Got a Christmas present for Ben today thanks to Dick Cain. Another soon to be steer named Bud (He just got banded today). Now Ben has a buddy. I see a future ox team. Bud's mother is only a two year old cow so he is a bit of a runt and was stunting his mother's growth. He is 5 months old. Ben is spending his first night out in the new fenced area now that he has a companion (other than Carl). It's gonna be a cold night and Bud is gonna be missing his mamma so I hope they huddle up together. 48,67,47,0,W,0
