LOL, he was so mad that she smooched him on the nose. He tried very hard to bluff her from his side of the fence--puffed himself up and snorted at her and showed her his fancy footwork. *g* She wasn't having any of it. I still can't believe I actually had the camera with me for once!

The horses love pears, too. We have one tree that really produces--lots of big, mealy pears. One of the geldings can hear a pear drop from clear across the pasture, and will come galloping to make sure he gets there first.

I'm still not sure which is scarier--the little long horn cow with her 5' rack or the thought of a nearly 3,000 lb bull! Yikes! ;-)

Saddlebum, them is some purdy critters! The one of that bay nuzzling the 'horn is neat!

Never been around longhorns, but when I lived in South Carolina, my neighbor had a mess of whiteface Herefords. Had a bull that was bloody huge, looked like a tree trunk with legs. He was a personable old cuss, not a mean bone in his body. Had a major weakness for pears, and I had a big ol' pear tree in the back yard. He'd come up to the back fence beggin' for pears. I was sharing the house with another couple, and the wife (a city girl) who didn't really trust him would hold one out at arm's length. Ol' Wooly Bully would reel out about a foot of tongue and pick that thing outta her had, gentle as ya please. Grossed her right out the first time he did that...
