Whatever comes to mind about the people, the places, current (or not so current) events, philosophy, culture, or whatever, that might in some remote way be related to the Texas Panhandle or other places that I want to talk about!

Spring is when most of the big ranches gather their cattle off of the range and work them. It's called "Spring Works" for all you non-agricultural types. The pictures below were taken several years back by a friend of mine who was helping out on one of the big outfits. I hope you enjoy!
Sorting the cattle (separating cows from calves).
Heeling (catching a calf by the back legs).
Easing him out (has one caught and separating him from the rest).
Draggin' (pulling the calf that was caught to where it can be "worked").
Flanking the calf (positioning him for doctoring).
