Yes I'm accumlating my own herd, but my herd doesn't eat or make those nasty cow patties. When you have more then one place and a large ranch (leased) sprinkled with cows from time to time you will loose one. Sometime one will get snake bit and die, sometime they will eat too much of something that will bloat them and if you don't catch it in time it will die. One time lightening struck a wire and it fell on a cow and electrocuted it. One time a long horn got her horns all entwined in some wire and went around and around a tree until she couldn't get away and she died without water or food. Sounds sad but it is reality on over 1000 acres you cannot see all cows everytime. When we find a cow scull I can't stand to pass it up. Stop and think where those sculls with bluebonnets or other country scenes painted on them sold with arts and crafts come from. They were someone's cow at one time. So I collect them and put them in my yard. One with pretty long horns in my ivy bed, two under a tree, one by my birdfeeder. I think its better to remember them this way then to leave them in a hot field or have a stranger find it. Sad but true my herd is slowly growing.
