This week on the ranch…
The signs of summer approaching and warmer weather are plentiful. This is a busy season, with summer help on the way, transitioning to full time irrigation, and preparing to return to the range with some of the beeves. Then there’s the usual flow on the ranch, including our calving season, which is in full swing, with about 60 on the ground now – plus our first set of twins (see Linnaea’s picture later on). One of the spring tasks is working with horses, which oldest daughter Melanie manages and does the majority of. Here she is working with one of the younger horses we acquired last spring.
Here’s an image taken by Linnaea (third oldest) of the set of twins that arrived this week. Our approach to calving is mostly hands off, and we try to keep our distance and let the mamas do the work. This way we avoid stressing them out, and interfering with what they are very well equipped to handle. Linnaea took this photo through a set of binoculars from a distance. It’s rare that we have to intervene, but it does happen occasionally.
Linnaea took this photo of the half border collie half Labrador retriever Stew, who as you can see is the latest trained crew member in the operation of heavy equipment.
Wesley’s dog Monty had a litter of pups at the ranch a few weeks back, and thus arrives another generation of ranch pups. We never have any kind of shortage around here.
Montana snapped this photo over at the lease ranch, where he was setting up another hot wire paddock. Most of the yearlings are over there right now, and with green grass coming up and grazing season upon us, there is always more hot wire to be built.

This week’s story: “The First Flowers of Spring”
It took awhile, but spring is arriving. I couldn’t believe it yesterday, but I happily noted that one such sure-thing risked an appearance along the banks of the roaring-with-snowmelt Salmon River yesterday.
It was the serviceberry, coming into bloom. I had almost forgotten about it, even though I have a particular affinity for this humble tree.
Rather than going on here, I realized I already had a piece I penned a few years back. You see, sometimes the character of one plant wends its way through story–and history. As a result, it becomes part of the fabric of us–of our being. The Sarvis, or Serviceberry, is one such.
Maybe that’s why I love it.
