Checking cows in the cold

Categories: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , , , ,

If there are ice cream trucks in the summer then why aren’t there Starbucks trucks in the winter?

Monday the kids struggled back at school. Toni checked cows and then went over to Connell and sat with Grandma, Toni was told her cooking was not up to par. But since noone’s cooking compares to Grandma’s, it isn’t really an insult. We just all realize that she is the best cook around. Kaine had basketball practice afterschool so Toni stayed long enough to pick him up. Kade and Jaxsen did most of chores, yes, Jaxsen did complain a lot about them. Toni got there for her, Kade and Kaine to finish up in the back. Ben came down and got Anna and she went and helped him feed hay. Kicker is gone to meetings, so the team is missing a teammate. We all work together to get the chores done, but if one person is gone, it takes so strategy to get everything done. No new calves on Monday. Also, Sunday when we came home from Moses Lake Jewels had somehow hurt her back leg and could not really move. She was doing a little better by Monday, she can get up with help and then hobble around.


Tuesday was mom’s day to go to Connell, so dad took her over. The kids were still not adjusting well to going back to school, maybe a touch of sickness also going around. Kade stayed home sick. Toni checked cows, again no new calves in the morning, but there were two when Ben got home from work. An Angus calf out of 303 and an Angus/Hereford calf out of a Hereford heifer. Kaine had a basketball game Tuesday after school, so dad went and picked mom up from Connell and then they went and watched him and brought him home. Mom said grandma is doing pretty good, but is still in pain. Dad said he was the #1 rebounder, great job Kaine. Also, the twins and Marlo went and watched him play, so he was really excited. Toni went down and helped Ben feed the cows since Kicker is gone. Toni and the kids rushed chores for the horses to get over to help Ben. Anna, Kade and Jaxsen fed the bottle calf, Lewis (his twin brother is Clark), and fed Loud (Jaxsen’s cow that is in the barn because she had a mummified calf a few weeks ago and she is getting antibiotics so she does not get septic. Also, she wanted a calf so Cole is on her). Update on Jewels, she is able to get up on her own and is still hobbling around.


Wednesday was cousin Kendel’s day with Grandma. Kaine did not have basketball, so he was home to help with chores. Have I ever said that I think the kids play sports to get out of doing chores? Dad and Toni took Whim to Ami’s house, so he could make a trip to Josh’s on Thursday to start his training. He is ready to move onto the next step of his life. Whim loves attention and people, so was easy to catch, loaded great, was a bit skeptical at Ami’s but didn’t do anything bad. Toni and Dad got to take a look at a couple of Ami’s high powered import horses. It is always really fun to see horses that are both outside the comfort zone and the price range to ever own. Toni and Dad made it home and Toni helped with back chores.


Thursday Jax stayed home sick. There was a mention from Jax that it wasn’t “fair” that the other kids got to stay home sick and he had not, but he really was sick, how sick is the question. Dad and Doug Buss went to the farm fair. They saw the twins, Marlo and grandma Morter at Cousins. Then, dad and mom went to Kaine’s basketball game and brought him home. On the way home Kaine realized he had forgotten his clothes bag at school, which had his belt buckle in it. Kade and Anna help Toni with chores and then they went and helped Ben feed cows. Kicker got home from his business trip Thursday night.


I did not work Friday, so I got to check cows. No new calves. Toni had an early morning meeting, so she was gone to that. She said the trip to Ritzville in the snowy blizzard was not ideal, but she made it there and back. After checking everything I started cleaning the office, we had to move everything around because we are getting central air and the furnace is going in there. So I spent all day cleaning and moving furniture. Toni was excited because she got some new camera batteries and shoes that I had found in the office. Toni is into free stuff. Mostly because she is cheap. Kaine checked around all over the school and his clothes bag was missing. We turned Shiner and Jojo out, halter breaking is officially done, except Runner who is not weaned.


