Please meet...
Incarnacion...."Carne" the Longhorn cow

003 and her dear companion...
Ignacio..."Nacho" the Longhorn bull

011
While on one of our many trips to Albuquerque....we found these darling Longhorns...
we talked about one day purchasing one....."just for fun"...
And one day it just happened...The Farmer said...."today is the day" and he
pulled off the highway toward the pasture where the Longhorns were so peacefully grazing.
We met the breeders, who actually have their first Longhorn ever....
buried in their front yard....with a really fancy headstone....
Really!
The breeders interviewed us....deemed us mentally sound and capable of owning one of their Longhorns...and the check was written.
A few weeks later they were delivered to a little farm in Deming where they were so lovingly cared for. The family that kept them gave them special vitamins to help their lovely
horns grow fast and long.
Because of "border issues" they are currently visiting Uncle Dave's ranch,
where, he reports...they are gowing fast and doing very well.
It will be fun to get them home......
hopefully that will be soon!

This has got to be the most hopeful time of the year....
the planning and preparing of the garden!
The seed catalogs have all arrived....
the pages are well worn....corners carefully folded down to mark the seeds that I NEED
this year. The compost and organic fertilizer has been applied to the soil and a few
items have been planted....peas and chard.
For me the mental preparation is the best!
Organizing the layout of the garden....how it will be different than last year...
what flowers to plant to add a little beauty to the vegetables,
It is alot of fun for me....
so today....will be dedicated to the garden....
