Meetin' the New Neighbors

While at the ranch in New Mexico I hoped to meet some of my new neighbors. Most of the neighbors are a good 40 acres away, some of us have 10,000 acres separating us. (Can you say "sweeeeeet"?)

Sunday evening hubby and I were walking our little behinds off trying to mark where the pasture (relative term) fences would go. It was quiet except for a light breeze and the usual bird chirping.

Then I heard it. At first it was very faint but I knew what it was as it got louder and louder. It was a mother, a concerned mother, calling her kids in for dinner. They hadn't listened to her first call. Now she was getting kinda crabby, I could tell.

I walked to the end of my driveway, eager to meet the new neighbors. I hoped it might save the young ones a spanking if I showed up with a big smile on my face.

Junior almost ran into me in his haste to get to mama's side!



The smile at the end of the driveway helped and I met who'd been bellowing.



She introduced the kids, we chatted a bit and exchanged phone numbers. Then she excused herself. She said they were meeting up with others and were headed out to grab a bite.



I followed the little family further down the ranch road hoping to meet more of the girls...



I was so busy introducing myself I didn't hear the dinner bell.



Better get a move on little doogie...

If we had more neighbors like that, maybe hubby would get more projects done around here. Seems everytime I look out the window, there he is , chatting away with one of his cronies!
My nearest neighbor is 1/4 mile away.....I couldn't imagine having THOUSANDS of acres. That would be sweet!

I tried to post yesterday and Blogger threw me off -- so let's try today!

Having cattle for neighbors is far easier than is having people neighbors. You can chase the critters out of your yard without fear of being shot by one of them, they never ask to borrow a cup of sugar, and they are fun to photograph. Very nice photos this post, by the way.
