Ranch life’s monthly challenge-June Memories.

Okay, so first, here is a story! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m gonna do several! ๐Ÿ™‚ Here:adayinthesaddle.jpg

๐Ÿ˜€ Yes, as you can tell from the picture, and title, we had our first day of GATHERING CATTLE!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ It was a LOT of fun, but also pretty hard! ๐Ÿ˜› Now you can’t really focus on doing a good job with the cows AND take pictures, so there aren’t very many pictures…but I’ll show you the ones I have! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜€

Up at the barn. Time to stop taking pictures and CATCH MY HORSE!! ๐Ÿ˜› Hehe!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

Finally home!! ๐Ÿ™‚

I was having fun playing around with close-ups and decided to do one with my shirt! ๐Ÿ˜€

Saddle horn.

Okay, so a lot of people ask me: “How do you gather cattle? What do you do?” Well, in answer, here is a little summary of what you do!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

So first you have to get dressed in jeans, and a long sleeved shirt. One that will keep the sun off your arms. THEN you do your hair (usually in a braid so the wind doesn’t blow it away…okay well not-) and go outside. Then catch your horse and brush it. And then put on the saddle, and blankets. Then you tighten the cinch- but not too much, cause you want them to still be comfortable in the trailer- and go get other things, such as a water bottle, spurs, …camera…. :/ ๐Ÿ˜‰ And also make sure you have the bridle somewhere attached to the saddle! ๐Ÿ˜‰ THEN you load your horse in the trailer and drive out to where ever you are gathering cattle! ๐Ÿ™‚ And unload your horse and bridle it, and tighten the cinch. Then you ride out into the pasture, or down the road or both. And go into a pasture, find ALL the cows in it, and herd them together, then herd them through the pasture/onto the road…etc! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ You want at least one person on the back, pushing the cows (or if you have good dogs, they can do that), and then someone on the sides to keep the cows together, and usually someone in the front to have the cows follow!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ Then you herd them (eventually) into cattle pens, where they’re counted, and loaded onto cattle trucks, and hauled away to go to feedlots and then be butchered! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜€

There, did you like my little explanation? ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ™‚ Hehe!! ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜€ Okay! ๐Ÿ™‚ So…there! ๐Ÿ™‚

Painting Cattle pens.

๐Ÿ˜€ This wasn’t EXACTLY the definition of fun…but it was too.. ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€ We went out to the cattle pens with our paint and PAINTED THEM ALL!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ It took two days! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜› We put on a loooong glove, then a short one, then another cotton one, and then dipped our hand in paint, then just rubbed down the fence!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ We also built the cattle pens, so it was pretty cool to be building them, THEN painting them too!! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜€ I can’t show the pictures of us painting cause they’re too private, BUT there were some eggs that I HAD to take pictures of! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜› Hehe!

008.JPG

pretty right? I’m PRETTY sure they’re killdeer eggs, but if you know for sure, please tell me!! ๐Ÿ˜€

PUPPIES!!!

Soo… we have a lot of puppies, so OBVIOUSLY we had to PLAY WITH THEM!!! Two litters were born in June ALSO!!! :O ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ™‚ Now THAT IS FUUUUUN!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜€ Now these ARE some pretty old pictures-BUT still in June! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Here are pictures:

One last picture!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€

Updte on Aggie’s puppies! Did someone say they wanted pictures!

Okay, if you haven’t read the last post then read it here!!!!

AHHHH!!! Okay, by now you know that my dog, Aggie, HAD PUPPIES! ๐Ÿ˜› xD ๐Ÿ˜› if you didn’t already! Okay, if you’ve read that last post, then you know that Aggie had five puppies right?! WELL, SHE HAD MOOOOOOOOORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :O :O :O Now (and I think she’s done for good now) SHE HAS:

EIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, my baby Aggers has EIGHTย  PUPPIES!!! :O ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ™‚ย  :O :O ๐Ÿ˜€ I don’t think anyone guessed that… if you did, then please let me know! ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  ๐Ÿ˜€ Last night I went to check on her at about 11 pm! ๐Ÿ˜› And she had eight! ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ™‚ Megan Guessed 7, so she was the closest I think!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜› YAAY MEGAN!!! ๐Ÿ˜› Hehe!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜€ OKAY WHO WANTS TO SEE PICTURES!?!?! Someone said they wanted TONS of pictures..sooo HERE you GOOOOO!!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜› I don’t know how many boys or girls yet, but I will probably know in about three days! ๐Ÿ˜‰ And also, just so you know, I probably won’t use your name suggestions, cause I have my own preferences, but I still love to hear what You might name them if they were yours! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Just so you know! ๐Ÿ˜€ I think it would be neat to name some of the thirteen (yes, we have another litter that we still need to name! :O ๐Ÿ˜€ With Agg’s and Berny’s there are THIRTEEN!!!! :O)ย  after tools!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ Like Boomer, Ratchet, wrench, bolt, nut, socket, etc etc! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜€ But…I’d love to hear a few names that you think are neat! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜› I’ve already gotten a couple I like..but if you know what I mean (I DON”T MEAN TO BE RUDE) I sort of like to come up with my own. But your favorites are great to hear!! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜› Anyway..yeah! ๐Ÿ˜› The pictures are taking a loooong time to import. :/ ๐Ÿ˜‰ Sadly.. ๐Ÿ˜› Hehe!

My Awesome Daddy!

THE most amazing, awesome Daddy EVER!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ™‚ I love him SO much! Sadly, I didn’t realize it was fathers day until Friday, so I wasn’t able to give him anything. I know, that’s pretty bad. But I think giving him hugs all throughout the day was enough! ๐Ÿ˜€ God blessed me SO much with giving me the most amazing Daddy for me! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜€ He’s always knows exactly what to do/say …ANYTHING! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜€ And believe me, if he has to have ME – an energetic nut and many other things…- for a daughter, he is GREAT!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ He has helped me so much with everything in my life. He was the one who gave me my horse, and I got Aggie from him, and he also helped me train both of them.

Hard days out in the sun delivering mineral to cows, or just checking on them! And I went because I wanted to! He never told me I had to! In fact, I would have been mad most days if he hadn’t of told me he was going!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ I’ve learned that, if Daddy is going ANYWHERE, I need to jump at the opportunity to get some more Daddy time! And whatever happens, even if I’m just handing him Pringle chips while we’re driving, it makes an amazing memory! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜€ And we have so much fun together!

Hot days out in the sun Painting cattle pens! ๐Ÿ˜€ And getting them done in only two days! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜€

Days working with horses in the arena!

Helping him put the goats out on their chains outside before leaving!

JUST HAVING FUN WITH MY DADDY!!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Anything, ANYTHING we’re doing, if Daddy is there, I’m gonna have fun! ๐Ÿ™‚ He never even gets angry! It’s crazy!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜€ He’s so fantabulous!!!!!!!!!! (yes, he taught me that word! XD) I love to do anything to make him laugh, too! ๐Ÿ™‚ Him tucking me in every night that I ask him to (and every other one too), even though I’m 11! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ™‚ We even have our special ‘routine’!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ ‘Hug, kiss, kiss on the forehead, then do the ‘I love you’ sign language thing, and then a five’…I love Daddy! ๐Ÿ™‚ Look, just writing this is bringing tears to my eyes! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜€ He’s so great! Showing me fishing techniques, to helping me make desert (every now and then! ;)) Helping me with my Faith in the Lord Jesus. Letting me sit with him during a movie. Reminding me to feed my fish. Always having a good attitude about everything, and being funny! ๐Ÿ˜€ And he’s never funny in that ‘adult humor that isn’t funny at all’! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ™‚ Sometimes we’re rolling on the floor laughing at a movie line..or me pretending to act like our goat…etc! ๐Ÿ™‚ Anyway, what I’m getting at, is that he is an AMAZING daddy and I love him SO SOOO SOOOOOOOO Much! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜€ He’s AWESOME! ๐Ÿ™‚ I don’t use that word unless I feel like it’s pretty appropriate…and I do! ๐Ÿ™‚

๐Ÿ™‚ Okay, I hope all of you had a great day too!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ And if you didn’t already, don’t forget to tell your dad ‘Happy Father’s day’!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ™‚

You might wonder why I didn’t do something like this for Mother’s Day? Well, I meant to..and I wish I had’ve…but I didn’t have time cause we were VERY busy that day. :/ ๐Ÿ˜‰ Anyway, My mom is also AMAZING!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ™‚ I love her SO much! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜€ She’s the best EVER!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜€ For mothers day (we remembered in time..) I and my two sisters got her a bunch of flowers, some chocolate, and a gift card! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜€ Most of which she’s already used! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€ Hehe!! ๐Ÿ˜› My sisters, mom, and dadย  are ALL amazing! ๐Ÿ˜€ I love them SO much! ๐Ÿ™‚ God couldn’t of paired me with a better family! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜€ Okay, well…I should bring this post to an end now… ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€ Thanks for reading!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ™‚

