Water doggy.

Last Saturday morning when we were out pulling the bulls out of the spring cows, the bulls kept wading to the center of the many small ponds on the ranch to cool off.

Good thing we had Austin along with us....

You can't really tell by my not so professional pictures, but Powers would swim out to the bulls, nip them in the rear, and then swim back to us as the bulls would start to move out the pond.

Very handy.


Like us, the dogs are settling in here....

And I think Austin likes it even more here because there's at least one water tank in every field that's just the right height for her to jump in and cool off in.

holy experience
