“He’s just a shade tree cowboy.” Such an expression doesn’t necessarily refer to a cowboy who’d rather lounge in the shade than work in the sun. Instead, it’s usually used to good-naturedly describe anyone who chooses ease over strenuous exertion and comfort over immoderate weather conditions.
Weather conditions this afternoon must be rather immoderate (90° in the shade at last check) because a bunch of cows are currently loafing under a nearby cottonwood. For your viewing pleasure, I snapped these photos of a few of my shade tree cows!

“For You have been a stronghold for the poor, a stronghold for the needy in his distress, a shelter from the storm, a shade from the heat….” –ISAIAH 25:4 (AMP)
