Why cowboys drive pick-up trucks...

I asked cowboy a couple of times to bring me some hay for the baby calf we're bottle feeding... but he kept forgetting.

At first, it was going pretty well...
But after I drove about 3 feet, it blew back and covered the entire windshield. (Photo taken from the driver's seat.)

I had to drive home with my head hanging out the window and hay blowing in my face. I wish I could tell you that this is the first time I have done this... but that would be a lie.

And this, my friends, is why cowboys drive pick-up trucks.

He just looked at me in HORROR! He pictured a farmer shooting at me with a gun! I told him he would have to catch me first! LOL

  5. Funny! Aren't you glad you didn't have to worry about car traffic...just the deer and the antelope, and a cow or two.

  6. Funny! Last fall, after trying to bring home several bales of hay in my Jaguar, I determined that I needed an SUV instead!
