Our Little Ranch Hand

Brody is a true cowboy at heart.  He lives and breathes for the moments when he can be outside with his dad, and the cows, horses, and dogs.  
He's our little ranch hand.

One day, the cows had gotten greedy with the water trough and pushed and shoved one another and the trough until it moved, causing water to go everywhere and creating this mud hole.  
Brent needed to keep the cows away so he could move the trough back under the water source to refill it-- this video shows his finest employees at work: our dogs, Ruger and Cash.  Their job was to chase the cattle away and keep them away. Ruger takes his job seriously, but Cash is still learning.

Brody is fearless, completely fearless, and is always wanting to ride the calves.  This is a video of him riding one of our bottle calves out in the barn.
There are so many things going on in this video that make me laugh.  I love how Brody bobs his head as if he is experiencing some serious bucking action, while spurring his heels.  The calf thinks Brent is his mama, and is trying to find a meal.
