Hopefully the droughts just about over for you. Where do you ship your cattle too? Is this something you need to have done by the time the snow starts to arrive ?
No, snow or not doesn't matter, they have sales year round, just that the majority of weaned calf sales are in the fall through winter.   We've put the calves on the truck and have a blizzard the next day.
Drought is predicted through the end of the year.  Sure hope it breaks, or we're screwed, the pastures are in rough shape, they really need a good snow cover this winter with a slow melt in the spring, along with some well times spring rains.

Chanda, Hope your girls pick up soon. Must be hard for you, with ordering specific feeds. I wonder why your having issues with the girls and not the boys ?
The boys tolerate more grazing, the older girls get foot sore if on grass too long, and with the drought this year, the droughty grass was worse for them than our normal grass.   Two of the girls foaled last year, and just never quite recovered as nicely as they have in the past.   Mostly having topline issues, which is protein deficiency (and of course exercise).   [The boys "pasture" got watered, as it's downhill from where Shayne fills the water tanks that are used to fill the sprayer and that we used to haul water to the cows for two months, takes forever to fill, so they always overflow some, thus watering the boys' pasture, well part of it anyway.]

Julie , hopefully Spanky picks up quickly. I agree that a good base hay is an absolute must. I couldn't be happier with all my horses this year, big and small. My base hay this year was a Grass and Clover blend. Added alfalfa to feeding throughout winter and "everyone" is looking amazing. The grass has gone "bang" here over the last month so my wallet has gone "Ahhhhhhhhhhhh" :)

If she is with that many other horses , I reckon she will be glad to get out of that place. Not saying anything bad towards Large breeders, as most do amazing jobs. Some large breeders  on the other hand get way in over their heads and before you know it, care and individual attention has gone right out the window.

Hope you decide to give her a home. :)
