It is hard to believe with all of the preparation and anticipation that goes into going to the National Western in Denver, Co, it is quickly a memory. This year was especially special with meeting many new Juniors excited to be with and showing their cattle. Some farms it’s 3-4 generations involved. That is a great sign for not only the Highland breed, but also the future of agriculture.
The Almosta Gang consisted of Tom, Bailey and Reilly McConnell. What a great team we made. In taking care of 8 animals it does in fact take a village to pull it off. But, one of the highlights of the show this year was getting to know Kate Zander. She fell into helping us and made a huge difference with the whole week.
I also talked to a group that is planning on organizing a “ranch” in the Denver area for Autistic kids. It is still in the planning stages and I am sure it won’t take long to become a reality. I am hoping that I can in some small way be of some help.
So now, things are put away and the next exciting thing for Almosta Farm are the new calves coming next month. Stay tuned for pictures.
May the rest of your winter be without troubles and your calving season a healthy one.
