Cheap Help

After a rain shower this morning, the sun broke out this afternoon, providing a beautiful day for moving the cows to another pasture. We gathered the help that was handy for the job, and we found that, as usual, you get what you pay for.

Scout: free, and worth every penny.

This was Riley's first time helping us, and he may be the first country kid to emerge from an experience moving cows without being hollered at by his parents.

This little helper didn't quite earn her pay today.

She fell asleep in her mama's arms on the ride home.

Her quote of the day: "I'm a cowgirl, Mama. I got boots."

Isn't it amazing the situations that little ones can fall asleep in despite the noise?

Wish I could do that!
