Of coarse all play and no work doesn't pay the bills.

Don't know how you don't get a sore neck from always looking up at those mountains!

Beautiful country per, that ranch by the Tetons has nothing on your place.

The first group is on snow and the cows in the west hills have springs. We will supply water to the first group if the snow gets to be anything less that perfect but for now the conditions are nice for snow grazing. Both of our places are blessed with good water sources.

Looks like you have a real nice snow cover there. Was it your tractor that had the tire mounted on the side of the bale fork? Was wanting to try that idea. Looked for the pics again but couldnt find them.

The cows are looking good. How much longer can you leave them in the hills.
