Okay Our Winter Has Come And Gone
It was a beautiful short sleeve sunny day today in south Texas. One of the new bulls walks among the cows making a deep guteral sound. I wonder what will happen when the big bull gets enough of his showing off. The only ones who didn't know the cold weather has gone was the turtles. Only one peeped it's head above the water when I called. It swam almost across the stock tank and I thought it was coming to eat. Instead when it got almost to me it sunk into the water never to be seen again. While I was calling to it I heard a noise to my right. A roadrunner came out of the brush. It was making a sound but it wasn't Beep Beep like in the cartoons. The winter weeds are green from the rain already and the tank is full of water. All nine baby calves are accounted for and everyone is happy at the ranch until another cold spell hits.
