A Good Fence With Guards

Actually these buzzards are waiting for us to leave so they can continue their brunch. When we spot these guys we start counting cows. John was quite upset to find a large calf dead. Wasn't able to figure out what happened to it. When you have cattle  it happens at times.

So sad about the young calf. I remember what a loss it was in the farming days to lose an animal for whatever reason, often unknown. Those buzzards are such a common site in Texas with all the wild life.

Yes, life and death on a farm or ranch is a common occurrence. Today, with the prices livestock can bring, it's a big economic loss.

yes, that's part of it, for sure. love the shot, though.

A bad lost, but as you said it goes along with farming or ranching.

Gwen said...

Sad about the calf. I'd be scared of those big old buzzards.

Ah, it must be hard to lose a calf, in many ways.

Well I think it's neat to see vultures because I they aren't a familiar bird in our area. However I think it's sad that you lost a calf.

Sad about the dead cow, but these buzzards do make great fence "ornaments."
