     While this weather is holding this nice, this would be a likely time to get those stud colts gelded. It won’t be long before the colts minds get on things other than feed and water and if you’re running fillies and colts together, that can be a problem, especially on the older colts. Go ahead and have their wolf teeth removed and brand them while they’re off in lala land too. That way, when green grass arrives, all you have to do is turn them out and hope they don’t get into the fences.

     Well, that’s my circle for this week. Have a great week, pray for moisture in the areas that need it, pray for those affected by the flooding in California, and please, pray for our nation. May God Bless America.
