Many thanks to Greg Schulz, of Schulz Farm for selling two pair of cattle for me! Probably a couple of my best, but he sold them well and I am very grateful.
Now I can finish building that fence around the front of my property. Yep. It’s getting deep out front – grass-wise. Surprised? We DO have a little grass in West Texas. And when it’s not grazed or mowed down, it presents a significant fire threat. If you’ve never seen a grass fire on a hot windy day, count your blessings.
On another note: my heart and prayers go out to the families affected by the recent earthquake and resulting tsunami wave. I can’t imagine what all that must be like to deal with, and I hope I never know. Absolutely horrific, terrible, excruciating…are there words to describe the emotions? Probably not.
I don’t have any desire to lose my home in water OR fire, so we’re going to start grazing down the front half of the property. Hence the fence. Which is almost done. Fortunately.