Bye everyone! ๐Ÿ™‚

His first name is Agent!” “I’m a huge fan of the way you … lose control and turn into a giant raged monster” “You’ve reached stark headquarters, please leave a message”- “This is urgent”-” Then leave an urgent one” XDXD ) Yes…I like quoting movies! ๐Ÿ˜› If you haven’t seen Avengers, then I’ll let you know, that all of those (other than the ‘This is urgent’ one) were Iron-man -stark- lines! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜› Hehe!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ Well, that was a long ‘fact’! xD ๐Ÿ˜› hee hee!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜€

here are my questions:

  1. Why did the chicken cross the road? (yes, that was SO random! xD ‘told you I was tired)
  2. ย Have you ever eaten cotton candy?
  3. If you could have more or less siblings, which would it be? If more, then older or younger and what gender?
  4. Have you ever seen any of the Marvel movies? (Iron-man, Captain America, Thor, Avengers etc)
  5. in your opinion, what do you think of this the girl that fits this description? Do you think you would like to know her? What do you think her name should be? here: She had Red hair and dazzling, but piercing dark blue eyes. She walked with dignity, but yet with power. She had a sense of adventure, but was also cautious. She was one of the nicest girls in town, but also one of the meanest.
  6. How many times a month do you usually go to the pool? If you don’t go that often, then how much in a year?
  7. Have you ever moved to a different house?

Wordcrafters-My part!!!!!

โ€œWhatโ€™s the matter, Esme?โ€ Vivi asked, looking over her shoulder.

โ€œIt- Itโ€™sโ€ฆg-go-โ€œ Esme started crying. Vivi saw that the dragon was missing from the basket and looked over worriedly at Pippin.

โ€œB-but โ€ฆhow? I thought you were checking on it, Pippin!โ€ Vivi looked accusingly at Pippin. He lowered his head, thinking.

โ€œI saw it in there a coupleโ€ฆdays ago.โ€ He said the last part a whisper.

โ€œPippin!!! How could you! You were in-โ€œ Vivi started, but Pippin interrupted.

โ€œItโ€™s probably not far… maybe itโ€™s even close!โ€ He said, trying to believe his own words.

โ€œYeah..โ€ Esme joined in, trying to end the fight. Pippin turned around and walked toward the trees and cave again. Vivi helped Esme up and she hobbled over to a tree. โ€œWeโ€™ll search, then come right back. Stay here.โ€ Vivi told Esme.

After searching for nearly 2 hours without any luck, the two finally went back to Esme and sat down for a rest. Vivi leaned against a tree and scratched her head.

โ€œMan, itโ€™s HOT out โ€ฆwaitโ€ฆโ€ Vivi trailed off. โ€œitโ€™sโ€ฆhot..?โ€ She was more talking to herself now. It wasnโ€™t pouring rain anymore! In fact, it was very sunny and hot, and there wasnโ€™t a cloud in the sky!

โ€œWhat in the worldโ€ฆ?โ€ Pippin asked, realizing also that it wasnโ€™t raining. Esme had pulled off her black cloak and was trying to put her black hair in a bun, to keep it from sticking to her neck. They were all covered in sweat too. โ€œThis is strange.โ€ Vivi muttered. โ€œShould we call Katri?โ€ She asked Pippin. He shrugged.

โ€œKatri!โ€ She called loudly. Nothing happened. โ€œKATR-โ€œ

โ€œWhat is it?โ€ She heard someone say. Vivi spun around to see Katri behind her, looking annoyed. That was quick. she thought.

โ€œWeโ€ฆwe need your help. We-we lost the dragonโ€ฆโ€ Vivi lowered her head, afraid of what Katri might say.

โ€œThe dragonโ€ฆbut โ€ฆit should be here soon..you did let it trail behind you like I said..right?โ€ Katri asked, now fully alert to what they were saying.

โ€œWellโ€ฆโ€ Esme said. Katriโ€™s eyes darted over to Esme and she walked toward her.

โ€œโ€™Wellโ€™ what?โ€ Katri seemed angry now, and Pippin stepped forward.

โ€œThe dragon seemed so friendly. I just carried it in the basket.โ€ Esme replied, sniffing.

