This Guy

This guy…


…whom I thought was just the quiet, new kid on the block, is really, well, quite the bully. Little Red has always been calm, easy going. Yesterday, he either decided he did not want me checking his waterer or he thought I’d make a good match for a quick round of headbutting play. Either way, he came running at me. I jetted for the truck faster than fast, looking back in time to see him stopped and looking down to make sure my seat was dry. All good.

After watching a calm Little Red for a minute or two, I stepped out and walked back to the waterer. No problem. He even trudged up to drink. I concluded our youngest bull was bored because one, he’s not “working”, and two, he’s stuck in the bullpen with this guy…


Liberty Bell, or LB, is no spring chicken, but he gets the job done. During summer, you’ll most often find him here…


Typically, the locker room is a little more full, so to speak. This spring was rough on the boys. One bull was culled due to, well, we’ll just say not all of his team showed up to play at game time. Another bull succumbed to pneumonia. We’ll have more lot mates for Little Red soon. Instead of shopping for Kate Spade purses or Frye boots this fall, I’ll be shopping for bovine boys. And with current cattle market prices, I may not be shopping for purses or boots for the next two years.

Meanwhile, homeboy will keep himself entertained with “fencing” here…


…and here. He needs a new hobby. You know, like chasing humans.


Alive and well,

    Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was super
    long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote annd say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole
    thing. Do you have any points for first-time blog writers?

    I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    Many thanks! As for points, I would suggest sticking with it. That seems to be where I get myself in trouble. I’m certainly no pro, but I always love blogs with good pictures.

  3. Good job mom! You didn’t tell me little red charged at you!
