Cows GROSS content alert!!

Guess what I did this afternoon? I got a chance to witness the birth of the first of what we hope will be a long line of cows on Peter and John's ranch. First when Harvey (my brother and ranch manager) said that we had a heifer (first time mothers) that looked like her water … Continue reading Cows GROSS content alert!!

Just when you get your $hit together…

Guess what got delivered last night? Yep, just when I think I have gotten my shit together they bring in something to scatter it all over. Well, not my shit exactly but still. Who even knows what to do with it? OK, rhetorical really. If you have animals that digest vegetation. I.E. cows and horses … Continue reading Just when you get your $hit together…

Treasure Shed!!

OK, would you believe that I have been almost consumed with curiosity about a shed on the ranch. Taking my handy dandy pitch fork and shovel, I started digging. Would it be King Tuts Tomb? How about that story on the internet of finding antique cars in an old garage? Better yet the story about … Continue reading Treasure Shed!!

Farmall

No, I haven't taken up race car driving.... Not that I would be too bad. OK, I would stink at it but it reminded me of a story.... Most everybody, if you ask, will tell you that John Deere is the only tractor made. Well, maybe a little exaggerated, but you get the drift. My … Continue reading Farmall

My frog friend

I use the same faucet to wash out the automatic milker - yes that is what the bleach is for. There seems to be just one frog that hangs out waiting for either the left over milk or the flies that are attracted to the milk remnants. If you look really hard you can see … Continue reading My frog friend

When the house in Englewood was sold and I moved. Some of the stuff I found I never even knew we had. I lived there for 50 years but I guess the basement was just full of treasures. One of them was a flag. It was a United States of America flag. It had the … Continue reading July 4th

Strangest place you have had a conversation?

Where is the strangest place you have ever had a conversation? Behind the bleachers in school? Next to the produce isle “does this look fresh to you?” or maybe under the restrooms stall “Hey, sorry to bother you but I seem to be out of toilet paper over here, could you maybe give me some?” I admit that up to now that was the strangest place I had had a conversation.

Milking Team

Day 1 06/12/2017 Milking team day 1 – don’t they look happy!?!?! OK, see the shinny new automatic milking machine in the lower right side… OK, now see the bucket placed under the udder, stealthily held by my wonderful Son Peter Moe! He had to hold it the cow kept kicking (Now we know why … Continue reading Milking Team

Storm Chasers??

When my Son Peter came in the door I could tell that something was up. His face was looking concerned. His "get your camera and come out here". Gave me very little comfort. I knew that the clouds were getting darker, but we live in North-Eastern Colorado. I grabbed my new digital camera and followed … Continue reading Storm Chasers??
