Something to smile about

My 11 year old Arizona barrel cactus that Ken and the boys got for me has never bloomed until now. Marti and Hunter helped me re-pot her about a month ago and look at her blooming eyes.
This makes me real HAPPY....:)

We have new elk bulls for Tarbone Ranch.

Our Elk have arrived from Iowa.
We got 4 new Bulls. They had to have their antlers cut off to be transported.

They will have lots of room to roam and new girlfriends to get acquainted with.
