Granted, the mesas on the other side of the plateau to the east of the Gulch are rich in stackable shale. Took me three painful hours just to gather stone for a 4X8 woodshed floor, and this guy does things like this for laughs…
Wanna see something kind of gross, that proves that anything can be a commodity?
I know where there’s two dead cows: The one I hauled off back in April, which is pretty much bones now, and this one. The other one is of no value because it didn’t have horns but I’ve got my eye on this one which has a nice symmetrical set. There’s always a demand for horned skulls, from people who like that sort of thing.
But this cow is still in the ‘rotting corpse’ phase of her transformation into decor, and I keep my involvement with rotting corpses to a necessary minimum. So I’m just keeping my eye on her and letting the bugs do their thing.
