Is the one on the left working on a mullet?

Ben and Bud look healthy, thanks to everyone. They look so serious and concerned. Poor boys. They know there is a problem. I'm sure they missed you, John, and are concerned. Animals know more than we think.

I think Margery has a point.

Be careful in trying to do too much. You could slip and put weight on that leg too soon. Just watching out for you lOL

handsome animals and curious about their history:

" Genetic analyses show the Longhorn originated from an Iberian hybrid of two ancient cattle lineages: "taurine" descending from the domestication of the wild aurochs in the Middle East, and "indicine", descending from the domestication of the aurochs in India, 85% and 15% respectively by proportion.[4] The Texas Longhorns are direct descendants of the first cattle in the New World. The ancestral cattle were first brought over by Christopher Columbus in 1493 to the Caribbean island of Hispaniola. Between 1493 and 1512, Spanish colonists brought additional cattle in subsequent expeditions.[5] The cattle consisted of three different breeds; Barrenda, Retinto and Grande Pieto.[6] Over the next two centuries the Spanish moved the cattle north, arriving in the area that would become Texas near the end of the 17th century. "

so there, ya'll have your history lesson for the day - and not a single revisionist passage (as far as I know)!

it's nice to see Ben and Bud again. And look at those horns!

John Wells said...

Ben and Bud also have some Watusi in their genetic code.

The Watusi lineage is definitely noticeably in Ben and his mother Bob.

If I lived out there I would have to plant some trees.

seems you are helping sustain a bit of the Ankole breed with Ben & Bud's help - nice job.
