I was looking up all of the different verses in the Bible that talk about horses in them, and this was one of them. I thought it was kind of interesting and had to think about it for a little while.
After thinking about it, this is what I got out of it:
Back in the Bible times, their source of transportation were horses and chariots (along with your own two feet of course). People put lots of trust in their horses and chariots. They were the things that got them from point A to point B.
I personally think what this verse is talking about, is putting your trust in God, not just horses and chariots. And that goes for any earthly thing: your car, your job, your family, your friends, and really anything else you put before God.
I want to be one of those people who puts my trust in God, not my horse and chariot. How about you?
On Saturday Tierra, Dad, and I went out into the feedlot and picked out our 4-h steers. We are stuck with them now because the rest of the steers got shipped off to Nebraska yesterday morning. The feedlot looks so empty now.
I ended up with the calf that I’ve had my eye on for quite a few weeks. He is a brocal (black and white face), and has an awesome side profile.
I was kind of uncertain as to if he was the best pick when we took him out of the feedlot the other day. But, when I went down to see him yesterday, I was glad that I picked him out! He’s got me convinced!
He also seems to have a good disposition and a nice personality. Which is always a HUGE thing when picking a steer that you will be haltering, petting, showing, and spending lots of time with. A steer with a good disposition will make your overall experience so much better.
Can’t wait to really start working with him! Tierra and I are planning on haltering them for the first time later this week.
We are so excited about this years steers! Tierra has already spent crazy amounts of time with hers.
All of the cows are home from the mountains! The last of the cows rolled in yesterday mid to late afternoon. It was a pretty chilly day with a few inches of snow on the ground and the temperature being in the twenties throughout the day. It was one of those days that you had to make sure you are dressed warmly. It wasn’t terrible except for about an hour when the wind was blowing a little bit.
The day before yesterday, Grandpa, Dad, Colton, and Levi went up to Ledford along with a few other ranches to get the cows gathered and sorted. After our cows were sorted from the other rancher’s cows, our cows were trailed a few miles down the road to a pen. They stayed in that pen until the next day when we trailed the rest of the way home.
