a real yak attack

K, my baby, my sweet sweet baby, got attacked by a yak yesterday. Not cool yak, so not cool.

the culprit

To be real though, K is not a ranch dog. I know he walks and talks the part but he's just not a cow dog (or yak dog in this case). He wandered right up to the strange animal just like they were old friends. Not the smartest idea when said animal is a lot larger than you and has pointy horns, just sayin. He found out soon enough why this was a bad idea. Poor poor baby, he's still recovering.

He did make friends with Oliver though. Who is Oliver you ask? He's the newest addition to Haven Springs Yak and an orphan. His mommy died. Sad right? Well, Oliver is being very well taken care of so don't be too sad. He's a happy guy and thinks that Jay, or anyone that feeds him his bottle, is his mommy.

including me!
what the bangs? someone help that poor girl.

He loves A too but kicked K right in the face a few times after this shot. 
Once again, not the smartest dog.

This is Jay, Oliver's real parent. He owns part of the herd, takes care of the yak and lives at the ranch. 
If you look up "cowboy" in the dictionary you'll see a photo of Jay. Seriously.

There has also been a ton of flooding at the GR this last week. We've gone up twice to sandbag. Notice the beautiful row of sandbags in the back. I was there to photograph the event for posterity and to make sure K didn't get swept down the raging river. He would sink like a rock. No joke.

In other news I went to my niece's school program last weekend and it was Oscar worthy.

and the men went fishing at Green River and had a wonderful time.

Aaaaaaaaaaaannnnnnnnnnnnnddddddddd...that's it.

Madre Day

Happy Mother's Day to all you ladies out there! 

But I have to give a special shout out to the best mother in the world, my mom!!!
I love you mom and I wish you could be here to celebrate your day with me, to see your new 
grandbaby Mason and to tell me to give Kipling a bath because he stinks.
I love you and I am grateful that we are an eternal family.

All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.

we're here!!!

We arrived safely! Kipling is loving all the attention. We are so happy to be here.
I never thought that I'd be so excited to drink tap water again.

I don't really feel like writing anything today. I'm exhausted but so happy.

More to come.
