They all lined up very nicely for me.
So that was one of my firsts, I came within five feet of a cow or should I say cattle since there were so many of them.
I would have taken more pictures BUT a cow step on my camera and broke it so now I'm cameraless until I "borrow" Cash's camera. Anyways the story on how my camera broke. . .
After we arrived and I took my pictures Cash and I went with Cash's cousin Josh to go get some of the cattle that didn't make it when uncle Ron rounded them up the day before. As we rode on the four wheeler to the other corral we had to round up some that were near the corral but yet not in the corral so we had to spook them to turn around and run into the corral. That didn't really work. We got one of the cows back in the corral but then the other one freaked and started charging at me. I thought if it would see me it would freak out and turn around. . . NOPE. It decided to charge towards me and I decided to dive out of the way. But when I dove, my camera fell out of my jacket pocket and then the mean cow ran over it. The sad part is that I didn't even realize that my camera was missing until later that day when I wanted to take pictures of seperating the calfs from the cows and then branding them.
So I don't really have any more pictures, but I do have something else to tell you all. I've decided that if my teaching doesn't work out I'm going to become a rancher or just become a professional cattle brander. Haha. Well all of the other firsts are not as exciting as my cow charging at me. But some of my others first are that I ate my first whole wheat pancake, helped brand my first calf, and slept in my first cabin/shaq. It was awesome. I had so much fun going to the ranch, Cash and I decided we will make it a tradition every year. So Ron, if you're reading this or one of your children's are count on us to be there every year.
