Northern New Mexico Traffic Jam
This kind of traffic jam is kind of fun, though, as long as you don't have to get somewhere at a certain time. Cows can't tell time, (at least they haven't indicated that to me) they just amble and mosey.
On the road to Angel Fire today a herd of cattle was being moved from point A to point B, so we had to slow down until these (mostly) moms and their babies had passed.
Some of these cows were big, so I had a chance to see what the Angus Boys would look like when they were finished. As an aside, I have contacted a grass fed beef co-op to help us market our beef.
This little guy seemed a little bewildered about the whole process even though his mama was just ahead. The cattleman moved his horse up a bit and the little fellow skedaddled closer to his main source of nutrition and comfort.
I suspect cattlemen love holding up traffic, their old fashioned transportation making a statement to the lazy drivers in their cars.
It looks like this baby is having one for the road. What mamas must endure.
