This past weekend we branded our calves at my father-in-law's ranch. It went very well (with only a few incidents but that is to be expected) and had all 50 calves vaccinated and branded before noon. Thanks to everyone who came and helped. A few extra hands made it go very quickly. I didn't help much at all as I was holding my son but the girls were happy to have me take them for a walk in the hills. They also enjoyed playing by the creek with their cousin. In the afternoon I was able to go for a ride to help move the bulls. I'm not sure I was much help as the horse I was riding did not like to move but it was good to get the chance to ride. Here are a few pictures from the weekend.

My daughter likes looking at the calves.
The girls love playing by the creek.
All done and the cows are headed to the summer pasture.
I am a stay at home mother of three girls aged 13 (Star), 11 (Sky), & 3 (LT or Lil), and a boy (LK) who is 5
years old. I live on a farm in rural Saskatchewan and I am striving to live a frugal and healthy life. I love crocheting, reading, and playing with my kids. I don't love cooking or cleaning but as they are part of my job description as homemaker I am trying to change that.
