Jimmy Bowen runs his cattle on his land that borders the Franklin Mountain State Park.  This boundary is not fenced, so we frequently get to check out his cattle.  He keeps his female White Faced Herefords on this land.  They’ve been giving birth to lots of little herefords over the past few years.  Sometimes they look pretty tasty, other times…they look pretty boney.  Over the past few months we’ve been spotting this huge Brahman cruising with the herd.  Totally funny, because it doesn’t even look like the same species.

I really like his ears.  They remind me of my dog.

What’s really funny is this guy has been working hard amongst his harum and now we are seeing the fruits of his labor.  There are now about a dozen little fellows running around.   They definitely don’t look like the little white face herefords, and they’ve got the funny looking ears.  I wonder if they’ll get the hump.

It was a great day for a ride.  A little cold, but knee warmers and a good wool undershirt were all that was necessary.
