Once again, the Davis Mountains called us back. All those critters needed reminding that Mad-Dog takes no prisoners. Including the whole family of wild pigs on the ranch. 5 babies! And my mom was going "Oh, how cute." Get real, Mom, did you not notice the hog traps everywhere? I did, and they smelled very interesting! I offered my services as trap-guard, but no one listened...
There were only 2 young bulls in our pasture this time, but of course I immediately put them in their place. This one hereford had the nerve not to be scared - I think once he might have intended to get pushy, but my mom was there. I dunno about those horns.
And a few bunnies here and there to chase under the fence. And again my mom is doing the "cute" thing about them. Jeez.
In Terlingua, my mom, ever the bleeding heart, puts out a whole loaf of bread practically in strategic places for the local coyote. He showed up at dusk and from the looks of it, he's been doing well at those cabins. I was not allowed to confront the coyote. We probably would have bonded, both being canines etc. And having pointy ears. He might have let me have a piece of bread. I'll never know.
Most of the time was pretty relaxing, took a lot of naps in the sun. We always did animal rides in the mornng and at night. Saw a ton of deer which I expressed interest in and saw a fox or two, which I guess I'm supposed to gravitate to, my being a toy fox terrier and all.
As usual, good job Maddi!
