I haltered our milk cow, Buttons, and weighed her on our scale – she weighed in at 950 lbs. Powder River The trick to getting a halter on a skittish animal, Ally the heifer. I fi nally got a halter on Ally “YAY!” It was 28 degrees F, which felt really warm after how cold it has been. Our friend called saying he’d found a lion track, so my brother Kip and I took four dogs and three sleds up to where he said he’d seen it. The snow was pretty crusted and knee deep. We let the dogs out and three of us followed the dogs while the other two drove snowmobiles. Most of the dogs were pups so they weren’t much help. We fi nally quit because the lion was walking on top of the snow so the dogs lost it. We built a fi re while two guys went to get the other sled. Kip broke the starter rope on it so we had to pull it out to the pickups with our sled. We got stuck with our sled on the way out.
