Ranch For the Summer

Well this was a great year at the ranch. Everything was green the entire summer. It seemed as though there was more wildlife around this year. Just recently a Moose and her calf were seen just southwest of the cottonwoods right below the zip line. It was pretty amazing. A coyote was also seen running across one of the fields and it seems as if there were more deer than ever. The dam is still there but we are just having a few issues getting it all backed up without any leaks. Next year it should be more functional with just a few improvements that will be done between now and then. There was water in the dam all year which was also great. Thanks to everyone for helping keep the fields nice and free of trails by not driving through them. Also thank you for keeping all of the gates closed to keep the cattle out of the hay fields. Improvements to look for next year: a new gate 10 yards off the road at the flat iron entering all of the other fields, a new west fence marking the property line, possible green grass to have a cleaner camping and play area near the water spigot. Thanks for all those who have helped this year and hopefully we can get a couple more fun trips in this fall. Send any stories or pics you may have.

Memorial Day

Tucker's talk on Sunday was awesome he did such a good job. Thanks to everyone who came to the luncheon and brought food items it was a huge success. Later that evening Val, Tucker, Karlee, Kerri, Dustin, Libby and I drove up to the ranch and spent the night. It was a beautiful evening and and even more gorgeous morning. We were able to get most of the east fence repaired and had a great time working together even Kerri, Val and Libby hiked up the fence line for a visit to see how the work was going.
Tucker and I also did some tractor work on the flat Iron piece getting it tilled up ready to Harrow and plant this fall. I hope to provide some pictures on the next blog when Rhonda and her extended family go up on Wednesday.

Dustin, Tucker, Eric and Jared went to the ranch today and repaired fences. The winter was relatively mild so the fence around the farm ground were not in bad repair. we were able to get completely around the inner fences and they are all in good repair.

First Trip

Jared, Tucker, Libby and Dustin all went to the ranch with Beau (Jared Weight family dog) for the first time of the year this weekend. We went to check things out and make sure everything is dry enough to go do work and start on the fences. We also opened the water line so there is now drinkable water for the spring and summer. We checked the damn and it has quite a bit of water in it but shouldn't so we will have to figure out what to do to unclog the drain. We shot some guns and just had a good time for a couple hours. As we left we saw a beautiful Hawk keeping it's eye on us as we drove away. We will be going back up on Monday to start working on the fences.

The Dam

Tucker, Kerri, Libby, and I (Dustin) all went to the ranch for one last trip at the end of November to check out the new Dam. It was pretty sweet and everyone that worked on it did a great job. We got some good pictures for everyone to enjoy here.
