By 7:30 we were on our way to the north corral ('krell' is how they say it up here). It was cold but clear. First we had to gather the cows and get them into the 'krell'.
The cows came in (to the krell) pretty easily, but they did not want to be sorted. The in-laws had quite a hard time.

After sorting, we weighed them and loaded them onto the trucks.
|We weigh about 10 cows at a time.|
|It takes four trucks to haul all the calves.|
|The excitment proved too much for some.|
|I guess I should have cleaned that donut icing off his face before he went to sleep.|
The kids and I went home about 2 so we could properly nap in the bed. My husband got home around 6. It was a long, hard, dusty day, but it's how we make our money.
