The cowboys finally came back late in the afternoon...
or should I say lion-less.
The dogs lost the scent.
What they did get was....
STUCK IN THE MUD!
Poor guys, after 8 hours of tracking mountain lions the last thing they wanted to happen was to get stuck in the mud.
Cowboy Chris to the rescue, he brought out the tractor to pull the horse trailer out of the mud.
Some guys like to watch it all happen.
The horses waited patiently.
Just about done.
Sophia is learning how cowboys work in the mud.
Isn't she cute!
Looks like the tractor did its job.
Off they go.