Saturday we got the cows in and sorted off most of the pairs and moved them to a different corn field. We left three of the smaller calves because I did not want to trail them that far, yes, I left them, big drama. LOL. Sorting went well and the cows moved pretty good, all of the horses did great, that was the first time Friday and been ridden out in cornstalks, and sometimes horses don’t like stalks. Friday also has a new thing when she doesn’t want to do something, she shakes her head no. It is really funny. Kaine didn’t want to ride Riley, so he drove the pick-up. Toni has to get a new horse in for him. The good news is that when you have as many horses as we have, if you don’t like the one you are riding, you just go pick a new one. Toni is leaning towards Pocket for him. Toni went home and worked in the afternoon and the kids and I continued to work on the office.


Sunday Toni, Kicker and the boys went to town to get some parts Kicker needed. Ben and Jay hauled hay, we were almost out, and Kaine, Anna and I finished the office. Whitney came over and got some stuff, a desk and some stuff for Kasen, Natalie and Savannah. Ben and Kicker hauled grass hay down to the horses at the house in the afternoon and we did chores. Another week in the books. Luckily so far the weather has been pretty decent. Lets just hope it stays that way!

The kids helping with chores

KT High Wind, “Pena,”

Looking for a fancy broke palomino mare? Look no further, KT High Wind, “Pena,” is a handy cow horse. She curls her neck so you can open gates in corners, great help sorting and moving cattle. She has been used as a turn back horse, ridden by adults and kids. She is by City Smarts and out of Frankly Rosey, “Rosie.” City Smarts has a pedigree that speaks for itself and he shows the best characteristics of this breeding. City Smarts loved to chase cattle and could really turn them down the fence. City was by An Educated Guess, the highest earning son of Smart Chic Olena. An Educated Guess has 385 reining points, over $20,000 LTE, Highest AQHA Reining Point Earning, Sixth on the list of ALL TIME LEADING AQHA REINING POINT EARNERS, AQHA World Show: 1999 – 4th Senior Reining, 2000 – 11th Amateur Reining, 2002 – 9th Senior Reining and multiple AQHA & NRHA Circuit Champion. City Smarts was a fantastic stallion, with a great temperament. He was really easy to be around and was very agile. He broke his leg as a baby, or he would have made quite the name for himself in the show ring. However, he rebroke his broken leg as a ten year old and we had to put him down. However, his legacy still lives on at KT Ranch and around the area in his foals. Frankly Rosey, “Rosie,” is a 2005 grey mare by Frankly Majestic and out of A Tuff Edition. A Tuff Edition is a Tuff Continental and Mr Breeze Bar bred mare. Frankly Majestic is a Okie Leo grandson. Rosey is a really sweet mare that everyone loves. She is claimed by 5 year old Scarlett. She was born palomino so she has the crème gene as well as a grey. With Rosey’s coloring genetics she has had some very colorful foals. Her foals are normally very sweet like her and easy to trai. Pena is $5,500 and is located in Wilbur, WA. Call Rusanne for more information. 509-641-0566

As the clock strikes twelve, may you have the stamina to wish all of your in-numerous Facebook Friends a Happy New Year.

December has been relatively warm, we had a light brushing of snow Monday morning, but not too bad, and it melted off fairly quickly. It has been a touch windy, but it always is. Dad had physical therapy on his shoulder Monday, and then he stopped by and got Kaine and took Kaine home with him. Mom and Kaine played cards and board games most of the day. Anna and Ben went to town and got supplies for Ben’s remodeling project. Toni was busy most of the day with some big cases she is working on. She has a couple of big Federal cases, some big bankruptcy and lots of other stuff. Toni, Kaine, Kade and Jaxsen did chores, I think Jaxsen just fed Kool and Double, but it was hard work. The three older kids are getting kind of irritated that Jax only has one small job, yet he complains like he does the most work of anyone. Nellie and Shiner are in to get haltered and both already act like this is old news. Anna has completely taken over Nellie. Toni really wants me to take Shiner off the for sale page and lets just see how he does. Shiner is priced pretty high, so I am not as worried about it as she is.


