IN LIKE A LION OR A LAMB?
New Horse
Allan found this horse through his friend Brian, in Oklahoma. He is about 8 years old, and very kid broke. The grandkids already love him. He walks out smoothly and is a pleasure to ride. The perfect addition to the ranch for me, and the kids.
We named him Sprite, to compliment our other horse, Pepsi.

Working the Cattle 

Allan, with the help of our grandson Kyler and his friend Liam, gathered, sorted, and weaned the calves this last Sunday, in spite of some pretty cold and windy weather and temporary corrals that were less than perfect.

On the Road
I make the drive from the ranch in Arboles to Pagosa Springs at least once a week, and some days the views are breathtaking. I have shared pictures of Chimney Rock with you before but had to share a couple more from this past month. 

And one day the mountains were peaking through the clouds creating the most beautiful scene. The thing about pictures like these is that if you don't stop immediately to take the picture, the chance to capture the beauty passes very quickly and the scene can change completely.
Grandpa's Helper

Teeg will be 3 years old this month. He is such a joy, and there is nothing he would rather do than help grandpa with his chores. 
They were getting ready to go out and feed the dogs and the chickens.

In Closing . . .   
We had a snow storm come in yesterday, the last day of February, dumping about 5 to 6 inches of very wet snow on already muddy ground. Unlike most years, we did not get severely cold weather (below -15 degrees) this winter, so the ground has become a mushy, deep muddy mess, creating very difficult working conditions and roads that are pretty torn up. I am not complaining, because the moisture is welcome, but we are definitely looking forward to warmer and sunnier weather. The green grass is just beginning to peak through the brown winter grass, promising good days to come. And my greenhouse is nearly finished so I am hoping to plant some veggies and flowers later this month. 

I am sure all of us, for various reasons, are looking forward to summer and all the beauty that it brings. God bless you all. Stay warm and don't forget to cuddle someone you love.
Lois & Allan
