Ranching, not always Glamorous

When ranch life is documented it is usually of Cowboys and Cowgirls horseback working cattle with very bucolic scenery all around.  Unfortunately that is not the "normal" kind of work we do on the ranch. 

This time of year the days consist of checking the first calve heifers, feeding and then doing all the necessary repair work on the fences or water tanks.  

Yesterday Troy spent the entire morning fixing water leaks that were caused by the extreme cold spell a few weeks ago.  He digs the leaks up with a shovel, and is usually covered in mud before completing the task.

The digital scrapbook pages below document Troy and his trusty helpers doing the not so glamorous work that is involved in the up keep of a working ranch!
