Short (Hot) Days
My goodness, I love short days. I feel like a whirlwind, getting so much done at home. Not too much going on where I was earlier, with the cows.
Blue decided it was a day to wear his ‘cloak of invisibility’ (aka fresh, stinky, slimy cow pucky).
Here he is proving to me that it works (almost).
Most of the bulls were hanging around in pairs. Maybe with twice the number they can spot the girls that are interested better, I don’t know.
You might not believe this but there are some crazy kind of duck that lives and nests on the open prairie and when you ride by it flies up right under your horse’s nose and scares the death out of everyone involved. For years my cowboy tried to convince me I was the crazy one and that there were no such things. They fly off so fast, I wasn’t able to get a picture of it but here is evidence of this annoying duck. This is where she flew up from.
And we found this evidence (but no beaver in sight).
Pic was having his problems, if being too popular is a problem.
He didn’t really care for the cow kissing thing.
Here he’s asking me what he’s supposed do.
This girl had her own problems; that’s a stick stuck in her horn. We decided it would probably come out on it’s own but if it doesn’t . . . well, she’s a big cow, not my favorite thing to rope. Glad we decided to wait. I wonder if the other girls are thinking it’s some new fashion statement.
All in all, it was a pretty happy, peaceful ride. Now back to my housework.
