This big ole longhorn steer belongs to a neighbor across the highway. I don't know if he's competed in any shows, but I suspect he has won his share of ribbons. His horns appear to be award winners.
I e-mailed my friend, Debra, and asked her if she knew he name of her neighbor's big ole black and white steer. This is how she responded:
It has been raining for 2 days in my part of Texas and I have been in and out of it all afternoon without complaint. Despite the fact that it's 40 degrees, I have smiled during every wet minute! The bluebonnets always bloom around my birthday - end of March - but it was beginning to look a little "iffy" as to whether or not we would get a show this year. The seeds germinate late summer, and we did have a nice rain in August that got them up. But all winter the little bluebonnet plantlets have remained small and pathetic, waiting for moisture that failed to come. BUT we have nearly 3 inches in the rain gauge now, and I had to search for my mud boots before I could go feed the horses. (Mike graciously loaned me his.)
I may paint this again with bluebonnets.
For as the soil makes the sprout come up and a garden causes seeds to grow, so the Sovereign LORD will make righteousness and praise spring up before all nations.
