I couldn't stop laughing! He spilled the feed after he tripped and hit the ground. He just knew Hank was on top of him. Not until he saw the video, did he believe Hank was standing 5 ft away!

She was rodeoing this 4th was at Ft. Pierre, done with the rodeo and fireworks were going off.
Put Dully in her trailer, got up about midnight, put him in the arena as all yards were taken, saw young people partying but didn't think anything of it, got up at 6am he was gone. Terrified went looking for him along with many others, seems the partiers had rode him down the main street so hard ripping his shoes off. Tied him to a tree roped his legs, beat him took his front and back legs with ropes an stretched him out he fell to the ground, tied his legs as you would a calf and roped and beat him, he is cut all over burned his legs, the dad of the one kid hid him at his place another kid found him told her to get the sheriff to go there not to go alone, i am sure they were going to destroy him. They brought him to her his head fell into her arms. She rushed him to vet his legs were swelling an after washing him off found it to be even worse. Today his legs broke open and can see the tendons, if the tendon stays on the bone and if they can keep infection out. He may heal but I don't think he will be the same from something so terrible.She is beside herself. There is more but this is enough for you to know the jest of it all. We need your prayers Can not believe anyone would do such a thing, and the Dad had guts enough to tell the sheriff he wanted Wendys phone no. he had deep pockets, he makes rough stock saddles at Ft. Pierre.seems to think he is above the law of any kind. Don't they hang horse thief's in SD???"

My rent-a-husband asked that I take some pictures of his very old cows. He was having them put down because he knew they would decline in the harsh summer temps. He wanted to keep them from suffering. I believe they were some of his first rodeo cows. The ones he started his herd with so they held a special place in his heart. In fact, he couldn't even take them to be put down. He had to get someone else to come and get them. Nor was he at home when they loaded them.
I ordered the prints for him and they are having them framed in a collage barnwood frame. I was glad that I could be a part of perserving his memories. And that he thought enough of me to ask. Granny and Memaw will live on.

Just knew the day was going to be a good one. And it is but about 8 miles from the house, I got mad. Some idiot had ran thru a man's pasture fence during the night and left a big hole. The man's cattle were out in the bar ditch and on the road. I called the husband and ask if he would take care of it. He was headin' down there with a bag of cubes and wire. I had to go on to work but he was gonna try and get the cattle back in and patch the fence. We don't even know who's place it is. But I would want someone to do the same for us if we were in that situation.

This week's assignment was Wildflowers. Well, our wildflower season ended in May. Everything is dried up now. But I did get this pic a month or so ago. The husband and I were driving back from a bull futurity and saw this sunflower field. He was nice enough to stop and allow me to grab some photos.

I finally managed to wrangle the dogs away from the chicken poop to head back home. I was just glad the neighbor wasn't home to witness me taking pictures of his poop piles. Imagine explaining that one!
As I walked back up my drive, I realized I was forgetting something...I had pies baking in the oven!! I ran to the house hoping they weren't burnt. Luckily, my poop escapade stopped just short of burning my pies.
It's called the Knock Your Socks Off Buttermilk Pie! Found it in the Texas Co-op magazine and thought I would try it. Let me know if you want the recipe and I'll post it. It's very good but oh so very bad!

Here's Oreo's baby boy runnin' like the wind.
These two little ones were born on the same day. The cool thing about that is the cow on the left, Red, is the cow on the right, Pecan's, mother. And the babies look almost identical. Red's baby is a heifer calf. Pecan's is a bull calf!
And of course, I couldn't show off calves without a picture of Itty Bitty!
She has grown some. She can no longer walk under her mom's belly. But the newborn babies are still as big or just a bit taller than her. In fact, she was born 2 months ago. If you look at the picture from yesterday, that was her on the left and a small week old calf on the right!
