Cow Camp Tree...


We're in the 2nd hay field today.

I got my raking done early in the morning

when it was still cool...

It is 105 degrees this afternoon and I am 

looking for somewhere to shade up...

So I went where our cattle shade up...

The Cow Camp Tree

I pulled the pick up under the tree limbs,

opened the doors and a beautiful breeze

blew right through the cab...

The Cow Camp Tree is enormous...

This picture will give you an idea of just

how HUGE this tree really is !

This picture was taken last Spring

of our cow and calf pairs:

50 head of cattle can easily shade up

under this big, old, beautiful tree...

Animals are so smart,

so I followed their lead and rested

in the shade of the Cow Camp Tree...

Parked under the tree I could see out

over the hay fields and watch

the Cowboy bale hay...

We have 10 barns on the ranch...

this is the oldest barn.

It is been home to sheep, goats and cattle.

I will continue to sit in the shade

while the Cowboy finishes baling this field.

Yes, he has A/C in the tractor.
