This week on the ranch…
It has been a cold, moisture filled week on the ranch, and this morning the sun came out to warm us all a bit. The frost perseveres, and temperatures continue to challenge. Before we know it, the days of January will pass us by, and we will continue to drive on through the midwinter blues.
Here’s Teddy – or Ted – Jeremiah’s faithful border pup on the feed trailer. For us the chores of winter can seem repetitive, sometimes frigid or even mundane. Regardless the task, the temperature, or time of day, our cow pups don’t turn down the invitation. Maybe a lesson in enthusiasm, grit, and easily offered joy for us all.
That’s Linnaea, completing the never ending collection of baling twine before feeding the beeves. We do this for a few reasons, namely so no twine is left in the field come summer and fall, when it’s time to cut hay. We also tend to do this before taking the feed truck to the pasture so that we can start dropping flakes right away. No one wants to be cutting, wrapping, and collecting strings while being bombarded by hay-ready cattle.

This week’s story: “Sheep in the Deep”
Jim is our main UPS guy who gets your beef headed toward SLC. We often fill his trailer, and he’s got to negotiate a sometimes blizzarding high altitude pass in some of the most remote country in the U.S. I’ve driven the road he’s navigating many times through the night, and for over 2 hours, I’ll never pass another car despite it being a paved state highway 28. It’s a place where you can see the road 15 miles ahead. Nothing. Just high sage ringed by snow-capped peaks marching endlessly over the horizon.
High, wide and lonesome.
And he makes it. I can’t think of a time when he hasn’t. Jim’s pretty dang gritty tough. I used to fight fire with him years ago in the forests around our country. He comes from a stock that isn’t too common nowadays, brought up on ranches all over the remote Rockies. One day, as we were loading a truck with beef, he related a story about his Grandpa, and I’m going to pass it on once again to all of you. We are in weather that can go amuck in just an afternoon, just as Jim and his cohorts were one day on the way home from church. Read on for a short but interesting Sunday drive across the high plains of Colorado…
