Videos of Sale Cattle on YouTube

There are videos of many of the females that will sell this Saturday on our Sales and Events page on the website. Some folks are having trouble viewing them, so we have uploaded them to YouTube for better ease in viewing. Go to

So if you can't make it to Lodgepole to see the cattle in person, this will give you a good idea of how they move and look.

Fun in the water!

July 8, 2010 - The morning after

The water is still coming through. But the clean up begins!

The day after the flood

More pictures of Flood 2010

More pictures of the water covering the headquarters.

Flood 2010 - water is coming fast!

Water is coming, and it was decided we'd better get some donors moved. Good thing too, or they'd have lost a lot of weight swimming.

5:56 am July 7, 2010

This is when the water first broke through at the headquarters of the ranch. This is not the usual creek bed, but when it floods this is where the water goes. The crew was loading up bags of mineral when we started to hear the water coming. We were there to see it push through.

Flood of 2010

Well I suppose a flood at the ranch deserves some blog time and it is a chance to post some photos.
Everyone on the ranch is fine. We had time to take cattle to higher ground and move some supplies. No one imagined it would be as powerful and invasive as it was, but for all intensive purposes, we feel very lucky!
The water rushed the outside of all of the houses, but didn't cross the thresholds into the homes. The fences weren't as lucky, as they were the catchers of debri and branches. The barns and out buildings were a couple feet deep in water, so they are a muddy mess to say the least. Branches, logs, railroad ties, moss, rocks, and what not cover the place.
But, we've got a crew of the hardest workers I know, so we'll have this place put back together in no time!
Pictures will hopefully follow - as soon as I get it figured out! lol

Thank you for your many prayers and support!

"Always grateful for the miracle of Mullen!"
