2 past crew members of ours, Jake (front) and Anthony (middle), paid a visit to the ranch last week to hang out, run some horses, and practice a little roping!
Here’s Melanie this week on Reba, a quarter horse/draft cross mare. She came to us with some rides on her, but the girls got busy with other things and didn’t have time to get her going last year! This spring, Melanie and Annie (6th daughter) are getting her ready for the range. This ride was her first time out, and she did great!
Quote of the Week
“The sun was warm but the wind was chill.
You know how it is with an April day
When the sun is out and the wind is still,
You’re one month on in the middle of May.
But if you so much as dare to speak,
A cloud comes over the sunlit arch,
A wind comes off a frozen peak,
And you’re two months back in the middle of March.”
-Poem by Robert Frost
This week’s story: Springtime in the Rockies
This story is by our 2nd daughter, Abby. She and her husband Ethan live near Alderspring. Both work here at the ranch while also raising their pastured pork.
Weather is coming. All of us can feel it. I get up at 7:00 because, even on a Saturday, my 1 ½ year old daughter doesn’t believe in sleeping in. She ordinarily calls, “Mama!” “Dada!” from the other room until one of us comes to get her to snuggle with us. She won’t go back to sleep, though. Her green-hazel eyes (her Dad’s eyes, we’ve yet to have a blue-eyed child) are wide open.
Reluctantly, I pull on cold dirty jeans. It makes more laundry than sense to put on clean jeans every day when you’ll be doing the same outside work. Probably gardening today, on hands and knees, clearing the winter covering of hay from the perennials.
Leaving the one year-old in the living room with a book to read, I step outside to check on the pigs. At 8-10 weeks old, some of them are the size of house cats. A number are at the feeder when I come, and they run away, barking a warning, as soon as they see me. There’s no grass in the paddock now. In a few weeks, there will be enough to graze at the ranch, but for now they are here, in what you might call Piggy Boot Camp…

Thanks again for partnering in what we do!
Glenn, Caryl, cowgirls and cowboys at Alderspring.
We’ve been crafting our pastured protein here in Idaho’s Rocky Mountains for nearly 30 years and delivering it direct to our partners for nearly as long. This is wild wellness, delivered from our ranch to your door.
