BLACK HILLS AND BACK CHILLS...IN 2 DAYS...


Cool youngster....

This is Esperanza or "Snort", gaited Sulphur Springs filly -at IRAM since JUNE 2011



IN THE SPUR OF THE MOMENT we decided to drive up to the Black Hills to see the winterfrost, pick up the horse trailer with ALL my tack and get a good dose of wild horse ambience (not to mention seeing Cognac, Arrow, Desertsand and for Melody Montego and Esperanza). Little did we know that the cows had been brought in the very day and weaning was in progress. So I know weaning of colts and fillies and there is some hollering involved but I had NEVER imagined what the weaning event of 135 cows would involve. IMAGINE A PLACE - a river valley that echos....with the crisp winter air to deliver spearlike decibels mooing through the chink of the little cheyenne River cabin...woooow...we slept through it, nonetheless and were up early in the morning to precede the feed truck and visit with some of the horses I had worked with over the last couple of months that were now out again on the coffee flats and otherwise. That is except for Cognac and some of his consorts who had decided to return through the channel back to the ranch, where feed and good company was awaiting...Melody had good time with her little chosen Sulphur Springs Filly...
