We have many loading days on Fryer Ranch, but this day is special as oldest GS, Caden got to help today. A day off from school gives him the opportunity to strut his stuff (so to speak). He called Pops last night several times to make sure that he understood that he wanted to be picked up "early". He came adorned in his "cowpoke" attire of boots, jeans, and cowboy hat complete with a turkey feather. This is a key issue as you will read later. His first question is "what do I get paid"????? Pops keeps avoiding this issue until he sees just how devoted Caden is to really "helping". The cattle buyer guy-Curtis- picks up on this right away and assures Caden that HE will be glad to pay him to help. This excites Caden to no end----
The final drive up the shoot is done safely "OUTSIDE" the shoot.
A little tail gate sitting finished this job off, but the next one was soon to follow.
Isn't this just the cutest little cowboy you ever saw???
I didn't follow them the rest of the day, but Caden helped work small calves today also. I only saw him at the house when he got hungry. Bisquits and cheese and a turkey sandwich besides the lunch in town that his Pops bought for him. The boy can EAT!
