Oh no not a day trip for us, we don't have time. The young bull is going to the vet early tomorrow. No he isn't sick or hurt. He is going to have his manhood tested to see if he is worthy of staying on with the cow family. If he is good to go this will tell if he will take the place of the big old bull. Then who knows? John may decide to keep them both if they don't fight too much. It's hard to believe how cool it is here in the mornings and how hot it gets in the afternoon but we're loving the cool mornings and appreciate them because we know they won't last. Yesterday we saw the first coyote we've seen in a while. He/she was in the area we have been seeing the Jackrabbits. Hope it wasn't looking for supper. John said as close to the house as he was my little cottontails may have a hard time surviving. I think I heard the coyotes are endangered now. I guess everything has to eat but I sure hate for the Jackrabbits and Cottontails to be thinned out just when they are making a come back. John got a little too close to a cactus plant and guess who got to pick all those little thorns out of his arm? If it would have been the big ugly sharp ones I could see them. They are the little fine light soft ones that blend into the color of the skin. I have to have good light, my glasses, and a magnifying glass. Just one of the joys of ranching.
