Workin' Hard



Being on a ranch means hard work. There is no room for slackers.







It is clearly a stressful and challenging life. Even for the animals.

LMAO Petey, looks like my yard in Feb, well except for the snow and the ice crystals. That is our month of NOTHING to do. However, October is shaping up nicely for some down time for us too:)

I worked on a ranch in 1966 and if that picture was taken at that time, somebody would call a mortician to clean up the mess! Rest came every second Sunday and for three hours every Sunday morning after wake up chores.

Those animals (even the bipeds) are clearly over worked! Great photos. Thanks for sharing.

About Me
Kids are raised, we are ranchhands on a 250,000 acre working cattle ranch 110 miles from the nearest small town, so we raise a lot of our own food, vegetables, fruits, milk,eggs and meat. Love riding and working cattle, but find myself spending a lot more time in the kitchen, and the garden. forpeteysake.blogspot.com http://throughthedarkestvalleys.blogspot.com/
My favorite things to cook
Having 2 Jersey cows as well as milk goats, playing with fresh milk is a hobby, making our own butter, yogurt, sour cream, cheeses, soap and all the other great stuff you can do with fresh raw milk.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Homemade from scratch...anything! All traditions are sort of gone by the wayside, as we live so far from family now
My cooking triumphs
Most things from this site, this has been the best thing the internet has had to offer!
My cooking tragedies
A layered Jello dessert...the middle layer never set, so it did the 'ooze-wiggle'...and...well..I liquified a couple of chickens on 2 different occasions, turning them into a black gel. Moral of that story is, don't start cooking then go clean barns!...and there was the time that my kids were helping me make Thanksgiving dinner and SOMEbody (who resembled my youngest son) forgot to put the sugar in the pie!!!
