It had rained in the night, but we were up early enough to see the sun rise. After breakfast we saddled up to head into the hills to find the missing steers. We had found all but 40 the day before.
We found 24 of the steers, the others brought in 16. Here we are herding them towards the smaller pasture to join the others.
After finding the steers more easily than expected, we found ourselves with an afternoon off. Some of the Irish went to town to go shopping. The rest of us went on a scenic horseback ride with the ranch owner Art.
There was an older couple on the drive, Lee had taken a fall from his horse earlier and was feeling a little stiff and sore. My dad hit it off with him right away, here he was teasing him and helping him walk to his tent....a couple of old duffs.
