The pink eye in the cattle has seemed to slow a bit as well. Fewer animals needing doctored, and many of them that were treated seem to be healing up. We've been riding through the pastures on a regular basis to try and stay ahead of it. The usual fall herd work will begin later this month and they will all be brought in once again and given a thorough exam.
Yesterday we visited my parents... traded some horses around and Tom and the girls rode through their cattle as well. Kate and Little Bit- both of whom were pasture exposed to William- were turned out for the fall and Ruby and Scarlett were brought home in their place. Ruby had a well earned rest for the summer, but her younger full sister, Scarlett, has had more than a year off. Scarlett is six this year. Tom spent a calving season on her when she was 4, and she's been turned out since. I'm hoping she has retained her lessons well.
It was late when I got to visit Neechi and Eloquence last night, so no new pictures but they are both doing well and growing strong. I'm still looking forward to weaning when we can have them in and handle them daily. Both of them seem to have such different but fun personalities.
Signing off for now- lots of apples to peal! Hope this post finds you all doing well, and I'll check in
