I'm trying very hard to do what the doctor told me to do, exercise but---- before I can get out the door and away from the phone John calls. He is stranded at the ranch with one wheel of the truck caught in a deep wild hog rooting. He can't move the truck forward and he can't move the truck back. I wonder what he thinks I can do, be his partner in crime? He is waiting for the cowboy with the horse, but this time with the trailer to haul Big Boy to auction. Yes John had a trailer and still has a small one but we can't see ourselves going down the road with a big bull in it and it gets to rockin' and rollin' with his weight so that is the reason to hire a trailer. John is on a much smaller level of ranching then he used to be that it doesn't pay to have everything. When I got there we drove a cow and her big calf down the lane. John on foot and me in Old Blue to sell along with the bull. They drove well and went straight to the pens. John's daughter got there with her larger truck to pull him out of the hole. Those wild hogs cause lots of problems sometime. When the grass and weeds grow over the holes you don't see them until you drive over them and it rattles your teeth and bones. Cowboy had other jobs lined up so he didn't get out there until after lunch. Big Boy is spending the night up the street at the cattle auction and will be sold tomorrow. There should be one more extension of him in about nine months as he was working in the pens today.
