Gotta keep a close eye out for the Mama Cow and her Evil Herd — they have already proved they can vanish through those open gates in a mere eye blink. All you see is cow tails straight in the air as they run down the caliche road toward Los Angeles (TX) and points West. The Bastards! Gotta watch ’em close!
