PhotosThis is one of my dad’s cattle, drinking at the well-water trough he built using an old tractor tire. The goldfish keep the water clean and the cattle don’t even seem to notice them. My mom with my the first of my herd born on the 78 acres I own outside of Mountain Grove. Her name is Princess (the cow, that is; my mom’s name is Carole). This is Queenie, my only red angus on my farm in southern Missouri. I found this at a junk yard outside of Houston, Missouri, thinking it might be my old bug. It isn’t, but if it had been, I’d have bought it and had it towed home. On Galway Bay in Ballyvaughn, County Clare, Ireland Our rental cottage in Ballyvaughan. Ralph is a corgi we adopted from a family here in St. Louis when he couldn’t stop trying to herd their horses. He’s a weird guy, but we love him a lot. This is a photo of my dad as a little boy in Ravenden Springs, Arkansas. A new calf, born in January 2018. Friends and family watching the eclipse in our backyard in August. We’ve rehabbed our grass since then, so it no longer looks like Arizona. Princess with her first calf. Beaver Creek, Dawson, Missouri, December 2018. This is one of my favorite places on the farm. A very pregnant Princess. One of the new calves and her mama on the farm. This is Queenie, our sole red Angus, and her newest calf and…onlookers.
