The Surprise Magnetic Brother

Considering the personalities of the boys of The Herd, who do you think is the magnetic brother that everyone wants to hang out with?

With wind gusts over 50 mph (80 km/h)—and much higher on the ridge above us, Hu-Dad opted to take photographs from the window, but we enjoyed the sunny and cold day. What might surprise our readers is who the popular kid is. Frankie may be the big bro that everyone respects, but the bad boy Typhoon seemed to attract all the attention. The younger set spent the day near him and all of his grumbliness.

Though Roscoe's form might be a slight embarrassment.

Apparently, that gruff exterior and delinquent streak makes him one magnetic brother to the kids of The Herd.

Roscoe is now more acceptable to the prince.

    It seems the Herd is ever changing but Roscoe and Typhoon seem to be a team lately! Roscoe doesn’t seem to mind Typhoon Phooey’s grumpiness and it looks like a “windy: time was had by all!
