A Day in the Life of a Rancher's Wife

Waking up at 6:00 am on a Saturday.
Chores.
Puppies. 
Horses.
Dogs.
Rams. 
A three hour car ride to the winter range.
Falling into sagebrush.
Lassoing and loading 20 pregnant sheep.
Mastitis.
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.
