Between coordinating the required veterinarian issued health papers for each shipment, to the actual gathering and loading of the trucks--the end of grass season is a busy time.
The first picture on my post today is of a silhouette of a cowboy on a horse standing at the crest of a hill on the prairie. It is a likeness of a fellow who used to live here and managed thousands of acres of land through the years. He was a true cowboy in every sense of the word and had all the stories to prove it! He is a bit of a legend in this area and it is very fitting that he now stands sentinel on the prairie, watching over those of us who now care for it and the cattle who live here.
