RANCH TOUR3 August,2015Dawn Bowman Branding was safe and successful thanks to our family and friends who helped out! We are thankful for a good irrigation system for our valley. Hay field at Bow K Ranch. First cutting on Dry Creek at the home place. Spring has finally arrived - Gunnison pasture and corrals. Clearing the trail for accessing the irrigation headgates. Pairs arriving at the Gunnison ranch for a cool summer and lots of feed. Cows grazing their way to higher ground. Cattle enjoying their summer pasture. Dave pursuing a calf that needs doctoring - corrals two miles away! Cattle grazing in Berry Gulch. Utilizing the four-wheeler and dogs for moving cows. Our "senior" Border Collie named Copper. Bonanza as a pup in 2014, purchased from Master's Hand Training. Bonanza loves to work cattle. The last week before weaning. An overcast fall day for weaning calves. What's all the excitement in there? Checking cattle on a cool fall day. Kyanne learning "the ropes" of quiet cattle handling. Dawn and Copper enjoying a beautiful autumn day . Lenticular clouds at sunset. The snow level is dropping to lower elevations - it's time to move on. The cows traveling "down country" to a lower elevation and less snow. A dry warm January in Olathe made for a comfortable cattle drive. Bringing cows home for calving. Calving pasture at the Bow K.
