Saturday Drive

Saturday was a day for driving.


Cattle, that is.




......................................................................................

4:00 am wake up call (I can't complain....these guys woke earlier then us)

Horses to saddle




*Note, I felt like Marlboro Man when I downloaded this picture...notice my horses ears?

Cows to gather

5 miles of highway to trail (can you call it "trailing" if you're on the highway?)

People driving by...

...taking pictures

...recording videos (we felt like charging money for their "experience")







Tired calves who needing some coaxing to keep going...



Good thing Mason and his mom were ready with their sticks...



Trailers to move

More miles to trail off of the highway

People to round up

Bears to see (yes, I saw my first bear Saturday!)

Sandwiches and chips to munch

Rocks and sticks to throw

..........................................................................

Though tiring, it was a day spent with friends...

And cute kiddo's...



And though everyone's rears were sore the next day (mine still is today, and I only rode half the time!)...

It was worth it. I think if asked, we'd do it again tomorrow.

Thankfully...we don't have to!

Have a great week...

...And Happy Birthday Lindsay!
