This forked horn buck was on a mission headed towards some water and greener pastures to the south of our property. His hair was silver in color…. was it from the ash?
So onward to find out what else the fire burned – property, vegetation and fencing. It is not looking too promising for our operation or the land. The grasses will pop back in the Spring when the rains come but that is a long wait for grazing animals. Domestic or wild. Now they will compete for forage and feed that we will have to provide.
What an exhausting day… and we haven’t even assessed it all. More to travel tomorrow. And to figure out where we are going to put the bulls since we have a lot of downed fence and burned forage.
Until next time…

That simply looks awful. I do not really have the words.
Neither do I… it has been very exhausting but we’ve been blessed in that we didn’t loose any livestock, structures or lives.
