When It’s Springtime in the Rockies…

…cows play in the mud!  This is 040.  On the day this picture was taken, she was also full as a tick.  That is not a photographic distortion.  It IS a rumen distortion, though.  Bwah-ha-ha.

Here’s 907.  She looks very evil here, but looks are deceiving.

Here she is with Gertrude, her calf.  Much less intimidating.  And cleaner.

I’d like to take this opportunity to announce that we are done calving, and had no more twins.  If this is your first Asphalt Cowgirl blog post, you need to know that all twins on our outfit receive names.  Here they are, in order of their arrival.
     1.   Ace & Deuce (both steers)

       2.   Eeenie & Meenie (both heifers, also mentioned in “Grandparents Raising Grandchildren” post)
       3.   Miney & Moe (both steers – no other names could follow Eenie & Meenie!)
       4.   Bonnie & Clyde (one heifer, one steer)
       5.   Otis & Olive (one heifer, one steer)
       6.   Corky & Lee (both steers, named after my cousin)

It looks like I’m running out of pictures to use from calving time…must mean it’s time to go home for another branding, which I’ll do in a couple of weeks.  I’ll do my best to get a collection of photos to take us farther through spring!  Meantime, this asphalt cowgirl is really enjoying her time OFF the road.

Yours in travel,

The Asphalt Cowgirl
