We went out late this afternoon to feed the cattle. They were "tankin' up" on cover. Mama used to use that expression when someone was eating to excess on one thing. The picture is an older one, the clover is not that high and not that thick. That may be a good thing as when they eat too much clover or tank up on it they can bloat and if something isn't done they can die. I was surprised when John told me he sticks a pin in them to let the air out. I thought he was kidding me. It doesn't seem to hurt them and it could save their life. Oh and that is not clover in the picture either but it is some of John's cattle. The one in the center with the long horns is part Watusi. He no longer has it.
