More about Blue Norther

This is the Hardland Ranch which was where my great grandfather homesteaded. The windmill in the background was the first water well in Ector County. It was a convenient distance to the railhead of Odessa and cattle herds could stop and water then drive the cattle to the railhead the next morning. This was a cold blue norther with our Hereford cows, descended from some of the first Herefords in America.

Total dimensions: 14.5 x 17.5 x 1″
