Thanksgiving 2012

I am thankful for the chance to have crossed paths with an old longhorn.  Dick Cain recently found this picture of her.  Benita with her first calf when she was only 2 1/2 yrs old - Fall of 1990 in Brenham, TX.  That year I was living in Manhattan and was just starting a set and prop building business in a loft in Brooklyn.  64,77,48, .16",B,0

John, you have a lot to be thankful for. We do as well. Having our place out there and knowing you are just a couple. Happy Thanksgiving.

Look at that - her calf looks a lot like Ben! Happy Thanksgiving to you JW. I'm glad too that you both crossed paths!

What an interesting photo to come across. That is definitely Benita, although her horns have not yet reached their spectacular beauty of her later years. Interesting that she was in Brenham, Texas. That is a long way from Terlingua. Dick Cain must have bought her, and brought her out to his Brewster County ranch.

Benita lived 24 years? Wow. How on earth did she get from Brenham to Terlingua?
