The snow this winter has been great. We have been able to feed most of this winter with the bobsled. Jared and the kids have lots of fun with the teams. Sometimes Jared is unable to feed and the kids have to do it all. The boys are old enough that they can catch, harness and feed all by themselves. If you look close at the pictures you can tell that they also like to have fun while they do it, they each take turns riding in the sled behind the wagon, they get to do a little sledding while feeding, "kill two birds with one stone". Why Not??

We got the opportunity to do a horse sale for Newell Moss last month, in Salina, Utah. He had a great turn out and some really nice looking and well bred horses for sale. This was Newell's first herd sale and he was selling some Champion Reining, Cutting and Working Cowhorse bloodline mares, bred mares, weanlings, yearlings and stallions. Newell has been an AQHA production breeder for 30+ years. We were privileged to be part of this sale and to be able to associate with many AQHA breeders/producers like Newell. Thank you Newell, for letting us serve you. Here are a few pictures of the big day.

The boys have been out working to help clean up after winter. Waylon loves to move manure, I know weird, but he has moved a lot of manure this spring already. Ty and Virgil harrow every chance they get, they love driving the teams and seeing the way the pastures look after they harrow it, and how well the grass grows back after the harrowing is done.
The picture makes it hard to see, but this is Virgil driving Terr and Thor a team that JP has been working with all winter for a friend of ours.
Her is Waylon hard at work. Even though he is pretty young, he is pretty darn handy with the skid sterr.

We purchased a small herd of first calf heifers, at the first of January. When we got them home we went right to Freeze branding them and getting them turned out on the bird refuge. It has been such a mild winter for us here in Utah, which is good and bad, but we hope spring comes when it is supposed to. As usual the whole family helped out. The kids where still on Christmas brake and they where happy to be able to work the new cattle when they got here. Overall very excited about the new additions to our cow/calf herd.
