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 hate that the only time I could get over there to take the pictures was mid-day so the lightening was not favorable. And of course, the old girls wanted to stay in the shade. I had to apologize for the shadows.
But the old gals worked with me pretty well.
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.
