I promised you some evidence of Moxie the dog’s penchant for irrigating….and here it is. It’s best-suited to video, rather than still photos, but I learned how to capture some still photos from my video, so I included those, too.
Now here’s the video. You’ll notice it’s nearly two minutes long – she’s not one to give up. And she does this every time. Every. Single. Dam. There is a piece of sod placed on top of the dam in the bottom of the ditch to keep it in place, and Moxie likes to pull this sod out of the ditch as the water goes by (or over) her. For those of you subscribing via email, I still haven’t figured out how to embed video clips. You can go to http://asphaltcowgirlescapades.blogspot.com to watch the video.
And yes, it’s windy in the Madison Valley of Montana! We’ve talked about that before, too. My favorite part is Moxie’s utter disregard for me when I talk to her near the end of the clip. When there’s irrigating to be done, I don’t rate very high.
Tomorrow I’m headed for Jordan, MT to teach a beef cattle showmanship workshop. Look for details and photos of that adventure in a later post.
Yours in travel,
The Asphalt Cowgirl
