Newest Additions for 2021

There have been two new additions to the herd so far this year! These two are some real cuties! Spunky as all get out!

An Extra Hand on the Ranch!

This afternoon Bunny, one of the rescue goats, decided to try to climb aboard with me as I was feeding. The goats are excellent foragers on the Johnson grass that has started to invade the fields. But today he decided to try and hitch a ride with me and direct my efforts as I was throwing range cubes out for the cows. He is a very good manager! And a very lovable one at that!!!

A Beautiful Spring Afternoon!!!!

This has been a beautiful spring afternoon! The temperature has been so pleasant at around 63 degrees F and the sun is peeking out from the clouds. I pray that you are enjoying a wonderful day!

BIG Freeze in Texas

There is a saying that if you’re gonna do it …do it in a BIG Texas way!!!

This is what I would call a BIG Texas freeze!!!!

Frozen solid!!!!

A Very Welcome Sight!!

A new arrival for the new year!

The Night Before Christmas!

T’was the night before Christmas…as the poem goes…

And all through the farmhouse…

Not a creature was stirring….

Except for these three who seemed to be on the lookout!!!

We are wishing y’all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Sweet Rain…Brings Sweet Grass…

It’s Not a Mirage!!!!

There’s another new face on the ranch!

Out of the Dust!!!

Out of this Saharan dust storm walked momma and….her new calf! I’ll post more pictures of this newest baby when I am able to get a cleaner picture…a picture that isn’t blurred by all of this unbelievable dust!!

Is it Thawing???

It looks like a thaw is in the making! Temperature this morning was about 10 degrees according to my outdoor thermometer…but it’s on the rise…slowly and the ice is receding….slowly…

Stay warm my fellow ranchers and keep your eye on the temperature tonight because my friend Eric Berger at spacecityweather.com says it will be cold until this weekend when we may be able to put on our shorts and sun bathe!!
