Comanche, Longhorns, and other cool stuff.
Yesterday we went to the Livestock Auction in Comache and saw a lot of cows and a couple goats, too. After that we walked around the Comanche square and went into some antique stores. There was a cool, old log cabin named Old Cora and we got to look inside it, too. The wind was pretty chilly, so we got into the car and drove back to Brownwood. Then we a yummy Lady Burger at Studebakers.
When we got back to the Ranch, Robert and Tracy went to milk the Longhorns. After we were done, we decided to put Pedro (our little bull calf) back in with his momma, Holga, by ourselves since he is small and we can control him on a lead. As Tracy was tying him up to a tree branch, Holga got excited and Robert thought she was too close so he tried to scare her away. Holga did not move so Robert jumped at her. She snorted and ran at him, knocking him down. Rosa, another mother cow, came and started rolling him around and pushing her head into his back. By that time Tracy had let go of Pedro and came running to scare the cows away, who had crowded around Rosa and Robert. Tracy got Robert off the ground and dusted him off. He had a purple lump forming above his left eye, but he was otherwise unhurt. Thank God!! He was pretty shaken and wide eyed but yelled "I'm okay!" as soon as he was off the ground. He was a trooper and did not cry but laughed about it later. Mr. Sifford and Daddy came running and Dad whacked Holga in the head with a shovel.
Today we had a singing and lunch today with the Siffords. We had a yummy turkey, rolls, blackeyed peas, green bean casserole, and brownies.
Well so long for now!!
