A few weeks ago the cactus all looked like this, full of blooms. They have mostly fallen off now but the pear apples that they grow out of have not turned red yet. We didn't stay long at the ranch this morning. It is sooo hot here now even early in the morning. We filled the water tank for the renters and rode around a little. We found the two new cows under a big oak tree. Meany was lying down and when she heard the truck she got up quickly and kept an eye peeled on us. Seems they have located and they are always together. I always wonder if they don't like the other cows when they do that or does the other cows not make them feel welcome. John expects two or three new calves in the next few weeks so that is always fun to look for them and see what they look like and if they are a boy or a girl. John is already planning to sell the big black bull or his son and maybe both he says. He has a new white bull who will be grown soon so he plans for him to father the calves in the future. Drives me crazy those big black bulls are so majestic to me. He probably has five logical reasons to sell. Not much to write about these days. We are just staying under the air conditioner and out of the hot sun.
