Fall.

It's fall here in Eastern Oregon - my favorite time of year!
 
Clint tells me the fall cows at the ranch are all but wrapped up calving - just about 50 left to go.  The trees are changing, partially feedings of hay are getting flaked, and a light dew greets us most mornings on the lawn as head out to work before the sun rises.
 
The feed trucks roll all day long, as calves start to fill the pens over at the feedlot.  Trucks bringing in weaned calves are a daily sight, and trucks hauling out grown Holstein steers are a welcomed site by the pen riders.  :)
 
We're prepping for a sale on the 11th at the sale barn, and Clint leaves tomorrow to judge the NILE.  Normally, I'd go - but we're headed to Kansas City the first of the month with friends to the National Angus Convention, so I'm staying home this time to take care of some things at work and watch the dogs.  Work - while still busy, has at least slowed down enough that we're going home at our normal time each night.  Payments are going out the door, and we're prepping for more later this month.
 
How's fall where you are?
