Wednesday Night Cattle Drive

Before I knew there was this huge blogging world I would write the most random posts, just posts about day to day life and nothing special - seriously people, I'm talking really random. Guess What?! I miss those posts. The ones that required little thought but I look back at them now and am thankful I wrote about those little random moments and memories. 

So I'm bringing them back, throwing some 'blogging rules' aside and just writing!

Last night we went to chase in some naughty calves that had escaped under the fence, which was fine with me because it turned out to be a beautiful night for a drive.

The pairs (cows and calves) have been out to pasture all summer and it is almost time to bring them home to the feedlot - when they come home they will be weaned (mothers and babies separated) and all I will hear is mooing and bellering for weeks, can't wait to see Brea's reaction to a full feedlot and all the noise!! Brea did really well last night, though, hardly barking at the cattle and did only when they got close to her window to sniff her out!

The fall colors last night were out in full force even though we have been having summer-like temps in the high 70s and I don't mind at all because 50 just seems too cold right now! Plus this warm weather will be perfect if it stays the weekend because I've been invited to a blogger weekend in Grand Forks, complete with a wine event - I am super excited and can't wait to meet up with some other North Dakota bloggers! Follow this hashtag on IG and Twitter to see what we are up to #grandforksgetaway
