Saturday Nite...part 2

After receiving a late night call that some of my calves could be out, I grabbed my spotlight and headed to the pasture to count cows.
They were all accounted for and were bedded down for the night ......but just to make sure they weren't mine, I decided to go back to the pasture at daylight to check for evidence....(calf prints where they shouldn't be).....

Shoot.....the whole road was covered with cattle tracks, horse tracks, dog name it.

Someone had moved their herd to winter pasture right at daybreak. lol

So much for my detective work. :)

The trail went on for 10 miles. lol

I did find out that the runaway calves belonged to a rancher about 7 miles north of me. :)

I hate when my veal....errr..."calves" run away. I hope someone steered them the right way home. It's udderly hard to believe they'd make a break for it. I can't believe what I've herd.

Ok, I'm done:)

I'm glad to hear they were'nt your critters that were out Jeanie. Cows are a pain in the butt sometimes. But they sure do taste good.

cowgirl said...

Thanks Mark! I was pretty relieved that they weren't mine too. lol
You're right, they sure can be a pain at times.
Your place is lookin' good Mark. I like your new shack. :)

hey Jeanie..glad you like that song. ive seen those guys a bunch of times.i dont think they have ever played in OK city though. i would say check them out but that might not be possible for you. great show and those guys are real cool down to earth..ive chilled with them before shows and had some great conversations. unfortunately for me they are getting big..i enjoy the smaller venue shows around here. anyway, heres another : "Sometimes i lay under the moon..i thank God im breathing..then i pray.. dont take me soon..because i am here for a reason. sometimes in my tears i drown..but i never let it get me when negativity surrounds..i know someday it will all turn around". ~Matisyahu "One Day"..check that 1 too ! i have to get back to work a slacker! lol This could be cool..Ill send some good music your way! Good to hear your not just into country music only!! Have a great week girl! enjoy

I like Jack Johnson too. :)

Can you picture me riding my horse through the sagebrush and yucca,

There are a lot of nice acoustic guitars I'd love to have, but I am playing a Yamaha. It does OK. :)

Nothing fancy for recording either.
