Thankful!

There are so many things to be thankful for this year!

Newest calf for 2022

This little bull calf will be the last of Diesel’s offspring. He has both Butler and Wichita Reserve bloodlines. He is staring to get a little brindle streaking on his face.

Stardom 16

This 16 month old bull calf is full Butler breeding from Frank Anderson’s ranch. He will take over as herd sire. He has a lovely top line and a sweet disposition! I’m looking forward to seeing his offspring next fall.

Finally, we are finally getting some much needed rain! The stock tanks are dangerously low and the pastures need some more deep soaking rains. It’s these rains that also help the wildflowers which are quietly staring to grow. More about that in my next post.

With everything that we have all been through these past few years I’m taking the time to thank God for his blessings each and every day! Thank you and may God’s blessings be with you each and every day!

Lovely Rain!!!

This is my rain gauge!
This is what it looks like after a little bit of rainfall!

A Very Welcome Sight!!!!

Rain!!!! Glorious rain!!!

Maybe Rain???

Praying for rain!!!

Extra Layers of Sunscreen…

Here’s Diesel the bull hanging out-not just under a big ole pecan tree-but also wrapped in lots of little scrub tree layers just for extra sun protection. That’s what you just gotta do in this hot Texas sun!

Hotter Than Hell on the 4th of July!

But that doesn’t stop these beautiful bluebells from being spectacular!!!!

It’s just a Texas ‘thang!!!!!

God’s Love!

May God’s love be with you today and everyday…may you find peace and joy on this Easter Day.

Chores during the Freeze

There are still a lot of chores that must done during these freezes. Ice chunks must be removed from waterers or they will freeze back solid when night comes.

Ice chunks

It is important to clean out any moist or wet feedstuff and replace it with fresh feed. Refill all waterers, inspect all animals for any health concerns, and replace any minerals that might have dissolved or blown away during the storm.

It will be spring before we know it…but in the meantime keep your eye on the clouds!

Another Sign of Spring!

Nestled in the dry winter grasses are the very subtle signs of spring. Here are the first leaves of bluebonnets soon to come.

Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Year!! Yes, these Indian Paintbrush are blooming along the road! They are usually the first sign of Spring but my calendar says January 1, 2022! What will the groundhog have to say about this?

I hope that you have a wonderful 2022. May God bless you and give you peace and strength throughout the year!
