April is SUCH a busy month for us and it mostly surrounds itself around branding. I have learned not to schedule anything on the weekends because The Rancher already has them booked full. Our cows calve out on the desert north of the Salt Lake which means that rather than branding on the ranch we brand on the range. We load up the truck with food, toys for The Rancher's Boy and coats and blankets enough for all of Mother Nature's mood swings and then hit the road. Most of the time I am in the thick of it helping however I can, but since The Rancher's Girl is still so little (5 months!) I get to spend more time on the sidelines this year (that just means more pictures!).
