Were we efficient this morning or what? Had breakfast on the tailgate on the stock tank dam in the cool morning air. Then looked for the two new calves and was home by nine. I took some stale bread to feed the fish. What fish? I sure don't have a throwing arm any longer but we did get the turtles to fight over the bread. John gets bored with that in a hurry. Feeding turtles doesn't make a living. We had to look a while to find the cows. They have a lot of places to hid on the nearly 400 acres. As we went down the lane to the back forty and as we turned a corner we came upon the mama cow and her new calf. It is so tiny and has ears that stick out like its about to fly. It is the first one born and the mama is not so squeamish about us looking at it now. Little calves are so curious. It stared at us staring at it. The second mama is still protective of her baby and headed for the brush. John thinks they are both bull calves but not sure from a distance. Yes Jack he would prefer girls but you take what you get. Be nice to get somemore rain now. The grass looks good but will need more rain to keep it going. John is doing his talking to himself saying I could use a few more cows on this place and we sure could use a couple of inches of rain about now. The picture is an old one of John burning pear for the cows to eat. Not having to do that now. The flowers are starting to fall off the cactus (pear) and soon the pear apples which the flowers fall off of will turn red. Probably middle or end of May and the cows will eat them. When we go out the cows will have red all over their mouth and it will look as if they missed their mouth with their lipstick.
