A Day in the Life of a Rancher's Wife

Waking up at 6:00 am on a Saturday.
A three hour car ride to the winter range.
Falling into sagebrush.
Lassoing and loading 20 pregnant sheep.
Three stomach feedings. 
Our first set of triplets. Seven babies total born today - our most yet!
Bottle feedings. 
Assisting with a birth.
I'm exhausted. Good night.

Dear Veronica, Shudder! You must be exhausted! You are amazing, I'm imagining if I had to do all that I'd be in fabulous shape in a few days! :) So proud of you for making the transition and loving it! xoxo, Rachel

I wish I was in shape! ;) That would probably help a ton.

Aren't those days the best?

Amy - they really are. I feel so productive on busy days like this one. I love having such an active part in the operation.
