While driving Amber to work this afternoon, we saw these cowboys (except I don't think those are cows, I think they are steers) riding along the verge of the road between Penrose and Canon City. The bigger guy has about 6 other fat and gorgeous Long Horn Cattle in a pasture next door to where Amber lives; they are bigger than these and have much larger horns. It is such fun living here, we never know what we'll see next! One day I stopped to photograph 4 of the long horns and one of them stuck his head over the barbed wire fence to get his forehead scratched, just like my cats.
As soon as we saw these guys we stopped the car and Amber got permission to take a photo since she was on that side of the car. Last spring we saw a lot of long horn calves in a pasture further down the road. This is the first time we've seen anyone riding on the long horns.
