My Texas Longhorn Cattle mania continues with a painting using another photo from Sarah. This lady Texas Longhorn cow is a colorful red with white and soft contented eyes. I once stationed myself in my truck in a pasture of Texas Longhorn Cattle to watch them interact with one another and with their calves. It was a gorgeous day and one calf must of needed to get up and get moving and when she did not the mother and the other cows, one by one, in the herd made their way over to the calf and did their best to see if they could get the little one to get up and walk. I was taken with the community these cows had within their herd. As I ate my boxed lunch one of the older cows came over to investigate. She may of wanted a scratch on the back but not knowing these cows I kept my distance. It was a day to remember and I thank Sarah for sending her photos my way. Taking on a respectful love for Texas Longhorn Cattle made for, "A Painting Day".
