:lol: And there should be no reason that we don't have lots of pics. Hard to use lack of a subject as an excuse. :lol:

I was working some cattle a few weeks back and my son and his wife came by with our 2 yr old grandson. He had a stick standing on the outside of the ally hitting at the cows and saying ''go, go, go...'' well the cows had slung their tails and he had spots of cow manure all over the little feller face and all. I thought it was kind of cute but did not get a picture of it. We had to get him washed up, as I am sure Grandma would not have thought it as funny as I did.

I wish I still had the picture of the fresh gooey pie that big Char bull dropped on the hood of my wife's white Pontiac Fiero some years ago.....she was not happy about it, and that's the day I was emphatically told to fence the lane and yard completely off from the pastures...
