Spot

Facepaint

Greetings, loyal readers.  June has started out with continued sunshine, and you can practically watch the grass grow.  I spent last week in Bozeman, MT at the Beef Improvement Federation meetings.  It was fun to catch up with old friends and maybe learn a little something, too.  More on that in a post later this week.

I thought I’d share some of the unique face markings that some of our crossbred calves ended up with this year.  The variety of facepaint they have never ceases to amaze me.
Here we have a simple spot on the forehead, with one red eye.

This guy’s markings make him look a little lopsided.

The white on his face resembles the number 7.

It was sure nice of these two to hang out together and show off their complementarity!

And finally – like sand through an hourglass, so go the days of our lives…

Now for a bit of shameless self-promotion.  If you’d like to see more photos of life on our ranch taken by someone with skill vastly superior to mine, you can check out Lauren Chase’s work on the Montana Stockgrowers Association’s Facebook page, in the album “Goggins-Endecott Ranch”.

Speaking of the Montana Stockgrowers, I’ll be attending their Mid-Year meeting in Bozeman later this week!

Yours in travel,
The Asphalt Cowgirl
