bonding day

Little Ben hung out with some other longhorns today.  Not too interested in them.  He probably wondered why they have horns and no beard.  Drank a new personal best of 6.5 pints of milk replacer today.  94,105,67,0,B,0  BTW - checked all my catchement tank levels after that rainstorm:  I have 9900 gallons on tap now.

What a cutie, pretty soon he will be following you around like a puppy. What a great life you have with your critter friends.

Reminds me of the story when a family in Oklahoma took in a baby buffalo. It was cute to have him come in the house, but when he was a full grown 2000# plus he still wanted to come inside. You can guess what there house looked like. Anyway, any estimates on how long the 9900 gallons will last now that you are growing a jungle there?

I guess you're kind of partial to that hat. I have a couple not far behind it (lucky fishin hats),smell
fishier than the fish.That one looks like it has outlived usefulness as a sun shade or a rain gutter..so it got me thinking.If you can part with it I have a new business venture for you.Get hold of Carl, dip his feet in ink and stamp that hat.You now have the Carl Barred Rockin the TFL distressd signature model limited(collectors edition of course).You could probably get 300.00 or so.As you know from living in the big city it's all in the branding and marketing ........so don't forget the serial number and the certificate of authenticity

Early Childhood Development, bovine edition. It's good to see the little guy bonding with you, and doing well.

That seems like a lot of water on hand. How does it stand in the larger scheme of things?
