A Beautiful Day For A Cattle Drive!

Well, it's that time again.  Changing cattle from summer pasture to winter pasture.
This time it was a piece of cake.  The winter pasture is just across the street!
How much sweeter could it get!

Sparkey and Tillie are ready to go!
Off we went and gathered all the ladies and their babies.
It went off without a hitch.

We put them in this holding pen while getting ready to usher them across the street.

A light breakfast was served buffet style.

And, of course, children ate for free.

Then some high tech engineering had to be done with the gates

A guy can fix almost anything with either baling twine or duct tape.

Now we are ready for the parade!

And, there you have it.  Another successful cattle drive!
Happy California Cows!

Once that was done we headed home and I thought it was high time you saw
Sparkeys new winter blanket.

Yup... It's giraffe print!  I thought it was perfect for a buckskin.
He likes it too!

Get your cold weather gear out!

Winter is coming.  We are gonna get hit with the first rain of the season. 
Am I sorry?  No, not really.  Irrigation is going to be cut off soon, so rain is a good thing.

You can also tell that winter is coming by Penny Pinschers wardrobe.
She LOVES her polar fleece.
Here is her new outfit I made her this afternoon.

You gotta love Wall-mart remnants.
She hates to be cold..

This is the pool and cabana in the good weather...
Next week the cabana tent will be all closed up with
everything from the yard in storage.
I hate that part....

Well, anyway... Come on Winter!
We aren't scared!

Photo of the Boys

I was fooling around in my photos and came across this photo
from the men's Tribe Ride.

That's my hubby in the middle.
Handsome guy!

Husband's STILL Home, but it's all good.

Yes, the hubby is still home and hasn't had his knee surgery yet.  He hobbles around getting more done lame in one day than most guys get done in a week.  We are getting ready for winter around here, it's gonna be here before we know it.  This year he decided to add more shade cloth on the arena to block out more wind and keep it drier once the rains hit.  Remember, he has a bum knee.

He welded the frame to the beams to lace the curtains to.
Pretty smart..

Needless to say the arena was out of commission for a few days.

Even Wednesday was wondering what was up

It took a few days, but it was all worth it!

Our new motto "Every Day Is A Ride Day!"

Also means that Penny Pinscher has a huge indoor play yard!

She is just sure it's all about her!
