I mentioned our drought in my last post. It is very disheartening to see my beautiful Texas look like this. The pastures, if not irrigated are all like this.
This is a different pasture. Click on a picture to get a really good look.
We did get about 2" of rain a couple of days ago. We need a lot more, but it kept me from having to water for a day.
One thing is good, the cows are still in pretty good shape. I have seen them much worse, and not such a bad drought then, too. I think many ranchers have sold off lots of cattle. Hay is being trucked in from the DFW area, as they have had rain, and the hay is very good.
I forgot to mention that these pastures are in a river bottom! Usually the bottoms keep a little green!
We are praying for rain.
