Buffalo, a dynasty in their own right, are interesting creatures.  I have had a run-in with a female cow on several occasions. This Ranch Lady is sure glad to be alive to tell about it.

This oil well is in our heifer pasture.  As a child I was transfixed with watching the pump head go up and down, up and down.  I always imagined it to be a bucking bronco.

When a rancher has a mama cow that takes care of her calf so that he can do the business of ranching, that cow is what we call a keeper.

Mama cows are so caring of their babies. This is a typical pasture scene with a cow that has a good disposition.  Stress free cows tend to have healthier calves with bigger weaning weights. I was raised on a Hereford ranch. I still love the sight of baby Hereford calves with their pink little noses and bright white faces freshly cleaned by mama's tongue. I am such a Ranch Lady, I just can't help myself!

Some days I am inspired by the artistry of great painters.  Holding my brush as a conductor preparing his orchestra to readiness,  I take a deep breath and pause before launching myself into my vision. My brushstrokes reflect my confidence.

Burro adoption is growing in the Southwest. Many of the Mexican burros that cross the border into the United States find good homes. They are really adorable animals and so cute.
