Small things...

Do you see that tiny red dot on Trevor's hand?

Do you see this 1 inch brad?

That brad, went in that hole in Trevor's hand.

Trevor and I spent Thanksgiving with his family in Colorado. If any of you haven't gathered that Trevor is a farmer, I'll provide a list of the activities. First, we went horse back riding. Trevor has two horses, Reba and Mac. Reba used to be really ornery and no one could ride her but Trevor. Now she is too old to be fussy, and I think she sensed that Trevor loves me, she was nice and I was able to ride her, while Trevor rode the feisty, Pepi.

Trevor's sister's horse Diamond, had a colt a few months ago, we believe the father is Mac, so I guess that makes me a grandma? When we were done riding the horses, Trevor helped his dad halter break the colt. Trevor is REALLY good with horses, what normally would take a day or more, Trevor had done in 20 minutes. It was really neat to see.The next day we went to Trevor's uncle's house to brand the new calves. I didn't get any good pictures of that, just a few of cow back sides which I'll spare you all. The one biggest thing about branding was STINKY!!! Burnt hair always smells bad, but add the aroma of cow, with just a touch of smoldering flesh. I think you get the picture.
