This time of year, my husband feels a bit like a boomerang. He is caught between the two major components of our livelihood: crops and cattle.
We're midway through harvesting winter wheat, which means he spends at least 14 hours a day - and usually longer - in the field and on the road hauling the grain to storage.
But when the weather prohibits harvesting, he's catapulted into the cattle side of the business, searching for cows.
And searching for cows.
And moving cows to new pastures.
And searching for more cows.
You can see why this is a time consuming task. Look closely; we actually found some cows!
Then the wheat dries out again, and it's back to the harvest field.
Back and forth. It's a grueling schedule.
But it's a nice view.
