Branding this spring was a family affair for the Sniders of Oklahoma, a family that includes cowboy poet, reciter, and songwriter Jay Snider's family and his son Rusty's family, which includes ShyAnn and Rowdy.

This year each of the kids—representing the fifth generation of Snider cowboysroped their first calves:

Week of June 10, 2013

New Mexico cowboy, poet, singer and songwriter Mike Moutoux posted some javelina photos on his Facebook page, and we asked if he'd be willing to share some views for Picture the West.

He obliged, and accompanied them with some commentary:


We call the javelinas "pigs" for short and really enjoy their visits to our yard. We don't have landscaping or a dog that they can hurt so we get along pretty well. They are not vicious to us and these glimpses we get give us a chance to see how they interact with others in the herd and see the little ones as young as a day old as they grow up.
 


In the U.S., they are only found in Texas, New Mexico and Arizona, so they are not common in the West. In fact they seem to have expanded their range in recent times. Folks around Silver City started seeing them for the first time in the 1970s. The old petroglyphs in New Mexico do not contain any drawings of javelinas either but show about every other creature around here like deer, pronghorn, bighorn sheep and elk.
 


Currently we have a herd of 10, 6 adults and 4 young ones. When they are little the young ones can share food with any adult; as they get older the sharing is discouraged sometimes quite vigorously. They seem just as curious about us and watch us come and go around the yard. I think they are smarter than the mule deer which we often see as well.
 


Mothers are very protective of the little ones and are usually the last to enter the yard. Young ones stick pretty close to mom circling under, around and through her legs as they make their way. Moms seems to know right where the little ones are and often need to shift their own legs to avoid stepping on their own young. We sure enjoy watching and learning about these unique creatures, and can't help getting the camera out when we have time.
 

Mike has shared other photos for Picture the West:
