This post is from exactly one year ago. Mercifully, the pasture is in much better shape this year.
When I focus on Hank and how handsome he looks in the New Mexico twilight,
I can almost take my mind off how dry the pasture is...
...and how it hasn't rained or snowed since the end of February.
It's got to rain eventually, doesn't it?
I will choose to look at the bright side.
Dust is easier to remove than mud.
There's no danger of the tires getting sucked off the truck the next time I go to town.
I don't have to worry about Hank slipping and falling on the dust.
And these pictures wouldn't have been nearly as nice had it been raining.
