We ride in the mornings to check the cattle. This usually takes anywhere from 3 - 5 hours riding. We check on new-born calves and their mammas, check the waters etc. When it's time to move the cattle, you help gather and drive the cattle to a new pasture. Our grazing management puts emphasis on giving the plants long rest periods before being briefly grazed again. Therefore, we move cattle frequently.

In the spring when most of the calves are born we begin branding and vaccinating the calves. Often we help neighboring ranchers gather and brand their calves. During the mid-summer months we continue to check on the cattle and move them to new pastures. We may have some late calves that still need branding. In the fall, September and October, we gather and ship cattle and also spend a lot of time helping neighboring ranchers do the same. These are busy times, with oftentimes long hours in the saddle.

In the afternoons we tend to have a dozen ranch chores to do - anything from fixing or building fences, brush control, to putting out salt and mineral for the cattle and wildlife, or anything else that may come along. You are more than welcome to join us and lend a helping hand. You may elect to take a drive in the afternoon to nearby Ute and Conchas Lakes, with boating, fishing and swimming. There are several sites to visit in an afternoon in the area. There may be a local rodeo or ranch rodeos going on too.
