Happy Memorial Day to you all. I hope you have a nice time with family today, and hopefully barbecue up some good good. We can not barbecue, because of the drought there is a Burn Ban that extends to even lighting a propane grill. The wildfires have been terrible this spring.
Drought Week continues here with this picture of starving horses. The picture was taken in 1916 in Kentucky. As I mentioned yesterday, all the ranchers I know have sold off there cattle, sheep, and goats. There is not grass because of lack of rain, and we are pretty much out of hay. Some have not sold there horses, though. In some cases horses are hard to sell, and in other cases, horses are more like family pets. In either case, I have seen more and more horses like the ones in the picture above recently. In yesterday's comments, bibdi reported similar things in the small towns around San Antonio. It is really sad.
