nourish

provide with the food or other substances necessary
for growth, health, and good condition

I’m sure Labradors believe…

 

…that other than sleep…

…they should have plenty of nourishment…

…between dawn and dusk.

It had to be near, or below, zero to freezing

to form a horizontal icicle.

While we were only inside for a few minutes,

the forty below room did not feel that cold.

While the signed maintained it was 40 below,

the temperature reading was only

a little over 20 degrees below.

I’m not sure how many times I have…

…viewed these images with a clear focus

Better late than never, I guess…

Cee-BW-Challenge-Horns

~~~~~

Horns from all over.

hereford cattle have horns.  However, PollHerefords do not have horns.

Similarly Poll Dorset sheep, in this case a ram,

do not have horns.

In both cattle and sheep horns have

been breed off the original livestock to

facilitate better animal husbandry practices.

Riverboat horn.

Trumpets…also called horn.

Do Giraffes have horns? 

Google states that a best guess is that

giraffe’s “horns” were originally

support structures for their antlers.

 

 

…for their antlers.   

Sockets that supported

the large racks which deer find so handy

during mating season in their tests

of strength and dominance.

Finally, a highly sort after horn, by some cultures.

Made of similar material which forms our fingernails,

it’s hard to see why rhino horn is valued.
