Default Just Want To Share

I am almost 77 years old now, I grew up in Oregon and loved it, then circumstances took me to Alaska, that was a great time in my life too, but now I'm in Texas, have been here for over eleven years. The video that the link below will take you is surely one that all Texans should see, but if you are not from Texas and few of the members of the forum are, the video may still be of interest to you, I just want to share it with anybody that might like to watch. It's a little long but you can stop it at any time.

Enjoy if you care to have a look, I liked it.

Enjoyed watching that Jerry. I haven't visited Texas yet but I do look forward to it.

In the spirit of state pride here's a clip from my stomping grounds!

Jerry, are there still many of those long horn steers around?

I would assume that most would have been polled?

I have only seen a few of them James, they are not very plentiful where I am, as you know, I'm a "Johnney Come Lately", still can't understand what my wife is saying half of the time. Half of my vocabulary is "what did you say?"

I may have told this story before but it's worth telling again. Several years ago we hd traveled to Oregon to visit my family. At a family get together one of my niece's little girls came over and sat by Vesta, Vesta is my wife with the Texas slang, anyway the little girl was about three years old at the time, and she asked Vesta why she talked so funny, Vesta told her that it was because she was from Texas, the little girl asked her if she could put Texas in her mouth and talk that way too. We got a big laugh out of that of couse. My nephew said that he could just sit and listen to Vesta all day long. The folks down here do talk different, but I'm not complaining.

Yep. There are some just a mile or more from where I live (east side of Houston). A friend has some on his mother in laws ranch near Sealy, Tx.

I tried to upload some pics but the forum won't let me. New owners, huh?

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

Talking

I would expect to see a few here and there, but I meant in commercial quantities.

Most would be Santa Gertrudis/Hereford poll cross?


Added pic as test...

The video has to be a fantasy for us west Texans. I did not see the first prickly pear, or rattle snake !!

James there are many herds of long horns here, but they are just here for their intrinsic and historical value. A well bred and maintained long horn may bring as much as 10 times the market value of beef cattle. Many of these ranchers still insist that cowboys on horseback herd their cattle for the same reason, and they pay them well.

Here you still see coyotes hanging on the barb wire fence, where ranch hands have killed them. They say it keeps the other coyotes away.

Yes it's a "WHOLE OTHER COUNTRY".
