Spring has sprung and sprung and sprung!!!!

Yesterday we got wet enough to make up for the lack of moisture that we've had.  there's still hail all over the ground in the shady spots.  It must have rained and hailed for three or four hours yesterday.  I lost two more dogies because of it but my chicks seemed to weather fine.    Even so, I went out this morning and sprayed weed killer on my garden and the drive way at my mom's,  I sprayed the weeds until I ran out of spray,  we'll see if it works.  

The sheep are out on the mountain.  The cows are out on a different mountain.  a portion of the cows from the desert are home and hopefully by tonight they'll all be home.  One sprinkler line is running they should be coming to put in the pivot next week, and the farming is only beginning, IF we get all the cows home from the desert.  

All the May birthdays are finally out of the way and, NO, I (the Throwing coach)didn't get to go to the state track meet. =(  Yesterday Chance was sick all day long with a stomach flu of some sort and so far no one else has shown signs of it except maybe me, but I'm pretty sure that doesn't count.
 
I CAN"T WAIT for school to be done and hope that Caib and Braden's grades don't suffer from their absences this week,  but we had to have their help with the cows and sheep.  Buck has not had her foal yet but we're all anticipating the day. Boy was she upset when they left her home alone in the coral......allllll day!
 Angie Our beloved yellow lab ended up missing on Thursday morning, but come to find out she had jumped into the trailer with the horses when they were loading up to go gather cows off the desert and she refused to get out of the trailer.  I'm not sure why because she'd already worn her self ragged when she insisted on going with then to take the sheep out.  That was the day Aubree went to help and it was a loooooong day.  I was relieved when we finally got a hold of the wranglers on the desert and they told us that, yes, they did have Angie, sigh.  

I sure Love spring time!!!!!!

Spring sure sprung a nice thunder shower on us yesterday. I, of course, slept through the whole thing.
