Natural Forces

I saw Lyle Lovett perform this song on Imus in the Morning.  It’s amazing what you can see on a show hosted by a vegetarian that wears a cowboy hat and promotes grazing and rodeo but not eating beef.

This song seems as if it is about the life of a traveling clinician and even more so to show the story, in a artistic way, of Ray Hunt’s life as a horseman.  It is my new favorite song.

The Greatest Cowboy

This man is exactly who I was talking about this week.  You can feel the confidence and knowledge this man had, and the pride and pleasure he had for his life. He influenced and helped many.  I don’t think he was ever “a day late and a dollar short.”  I hope you enjoy the video and the music this week.  I was really inspired by it.

Cow Pasture Pool

I think we should convert all golf courses back to grazing land.  Great grass, good water holes, even sand traps that would be like a buffalo wallow.  They would already have mineral boxes in place, back scratchers already set, lots of shade.  I think it would be the perfect way to make beef more sustainable and take quite a bit of stress out of some people’s lives.  All joking aside, I saw a golf course that went bankrupt once and there were cattle grazing on it. It was on the Big island of Hawaii.
