All it takes is for temperatures to be in the single digits, like this morning, for me to appreciate tank heaters, even if they are costly to operate. Tank heaters, placed in stock water tanks, keep ice off the water.

Cattle like to “itch” themselves just about anytime, but they really get carried away in the spring time of year. First of all, they have all of that winter hair.

I can’t remember his number. I don’t call him often enough. His birthday always escapes me ‘cause I don’t keep up with that stuff.
This week’s “From Pipi’s Pasture” honors a horse. This past November, for the second year in a row, he won the “All-Around” title at the World Paint Horse Show, an annual event held in Fort Worth, Texas.
It’s been nearly 50 years (gasp!) since I exhibited steers at the National Western. Since then I have kept in touch with it through our grandchildren, Kenny and Megan Prather. I know that there have been lots of changes since I was a junior exhibitor and know that more changes are being planned to expand the facility.
I was reminded of Harry Johnson today. I’d been drivin’ down a long stretch of country road. The snow blowin’ up in the rearview mirror, a thermos of coffee in the seat and the sun warmin’ the cab of the pickup.
As all of you know, the past few weeks, especially the past few days, have been busy as we have tried to get ready for Christmas Day. So on Christmas morning, after we had fed the cows here at Pipi’s Pasture and after the roast beef was simmering in the oven for a late-afternoon dinner, I had a few quiet minutes to sit at the dining room table and watch the fluffy snowflakes fall and ponder my columns for Saturday’s paper.
