Fox Creek Gate Tilden, Texas - 72 degrees mostly cloudy this morning clearing slowly to mostly sunny 95 degrees.
Most of our traffic was in the cool morning then quit for the mid day and a tanker coming to load oil in late in the afternoon. Near dusk the cattle came around checking for food and water. In the evening tankers came to haul out water pumped up with the oil.
Just before dusk the cattle came by for feed and a drink of water. These pictures show them munching the grass (weeds) and looking for puddled water in this white tank, there is a depression in the center collecting rain water. We put water in the stainless steel bowls for them to drink, maybe the wrong thing to do. This white tank was here when Buster arrived here at the gate in March.