Tuesday was even warmer then Monday, we woke up to rain and not snow. We also woke up to 11 year old 808 having twin bulls by Eathington Sub-Zero, and a Hereford heifer having a black ballie heifer calf. I had work, so Toni and the kids did chores at the normal time. The foals were already ready to tie. Tuesday night we went to our cousins’ house for a game night in the show barn. We had a lot of fun playing Codename, the card game Golf, and Memes. We left at 12:01.


We had a couple of heifers born on the 1st, Toni’s heifer, 543, 843 and 337 all calved. Ben’s last day home on his winter break, he was hard at work on his remodel project, that he thought he would be done with by now (not even close). We took down our Christmas decorations, we normally leave them up longer, I don’t know why we decided to do it. Then we went down to do chores and take new pictures of some of the yearlings. The weather was absolutely perfect. This is such a great group of foals. The weather is so nice it feels like spring in Jan. It was the perfect first day of 2020.


Ben went back to work. Worst day ever. Katie calved on the 2nd, a nice bull calf for Kade, so far all that guy has are bulls. Anna and Kaine went and checked the cows, Toni and Dad were on standby if something went wrong. On Kaine and Anna’s second check 633 had had a nice bull calf. The kids all went down and helped Toni with chores and worked on the foals. Nellie and Shiner are ready to get turned back out, they are doing awesome. We found out late in the afternoon on Thursday that our Grandma fell down and fractured her pelvis.

Friday 341 had a nice heifer calf. Chad came out and Toni, Chad and Kade trimmed horses and Bunny’s feet. Toni found out that Bunny likes wheat thins. Pow and Sally love Bunny, so they were really upset that Bunny was locked away from them, so they stood at the fence next to her trying to untie her and get her halter off. Toni told me I owed her a pizza for holding Bunny, so I told her I would get her the cheapest cheese pizza they had at Winco.


Saturday was a big calving day, when Ben went out and checked heifers, Kaine’s bottle calf, she is now a two year old and not a calf, had a cute heifer calf by Black Onyx. 530 had a heifer calf by Raindance and 452 had a heifer calf by our herd bulls. Later when we went out to check, 522T had a bull calf by Eric, our 10Y son. We were busy all day Saturday, but I could not tell you exactly what with. We tagged calves, I updated our cattle records, Ben worked on his remodel, Toni worked on cases, she had billing she needed to do, and had not gotten done yet. Just lots of stuff going on. Toni let Nellie out and got Jojo in, then Toni and I got a halter on her, and we worked on Jojo and Shiner. We wanted to keep the biggest for last.


Sunday Jaxsen’s cow, Noisey, calved and he named her Alicia Keys, and he is planning on showing her. He really named her Music, but I told him that wasn’t acceptable. It took some hard negotiating to get him off of Music. Multiple discussions about their theme this year for naming. He finally decided Alicia Keys was acceptable. After we got done tagging calves Ben, Anna, Kaine and I went to Moses Lake, to get more supplies to for Ben’s remodeling project and get Toni a cheese pizza, and a Papa Murphy’s pizza which she already figured I was going to do. Mom and Dad had lunch with cousin John and his wife Cindy in Moses Lake. Toni and Kicker showed a couple of guys the beef heifers we have left. Then Toni worked on clients and billing. Toni has been under the weather for about a week with coughing, sore throat, etc, so she may have rested a tiny bit over the weekend too. Then, I worked on Jojo and Anna worked on Shiner, I had Anna let Shiner go and go and feed Double, since Jax had not quite made it down yet. Then, Toni got there, so Jaxsen finished his chore, Kade and Kaine did front chores and Toni worked on Jojo for a while. Both foals are doing great. King and Louie had gotten out with the mares, but they don’t realize they are stud colts, so they came running back in when we shook the grain bucket. We need to rebuild that fence too, so another thing on the to do list! We are hoping that this weather continues to be perfect for calving as we continue getting lots of calves in January.

Also, we still have a few 2019 foals left for sale if anyone is looking for a one.
