There are some days - when it is just plain cold.
When your bed & nice warm home beckon, and going outside is the last thing you'd like to do. But when you live on a ranch, that isn't an option. Those cold days are when cattle need humans the most; to feed them, make sure they're protected from the environment, and to look after little calves who might need a bit more attention.
So you get out of bed, you get dressed in lots of layers & your favorite jacket, and you head out.
Because even in the cold - the beauty that surrounds this lifestyle beckons.
And it always wins.
We had a pretty good cold snap for this area in December, but the midwest & northeast really got socked by extremely frigid temperatures and wind this weekend. The ranchers there are in our thoughts - especially those that are calving right now - and we hope that you'll get through this weather successfully and without loss.
