet deep and the easiest place is at about a 45* angle. There are trees and deadfall everywhere (as you can see) and there is a grand total of one
safe place to cross. You try to cross anywhere else and you will
get completely bogged down.
Approaching S*** creek
Watching the cattle as they crossed to make sure that they didn't get "lost" (which has happened before)
Then, it was my turn to cross S*** creek
And, then we finally got them all down to the corrals (I was sitting in the road waiting to turn them in the gate).
