Monday the kids went back to school. Time for real life to start again. Monday Toni and dad were checking, Toni always takes lots of calf pictures when she is out checking. It is fun to check the picture drive after she is done. Toni checked Monday and Tuesday, Dad Wednesday, Toni was back to checking Thursday and Friday.
This week dawned with snow flurries, rain, and fog. Let’s hope that the weatherperson is correct and we have a slight increase in temperature and no snow. We need snow in the mountains for the snowpack, not here. We are now over 50% calved out but still getting multiple calves per day. So far we are pretty happy with our calving season. Let’s just hope that it continues!
Sagebug is up at Josh and Crystal’s in Potlach getting started. Here is Day 1.

New Year’s Eve, this year has been a great year for us and New Year’s Eve is always a great time to look back and reflect on all the year’s accomplishments. Toni, Kicker, Kade and Sonny took a mini vacation for New Years on a Lake Cruise. Lots of fun. Ben, Anna, Kaine and I went to cousin Leslie’s show barn party. Ben helped Anna and Kaine do chores since Toni was gone. So King and Louie got the day off. Our second group of synchronized cows are due on the 1st, so we had a hand full of calves on the 31st.
Friday Anna, Kaine, Kade and I had a busy day. We went and checked the cows, Anna got to drive. We cleaned out the barn, put new straw down and tied up the steers. Then the kids took down their calf shelter since we are bottle calf less and it was in their wash rack. Anna and I worked on King and Louie. Then Kaine and Kade helped me move some panels around in King and Louie’s pen. Anna, Kaine and Kade did the front chores while I worked on the foals some more. Toni rolled in late and we finished chores.
