Round Up 2008

In all the years that I have lived here, I have never got any pictures of my cowboy Jake and the other WF guys bringing the cattle off the mountain. They started on Monday at 5:30 am and have been gathering for several days. Yesterday, they brought them all the way down to the valley. So bear with me, but I wanted to show some of the cool pictures that I took of them bringing the 500+ head of cattle down.

Here is Jake- he was up front yesterday, keeping the front ones moving! My cute Cowboy:
I know this one is a little hard to see, but that is the line of cattle from a distance.
They start on this side--------------------------and go to this side of the picture.

Grandpa Kendall was certainly glad to get them home!!!

It is always a lot of work to get them all home, Jake's knee definitely felt the many days of riding a horse for 10-12 hours a day!

Getting them all in the field is a good feeling- It was a good year, with no big injuries on the cowboys part! Isn't Jake cute?

The girls loved to watch the steers and heifers coming down the road!

They had lots of help from Jared, Milen, Blue, Troy & Ben
When all was said and done, Tai got to have a ride on Ruffy with daddy! She got to ride him all the way to the barn! Thanks Daddy! Teya doesn't really like to get on them to much- she just likes to feed them weeds!

Hey! Your pictures are VERY good and your little girls are super cute! Yeah, Jared is doing something totally different than he was...he has worked in motorsports/marine sales for a while, now he's on a marketing team. Thanks for visiting us!
