This week on the ranch…
Though the end of November is upon us, the beeves still have access to beautiful green grass under a layer of crusty snow. The herd continues to thrive and grazing goes on. We are thankful for the abundance which allows us to wait before breaking into winter stores.
The cold temperatures in the valley have been relentless this month, and this weekend has brought some 30 degree relief. With a bit of snow atop green grass, all under skies that look like this, our awe in the midst of changing seasons is immense. Each evening begins a little earlier than the last, and as the sun dips behind the hills we are left with a work of art and a lack of daylight. It is the season of a warm wood stove after long days working in the cold with our warmest gear.
Quote of the Week
“Thanksgiving is a time of togetherness and gratitude.”
This week’s story: “A Thanksgiving Card From Alderspring”
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday at the ranch, and as we gathered around a table surrounded by friends and family, we are reminded yet again of all for which we are thankful.
Enjoy this story from a Thanksgiving day a few years back.
It was the weekend before Thanksgiving Day. Winter had already staked claim on the country, but we had to ride.
Thirteen-year-old Melanie and I left the woodstove warmth of our cozy kitchen after a breakfast washed down with hot coffee. In the mudroom, we put on silk scarves and oilskin slickers over wool and leather to ready for whatever winter winds would dish out on the high ranges. At this time of year, the right kind of clothing serves as a boundary between life and death, and the gear we use is chosen carefully.
Snow spit in our faces in the pre-dawn black as we headed to the barn. Jess and Josiah were already there, getting their horses tacked up under the dim light bulbs that illuminated the tack room corner. Border pups wagged a welcome as we came into the light. In a few minutes, we had our own horses caught from the corrals outside and led them to the far end of the long barn to join the others.
