Finally, a moment to post some photos! It has been pretty busy around here this summer, and a long, cool and wet summer to boot. We are finally getting some heat and that is nice although kinda hard to adjust to. Crops are looking pretty awesome and so are the cattle. I've been busy showing my horse and travelling with my daughter to horse camp, baling and I had surgery to hopefully fix up my knee last week. So far it is feeling pretty good although the Dr said I have permanent damage (no surprise there).

I have actually taken a few photos of the cattle, just haven't had time to do anything with them up til now! So here you go, it is a little difficult to get decent pictures, the flies are keeping them all bunched up.

Here's a nice big angus x steer calf and his mama in the background.

Another Angus x steer, he's quite a calf!

This guy's still a bull, couldn't get him banded at calving time and we forgot about him at branding. Gotta remember about him when we wean though...

Here's some of the heifers I'm impressed by this year
A Charx that we bought as a pair this spring, pretty impressed with them!

Angus x heifer

Here's one I've been waiting for. Her mama had 2 sets of twins in 2011 and 2012, exactly 365 days apart. In 2011 she raised them both, rather impressively and last year she would have if we hadn't needed a replacement calf. Both heifer/bull sets. I was pretty happy when this girl was born... She's mostly Shorthorn.

Not sure who this one is, but she's pretty sweet...

Another heifer I've been waiting for. Here mama is one of our best cows, but always has steers. Crossing my fingers that this one is as good as her mama. Angus x Hereford

And finally, a photo of one of the cows, One of the few straightbred Hereford's in the herd....

Thanks for all the comments and compliments!

My knee is feeling pretty good today, not even much of a limp. And was able to get out in the garden and pick beans, cucumbers, corn and some squash and I trimmed up all my tomato plants too! Not bad for a morning of work I think! Now for some pickles, frozen corn and beans....

I'd hate to be sitting at the sale barn when that short horn heifer came thru! Probably need to sit on my hands.
