That's the Sound of the Men, Working on the....Arena
Last weekend the boys brought out the big guns and got to work on trying to get our top rail up on our arena. They first had to get the roping boxes all measured out and those posts put in the ground. Then they had to finish putting the last corner in. We have decided to round our corners and that takes some extra welding time. But I think it will be worth it in the end. Little Cowpoke put on his "Superman Cape" and went out to help work. Never fear, Little Cowpoke is near! He would run back and forth, "helping" the big boys work. Little Cowpoke is always wanting to help out and get in there and get his hands dirty. He calls himself a "Working Man". It also helps to throw dirt clumps. Just look at the green grass trying to grow! Super crazy grass!! Don't you know it's January?That is my view from my back porch. I hope I don't regret having all that dust and dirt so close to my house! I wanted to be able to watch everyone ride their horses from my air conditioned house!! Whuahhahaaa!! Who am I kidding, I am going to defiantly be out there in all that dust and dirt! Cowpokette wishes she could be out in all that dust and dirt too!She is pointing to her Daddy wanting to go out with him. But she is still in her pajamas! I told her, "no", so she turned around and tried to find a way there herself. Here I was telling her, "NO!!!" and she just sat there shaking her head and saying, "Uhhh". She was going to crawl under the barb wire. Little Stinker. Then she tried to act like she wasn't interested in going under the wire. She was just sitting there picking grass. Yeah, I almost fell for that. Not quite!! See Belle? She is looking at me because I was standing there yelling, "NO! You come here right now!!" Cowpokette finally gave in and came back to the house. The men worked all day long. They were trying to get all the welding done before the rain came. The cows and one bull were all looking and wondering what in the world those crazy men were doing! I love how curious cows are. Then at about 2 in the afternoon the storm clouds started moving in. What is really cool about living in the south is you can actually see fronts coming. Can you see this one? And sometimes you can see fronts coming when you are driving, and you will be in the sun and then just ahead of you it will be pouring rain. It's really neat. But You can see the two arrows pointing to Mr. Cowboy and his Dad trying to weld like mad men? Then the rain came!!It first started sprinkling and they kept working. But that didn't last for too long. Then the flood gates were opened! And he was STILL working!!! Isn't that dangerous? Welding in the rain? I don't know too much about welding, but to me that seems dangerous. But they got just about all of the top rail finished. We have one more corner to weld and about 80 feet left of top rail. Hooray!! I am so excited. Watch out horses, here I come!!
