Grandma Barb’s This and That

Rural Critters

I always like to take the back roads because you never know what you might find.  My cousin and I were doing just that when we went down a dead end road.  Here is what we found.  Looks like they belong in Texas, not Minnesota.

Have a great day and I'll see you next time!

I so miss seeing the Texas longhorns!!! We have a few hiding out here in Florida..I wonder how they get so lost? Loved your photos!!

Hello: Beautiful pictures! I grew u on a farm, and we used to have a Longhorn bull named Sweetums, and he was a very sweet bull! Now my brother has a Watusi steer, which also has huge horns! Take care, and have a great weekend!

I saw one of these today in northern VA - they are so interesting, but different for our area!

Oh my, this is very funny--an outbreak of black spotted creatures. Lately Chet the puppy has gone all black spotted under his coat--a real mystery. We need to talk with your guys! :-)

Love the edit you did on the 2nd picture, Barb! I like to take pictures of non-black cattle; I need a little variety once in a while.

Amy Burzese said...

Great photos. Love the textures and effects you used.

This is a great find. I always like to take the back roads. My friends don't understand it and actually told me that they NEVER do that, afraid of getting lost. Some of the best finds I have ever had have been by being a little adventurous and yes getting a bit lost, so it's nice to find another back-road adventurer.

Nice shots!

EG CameraGirl said...

Long horns and spots! Very different from what I am used to seeing. :)
