Of course, there are cows in the cow pasture.
But, check out other things one might find on hundreds of acres in west Texas.

I know it goes on a tractor. But, I like it just the way it is.

Yes. There are plenty of cactus plants out there. Aren't they pretty?

I am fairly certain they won't mind if I take a few things home with me each time I come to visit. What's your favorite cow pasture treasure?
Happy Monday!


  1. Great finds, Mindy. Be careful mother cows don't always like strangers around their calves. I found out this Summer one of my hens didn't want me near her chicks. What a lesson for me.........
    Have a nice week. sandi

  2. At our place we have a 19050's something Desoto in the field full of critters I try to avoid! Story goes the rancher killed the farm hand and his wife for their illicit affair. It is very close to my hunting area so I make sure I'm nice to the spirits!

    IMO, our best treausure is an old chimney from a 1920's house that is the only thing left standing. It is beautiful and holds not only my secrets but probably stories from those that came before Jeff and I!

    Not my treasures, but I enjoy seeing them = there is an old barn painted like the Texas flag on highway 377. On 183 there is a 1950's something truck painted like a US flag! I love treasures!

  3. True Texas Pics! I bet that ole truck has some stories to be told! Cathy aka GGJ

  4. Awesome stuff - and free for the picking too! :) The truck is the coolest thing - I'd love to put it in my garden!

    Nature AND junk...what a beautiful world!!

  5. Fun times! I'm glad I get to share my deer lease with you! The burgers were good too. That was a great idea using the applewood rub!
