Skywatch Friday – Town and Country Skies

This is the view from my office building on day last week. Sunset looking over the Arkansas River as it winds its way down from Kansas through northeast Oklahoma.

A cattle herd in western Oklahoma, taken by my wife’s cousin’s wife Cheri Lou at her family ranch in Washita County, Oklahoma. Cheri Lou takes pics, I edit them and post them on Instagram. We make a great team. I love the donkey in the middle of the cows. The purpose of the donkeys, besides providing comic relief, is to protect the herd from coyotes. I give the cows names that Cheri Lou doesn’t appreciate. Names like Little Brisket, Rib Eye, McDonald, Wendy, Burger King, and Chuck (roast). It’s all in fun, don’t report me to PETA okay. Honestly, do people think these cows are going to die of old age.

Be that as it may, I am linking with Skywatch Friday

    Alan,

    I love a gorgeous evening sunset! Oh, I like the photo of the cattle grazing in the earthy tones of that open field with such a beautiful blue sky over head. Your wife’s cousin did a nice job! I hope you and your family have a joyful, blessed Thanksgiving, my friend!

    Here’s my SWF contribution!

    I love how you and your wife’s cousin make a photo team – so sweet! and I would have never thought that a donkey can protect the herd from coyotes.
