Lookin' For "The Looker"
We went lookin' for the looker this morning. Remember she is the cow that never takes her eyes off us and never gets too close and never turns her back to us. I would say she doesn't trust us, wouldn't you? She is due to have the first calf she has had since John brought her to the ranch so he likes to kind of watch out and see if they and the calf come out okay. We finally found her on the east property and no baby yet. It was cool enough for a light jacket this morning and it felt sooo good. All the animals were huddling I guess because we didn't see anything but lots of Meadowlarks busy as little bees. The cows are not overly fat but they are surviving and do have short green grass so they don't pay a lot of attention to us. John is still giving them some supplement feed about every three days. Just heard on the police scanner there has just been another oifield explosion out near John's hometown. Gosh I guess that goes with an oil boom but I wasn't expecting that many (three) that quick. Hope no one is hurt.
