The Cattle are Here!

They are here!  The Cattle are here!  And in complete Montana Ranch Adventure Fashion!  We got a phone call from the first trucker Saturday morning, they had their truck and the next one behind good and stuck on the road (mind you it is 15 miles of gravel/dirt/mountain road from the black top to the ranch).  We thought they might be stuck way up high on the mountain.  Wrong!  They were stuck near the base of the mountain where you begin to climb up it.  So we got the big tractor and started forming a plan!  I will let the pictures show!

After a few hours of towing and some good driving, all of the cattle and trucks made it safely to the ranch.  The road doesn’t look terrible by any means, but it was incredibly soft for those heavy trucks!  Lessons learned.  The trucks on the second day came in from the West instead of the East!  Click here to see the video!     Don’t forget to “Like” our Facebook Page as well!

With a lot of hard work, obstacles, long days, and dedication, we are truly living our dream!  What is your dream?


Foto Friday

Ok So I’m a bit late for the Wordless Wednesday Post so Foto Friday (I thought I would improvise, plus I love captions)!  Here is yesterday in Pictures!  So awesome to watch the kids with their Aunt Jewel!  Its been nearly 3 months since they saw her, quite a change from nearly everyday when we all lived in Timber Lake!  Life sure takes us different directions.

Aunt Jewel is not afraid to play in the snow – snow pants or no snow pants!


She wore the Wildman and Holly Dog out!
