Red poppies for remembrance day

LEST WE FORGET

Well it has been a bumpy road this fall, technology wise!  Lots of problems and lots of lost photos, but we are back online and not anticipating any more issues.

I hope everyone has had a great fall, the weather has been fantastic, I know everyone thought it was all over but the shouting when Thanksgiving came with snow and cold but mother nature has blessed us with a lovely October and November thus far 🙂  So the big question is what has been happening around the Ranch?  Lets see…

  • The bulls went home the last week in August
  • The cows went home October 20th
  • According to Neal it was a great year, the cows and calves were in excellent health with only a few to treat, one bull had a rough go but he recovered with minimal treatment
  • The pheasant hunting has been great with more hunters out than we have seen for a few years now
  • Upland hunting seems to be very popular on the ranch again this year
  • The Foothills Restoration Forum had a Range Health School out here on September 14th and 15th
  • Perry McCormick, the Ranch’s DU management committee representative, is retiring at the end of November.  He will be missed but I’m certain we will see him around during hunting season…the Ranch is part of his history
  • We have seen more Great Blue Herons this year than we have in the last 11 years.  I have a picture of one that was on the canal just yesterday
  • Neal is glad the weather is holding out as he still has some work to do on the barn and around the yard
  • When the weather does turn cold he will be keeping himself busy with budgets, computer work and plans for next year
  • I know we will all be taking a moment on the 11th to remember those who gave their all for our fantastic freedoms, Lest We Forget

I have added many photos this time to make up for all that have been lost, until next month, peace be with you,

Shannon, Neal, Boyd and Reyd
