Two retired high school teachers from Southern California move to a 100 acre ranch in rural Northern New Mexico. Why the name? 510 is our livestock brand, so Nickel and Dime it is.

Temps in the '70's, and then, Bam!
K and J are visiting and brought snow. Just last week while I was hiking about in my shirtsleeves, I thought, "These little sprigs of grass are cute! I hope we get some moisture soon to keep them growing." I was feeling a little gloomy, worried that the steers would not have enough grass to last until July, which is when the natural grass-fed beef co-op buys them.
So now we have the moisture I asked for: First driving rain, then little hail pellets followed by large, gloopy flakes of snow, until we settled into something more serious. More snow is expected today.
