|The two MIC ready to go (most important cowboys!)|
#1 MIC rode her pony over to the corrals. Pony is MIP (most important pony). Mom is the MIH (most important handler). Then we have #2 MIC demanding attention from MIH.
|Some participants in this ritual were none too happy about the brief separation.|
|Vaccinating each calf.|
|Branding each calf with our brand -- see the smoke? Hot iron right out of the fire. Does it hurt? Sure it does but only briefly.|
|MIC #1 practiced her riding. Grandpa couldn't find the NEW pony blanket Grandma bought her. C'mon Grandpa!!! The horse blanket is TOOO big.|
|Our brand on #2 son's saddle.|
|When you get bored you can always throw rocks, sticks or whatever you can find into the pond.|
|Ratchet & Melody were not sure what the MIC's where up to with that rock throwing!!|
|For the finale, you can STOMP in Grandpa's 'broken' water tank, now his cow feeder, which makes a GREAT NOISE!|
And that was the weekend at Sixty Miles North of Nowhere. It was sure fun.
