I shoulda gone to Curves to exercise this morning but the cows won out. We stopped at Chile Bandera to get bean and cheese breakfast tacos with fresh chopped onions and red hot sauce. We saved them until we drove to the back forty and parked just inside the gate to eat and watch for wildlife. We didn't see a wild hog, wild turkey, or deer. Nothing, not even a roadrunner or rabbit. The weather was so nice though. Cool and cloudy. When we finished our breakfast my orders were to check the fence for breaks on the right and John would check the haygrazer on the left while we drove the perimeter of the field. Everything was A-okay. Then we drove to the east side to check on Betsy. We haven't seen her in a while. The mesquite trees and bushes are so thick and heavy with green leaves we can't see far into it to find a cow from the highway. When we drove there we did find her. She is still living alone there and drinking out of the mud holes in the creek and has plenty of green grass. On the way back we stopped at the stock tank for me to feed my precious turtles. They like tortillas as well as bread. What self respecting creature in south Texas would not like tortillas? While we were driving around John said I may buy about five longhorns. Not more then a week ago he said he was going to buy me one longhorn. It will depend what he finds that fits his pocket book at the auction in the weeks to come. The cow in the picture is not his. It is one that was for sale some weeks back. I want one with longer horns then this one . At one time he had a small herd of longhorns but they aged and some died and some were sold with other cattle. The cloudy cool days are helping but we are starting to need rain.
