Megan’s Dirt and Fun Before the Sun…

After almost three months of summer vacation, my three girls went back to school yesterday.  While we are all looking forward to having more of a routine to our days, I have to admit that I will miss not having them around as much.  My two favorite blondes spent quite a bit of time with me this summer at the feed yard and it will be a bit quiet with them back at school!

Enjoying a beautiful dawn at the feed yard…

One of my “summer” goals was to engage my girls and encourage them to continue learning through the summer months.  Below is a video of my favorite 10 year old emptying a pen of cattle at the feed yard at the beginning of an exercising session.  In addition to starring in the video, Megan also edited the video to include music for your entertainment.  Many of you will remember that Jason Aldean’s hit “Fly Over States” is one of my favorite songs—well, Megan likes it too!  I think that the combination of the song and her video shows clearly what happens in a “Fly Over State”.  Happy watching 🙂

  1. Good job Megan! Having lived and wandered over those “fly over states” I got a bit sentimental watching your video. Excellent job!!

  2. Dawn

    Learned her momma’s lessons well. Way to go Megan! Couldn’t be more proud if she were my own.

    • Dawn, I am so very proud of her also. She does a great job and has an affinity with animals that is wonderful to see. She is a great “student” and loves the time that she spends with me at the feed yard. Megan is a prime example of the great things that youth can learn on a farm!

      Thanks for commenting–

    Nebraska is definately a “fly over state”. I laugh when ever somebody asks me how I could move from “Beautiful Colorado” and love living in central Nebraska because it is so flat!! Megan makes it look so effortless to move the calves around the pen!!! Such a natural!!!

    • Bobbi,

      You are right–Nebraska is a wonderful state to live in. Our sunrises and sunsets across the flat plains are spectacular!

      I will pass your comment onto Megan about her cattle handling–she will be excited to see it.

    Really a cool video and you are awesome with the cattle – watching you work is an inspiration and I look forward to the day my 8 week old daughter can learn from you! You would be welcome on our ranch any day of the week and twice on Sundays!

    • Dr. Tom,

      Thanks so much for your comment–I have passed it along to Megan. While I am sure that she would love to visit your ranch someday, I’m not sure that I want to give her up! She’s pretty handy to have around 🙂
