Longhorns and a Donkey...
...was not what I was expecting to see at all this morning.
I took the kids over to a park close by which has a nice walking trail connected to it. The trail runs along Brushy Creek. It also runs right next to a ranch. As we're walking along, I see what I thought was a cow up ahead. Turns out, the longhorn herd of the ranch was out grazing right by the trail this morning.
We saw at least 6 longhorns, 2 calves, and a donkey. The kids were stoked!
Only in Texas can you go for a leisurely walk and find longhorns and a donkey grazing amongst the leaves and brush.
The only thing separating us was a barbwire fence, but I knew longhorns tend to be gentle by nature unless they're spooked. I made sure the kids knew to walk slowly, use a calm, low voice, and they could get fairly close. Luckily, it worked! Jackson even fed the donkey some grass (which I'm pretty sure made his day!).
And I had my camera on me to capture this cool moment.
