Mother is on a slow road to recovery. She wants to get better and often asks what she needs to do. I took this picture yesterday, Wednesday, while she was up in her wheelchair. Keep her in your prayers. That is the very best thing you can do for her.

I spotted this covey today while riding around the ranch.
Notice how the hens coloring blend in with their surroundings. The rooster which is closest is much easier seen.
A pair of roosters.
There always seems to be one sentinel standing watch.

Now, just who is this? Hint............. it looks to me like that is a First Birthday Cake and a little girl digging in with her cousins down to help her celebrate.

Outsmarting old Longbeard

Jack Miller came all the way from Ohio to bag these two nice birds.
Paul Wallace from Albany Georgia with a turkey "Tom" he called in and shot at the Wolfweed Blind.
Paul with another bird he lured in and shot at the Graf ranch.
Debra Wallace, Paul's wife, with her two birds called in and bagged. She got them both with a single shot.
The Wallaces with the three birds they bagged the same morning at different blinds.

Syring Ranch's Bevo

This is Sam and Dianne Syring's Longhorn steer they named "Bevo". He is probably a better specimen than his namesake. I'm guessing his age at about six. I bet you can understand why the rest of their herd gives him plenty of space. He can just tilt his head and cattle move.

Lex and Kristi's One Year Annuversary... today, April 2.

Happy Anniversary! Marriage is dancing through life with a smile on your face. Kids, have a great day.

Ferdinand lost his antlers.........

This is a two and a half year old buck, "Ferdinand", on the Syring Ranch across the road. He has just shed his antlers a week or so ago. I drove up on him while out with Sam looking for "sheds". I guess it is sort of like Easter egg hunting for adults. I remember Sam about five years ago talking about looking for the sheds of four bucks he wanted to find. The only problem I remember thinking was that they could be anywhere on his approximately 700 acres. I laughed and thought he was joking......................... He found five of the eight sheds that first year and now has seven of the eight. So, now it has become and annual event. I keep asking him if he can say the word "horse". Oh, well, I guess a little exercise never hurt anyone. You just have to remember to watch out for those "buzz tails".

Dr. Leah Raye Mabry visits Poth Ranch

Dr. Leah Raye Mabry pictured with Sandra after riding around the ranch roads and visiting. It was a good chance for her to get away from the city. Later she met with other friends in the Poteet area where she went horse riding. She is an amazing lady and we feel lucky to have her as our family doctor.
