Cattle Drive 09'

Saturday morning we were all up at 5:30 AM ready to head to the mountains to push our cows up to the windmill(the very upper part of our ranch) by 8:30 everyone had eaten their breakfast, loaded up horses, loaded our lunch etc...

Every year rounding up the cows gets easier b/c the mamma cows know what we're doing, so they cooperate. This year went well! No major accidents or big problems! We probably ended up riding around 10-12 miles on horse back. Dad had brought 3 semi-trained horses. Luke, Jaxon and Dad had the pleasure of riding them:) Luke ended up having to get off Margret b/c she wouldn't do one thing for him. Haeli ended up on her later and did great!

Around 8:30 PM we all loaded up and headed back home! Such a long but fun day!

I woke up Sunday morning and seriously I have never been so sore! Every muscle in my body hurt!(legs, butt, abs, back, shoulders) I'm definitely not in horse riding shape!

On the way back home Dad's truck said it was -40...haha!
