Buttercream Leathers

Today was the day of the big round up! There were six cowboys and girls moseying along with the cows this morning. This seems to happen every few months. Not sure why, since the cows seem to be doing just what they always do – wandering back and forth.

I’ll post pictures of the cowboys and cows tomorrow, but this cowgirl presented the best subject for my camera. Love the way the yellow in her shirt matches the luxurious color in her riding pants!

Click on the picture to see the softness of the leather and the pretty conchos down the side of the pants leg.

      Oh, I know . . . I just like the “look and feel” of leather! I considered “Buttercream Chaps” for a title, but it just didn’t do it for me! I’m not sure they are actually chaps, anyway. Looks more like riding pants. Aren’t chaps worn OVER ones riding pants?

    Perhaps they are counting their herd? Making sure they are OK ? Nice picture .

      They do this every once in a while, but today it happened at a great time, and I snapped away like crazy. The roadrunner baby came back today to see if his home was still available, but the cactus wrens wouldn’t let him anywhere near it. They ran him off the deck forthwith.

    I can imagine there could be different reasons. They could be moving them to a different grazing range to let the grasses grow back. They could be rounding some up to sell. Or as Shirley said, maybe they’re just counting them (taking “stock” of their inventory!)
