field lab field trip
Out and about today. Task at hand? - Get a picture of Bud's parents. Found them about 7.5 miles (as the crow flies) west of TFL...a 45 minute drive. Just so you know - I wasn't just blindly driving around looking for them. Dick Cane took me to where they might be and pointed them out when we got to the spot. They just happened to be standing close to each other when we found them. Bud's dad is the sire of most of Dick's herd. Bud's mom had him when she was only 2 yrs. old...a bit too young for either of them. That's why Bud is a bit of a runt. I'm doing my best to fatten him up. I forgot to ask if Dick named the bull, so I call him Brutus del Agua Fria.
