Oakley Rodeo Cowboys

Whoever sang “Mommas’ Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys”?
We traditionally have the BAR-T Rodeo Stock Company stay in our Bunkhouse while they are here for the week of the Oakley Rodeo.
This year they broke all stereotypes for rough-stock Cowboys when they brought me this lovely bouquet of flowers along with a signed Thank-You note. Thank you Momma Evelyn!Oakley Rodeo Cowboys

New Turkey

I had just been on a turkey hunt in Upstate New York, in the Catskills,  a week earlier.  I must’ve had “turkey’ on my mind because I had all sorts of new ideas of how I was going to attract wild turkey’s to the farm this next winter.   (Not for hunting turkeys, just for the pleasure of seeing them.)  Then “Steve” was found walking down Highway 35, all lonesome and stuff.

It was love at first sight. ( And no one is claiming him so I think he’s found his forever home.) We just need to find him a lovely female companion.  He seems to have rejected us human sorts and we have to carry a big stick to keep him at bay.