โ€œyeah, you never said not to!โ€ Pippin declared, sticking up for Esme. Vivi glanced from Esme to Pippin. Then she walked over.
โ€œyeah!โ€ Vivi put in. Katri nodded quickly.

โ€œIf thatโ€™s how you want it! Just look for the dragon. I told you, you are not safe here without the dragon being returned. Now that you have held it and kept it close to you, it will not be able to defend itself. You had better find it quickly, because if it dies, you die. And…โ€ Katri’s eyes filled with fear, and then she quickly disappeared into thin air. Esme lowered herself to the ground and sobbed. Even Pippin looked as if he might cry. Vivi was just mad.

โ€œCโ€™mon guys! We have a dragon to find!โ€ She announced, marching off into the woods. Pippin dragged himself off the ground and took a turn helping Esme up and putting her arm around his neck, then followed after Vivi, looking to the left and right trying to find a little dragon.

Pippin leaned up next to a tree and took a deep breath. There was no sign of the dragon, and none of them had any idea where they were! But every time they tried to call Katri, she just ignored them. All three of them were dripping with sweat, and didnโ€™t want to keep on. For all they knew, the dragon could be 20 miles from them.
โ€œCome on, Pippin, we have to keep going.โ€ Vivi said tiredly. He nodded and took another step, then stopped again. โ€œIโ€ฆI canโ€™t, Vivi. Just keep going without meโ€ฆโ€ He said, sitting on the ground. Vivi looked at him hard and saw that he was thoroughly exhausted.

โ€œOkay, I guess Iโ€™ll keep-โ€œ

โ€œNO! We stick together! If Pippin stays, we stay!โ€ Esme declared loudly. Vivi looked back at her, surprised.
โ€œOkay.โ€ย  She gave in. Pippin flipped back his cloak hood and Esme gasped. His usually freckled face, was as red as a tomato.

โ€œOh, Pippinโ€ฆโ€ Vivi said, her eyes huge. โ€œYou didnโ€™t sayโ€ฆโ€

โ€œWhat!?โ€ Pippin asked angrily, โ€œThat since Iโ€™m a redhead, I get sunburned very, very easily and badly? Well I doโ€ฆโ€ He sighed, and rubbed his face, leaving it stinging even more. Vivi brought over some of the potion for injuries and sprinkled it onto Pippin.

โ€œBetter?โ€ She asked. But Pippin shook his head when nothing happened.

โ€œOh noโ€ฆthe potions, they..they arenโ€™t working!! Do you think Katri did somethingโ€ฆโ€ Vivi trailed off in thought.

โ€œOwwwโ€ฆโ€ Esme groaned in pain. Her ankle was all swollen up and sore. Vivi sighed. โ€œWell..I guess weโ€™re staying here tonightโ€ฆโ€ She set up camp and Pippin helped her find some wood and kindling. He had a lighter in one of his pants pockets, and they used that to start a fire.

Esme was curled up inside her cloak, sound asleep. Vivi was using her pocket knife to scrape at a stick, and Pippin was deep in thought.

โ€œVivi? Do you have any siblings?โ€ He asked thoughtfully. She shook her head, then seeing that he wasnโ€™t looking at her she said no.

โ€œwellโ€ฆI doโ€ฆโ€

Vivi stopped scraping and looked up.

โ€œReally? I never knew that!โ€ She admitted.

โ€œAn older brotherโ€ฆDevin. He looks sorta like me actuallyโ€ฆI miss โ€˜im..โ€

Vivi didnโ€™t like to see Pippin this sad, it was too weird. Vivi was about to reply when she heard a whistling noise. What was that? Pippin heard it too. Then all of the sudden a blur fell out from the sky, landing about 10 feet from them. Pippin walked over there to see what it was and gasped. Vivi walked over, and was surprised to see that there was a boy, that looked like an older version of Pippin, sitting on the ground. He looked about 18 years old. โ€œOuch.โ€ He said simply. Pippin smiled hugely. โ€œDevin!โ€ He yelled, helping the 18 year old up.ย  Just then a huge beast ran up from behind them. Devin turned around. “There it is again!!!” He cried, as if he had seen it before.

Vivi lookedย  closer to see that the beast was their once small dragon!

“Well, we found our dragon!RUUUN!!!” Pippin yelled, running for the camp as the monster screeched hideously and flared its nostrils.

“We’re dead.” Vivi muttered under her breath.
