Psalm 20:7| A Verse from the Bible that talks about horses

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?

What did you get out of this verse?

Doctoring On Horse Back

   Hey guys!

   On today’s post, I have some pictures of dad doctoring a cow with a bad leg.  The lighting wasn’t the best, and I didn’t take close enough pictures, but I still wanted to show them to you anyways.











Dad threw a beautiful loop and caught the cow first throw.  He got her doctored and we were on our way.

That’s all I had for today’s post.  Thanks for reading, and I hope you are having a great start to your December!

It’s Time to Come Home {Bringing cows home from the mountains}


It’s Fall!  That means it is time for cows to start making their way home from the mountains.  All of the calves are home and most of the cows.  Some of the cows are still up there, but will be coming home November 4.  We also have some spayed heifers that were up in the mountains.  They came home as well.

Table of events:

October 6-9: Ruby roundup

We have cows in two different places; Ruby and Ledford.  October 6-9 the Ruby cows were all rounded up.  If you want to know more about what consists of the Ruby roundup, go to, Ruby Roundup (A four day journal).

October 11:We went back up to the Ruby. Sorted cows from the calves.  We also trucked calves home.

October 12-13: We trailed cows home.  It was around a forty mile walk home.

October 14: Vaccinated and weighed the calves.

October 15: Headed up to Ledford and trailed all of the cows to the corral.

October 16: Sorted cows from calves.  Trucked our calves home.  We will trail cows down the beginning of November.

October 17: Vaccinated calves that came home from Ledford.


That’s a pretty busy twelve days!  I didn’t do the Ruby roundup.  Grandpa, dad and Colton did those few days.  But I did do the Ledford cows.  What a fun (and busy) time of year!  So, if you were wondering what our Fall consists of, there you have it!
