Here’s a couple of characters I sure couldn’t do without around here. Patty and Ruby….my chore team….and my cheer team too.
We keep each other company throughout the entire day. Ruby holds her post in the tractor at my feet.
And my dear Patty follows me everywhere else except the tractor. This rancher gal never needs to feel lonely with these two around.
Here is an example of them assisting me with returning our bulls back to their own pen after being out for watering. I have all my penned animals on a somewhat rigid schedule so I can keep up with the myriad of indoor activities on a farm gal’s plate…like bill paying, book keeping, meal planning and preparation, baking and sewing. (Notice that house-cleaning doesn’t always make-the-cut….hah-hah).
Needless to say, Team Patty-Ruby are invaluable to me and the entire operation on this ponderosa.
