Well, fiddlesticks. I can't get the pics on here. If anyone is interested in seeing them, I have them posted.

Petey, I just finished reading the blog and as always loved it! The pictures and your comments are great. I love the dogs, the cows, the calves, the goats, your life on the ranch and everything you write about!! Not sure I could adapt to such tough conditions though, I have been spoiled to forced air and heat too long!! I always look forward to your next post!...Ginny

Loved the blog and the part about Cider and the calf brought tears to my eyes. Such a beautiful thing.

Cider was probably wanting you out of his way so he could get the job done right. You have so many photos that are art, not only in this post but in every one you have previously posted.

Thank you Mike, that is a really nice thing to say. I appreciate the compliment! It is very hard not to take good pics here, it is such a beautiful place to live.

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.
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!!!
