This is what the Trail Boss and the Mule Skinner faced late this evening. There wasn't enough spit, muscle, or determination that would allow them to win this battle. For 48 hours they held the line and allowed the herd to stay safely in their home...but they could do no more.
Mounted on Steele the Trail Boss drove the herd to safety and waiting trailers. They are now resting at the Fair/Rodeo grounds.
Thanks to all who are helping evacuate livestock and providing safe haven for humans and critters. Blessings to you all.
I have a herd of big hoofed appys still ready to do a bit of a 'stomp dance' on the fire if needed.
Prayers for safety and a quick end to this fire.
