Well I must say that having about 100 people come visit the Field Lab in one day was an interesting experience. The nice thing is that they were are genuinely interested in what I have going on here and I certainly appreciated that. I was happy to be a part of this fund raiser for our local community theatre group - Last Minute Low Budget Productions. I rather enjoyed showing off my project to 6 different groups today...and looking forward to no visitors at all for awhile. Funny thing is...after all the tours today, I only have photos of longhorns.
Now as nice as the day went with other humans - I must say that the absolute highlight was the return of 7 longhorns. Just after the first tour finished, I noticed some old friends approaching from the south. Of course I started mooing right away. I have really missed having longhorns run up to my house. This group was 5 cows and 2 calves - two of the cows I recognized. The brown one I named Wheezer last year due to her cough (she is much better now). The other familiar face I had yet to come up with a name for - so today I named her Marlys, after my BFF from the Big Bend Gazette. 46,69,35,0
