You know, I kinda miss that. When I was cowboying my favorite two times of year was branding and haying
Sandhillbilly. Haying is a heck of a lot easier with round bales! Don’t have enough kids & grandkids for putting up square bales. 😀
All of us out this way were way short of hay last year. This year, left one pasture in grass (have to clip the tops) in case another dry summer.
Don’t brand out this way which is probably good, as I’m a very poor cowboy. Bring the 400-500 lb bulls to market and keep most of the heifers.
Just enough money to fund lime, fertilizer and pay taxes. Sort of like Blake Shelton‘s “Gods Country”. Feel blessed. Attachment 245562
Do those calves have some Scottish highlander in them, they look pretty woolly. Most around here use round balers now too. In the past when I was out there they mostly used stackers of one kind or another.
