On our walk today...

As usual we stepped out for a little hike today. It was a cool 90 degrees by 10am (yes I jest.)
On our walk we.... 

Checked the drinker for tadpoles.
 Yep, they were there, and have grown approx. an 1/8 of an inch over the past few days.
 We watched the heifers bed down for the day. With the heat you will find little grouping scattered throughout the pasture under the sparse shade of the Georgia Pines.
 We recovered a Roly Poly and carried him with us for quite a while.
 We met daddy at the corrals to help him doctor a cow.
 Colton and Alex enjoyed watching dad doctor a cow that is battling hoof rot.
 Kyle spraying the feet with an antiseptic.
 Cow back out, time to unwind....Well at least time to take off the spurs.

 Then we headed home for it was getting too hot.  
That is how we spent our morning, which is pretty normal. The treat was seeing Kyle, that is not so normal. It is a 1/2 mile from our house to the corrals. The rest of our Saturday was spent running errands, buying our first Georgia Peaches, and then home for lunch. Later Kyle will come get us and we'll ride out and check waters and cows in the mule. I am very much looking forward to this as not only will it be good family time, but we will get explore new parts of the ranch.
