its that time of year again... out with the old and in with the new. cattle that is.
around july the cattle from the winter get shipped off to another ranch, and a new batch of summer cattle come in and will stay through september (ish).
with the days heating up very early, it means the work days start before sunrise to be done before the real heat of the day sets in.
so right at sunrise the cowboys rode out, gathered the cattle and got em ready to ship off. i met them back at the pins (where they are sorted, counted and loaded on to the trucks) to snap a few pictures to share with y'all!
the pictures above are from the first few loads, the pictures below are from the last few loads they shipped that day, at another location. this was only the first of a few, hot, and long days of shippin'!
with the last load heading out, thats a wrap.... at least for today!
