Christmas 2012

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

Bud is a doll and Ben seems so happy to have a (bovine) companion. We'll be following the updates. (Hope Carl isn't taking this bad.) Mr. Cain's a sweetheart. Hope he enjoyed his new "cell phone."

The warmth and companionship of two is a good thing. I laughed with sheer joy, bless Mr. Cain he solved two problems with one gift.

It is hard to build a herd with two neutered steers (grin).

Merry Christmas (end of the day)!
Even my son's pet prairie dog has a pet prairie dog. Doubling seems to be a good thing.

Dick Cain gives a gift of a wonderful dinner of Rocky Mountain Oysters, and John is letting them go to waste.

Waste not, want not.

Sorry, but I've tried Rocky Mountain Oysters....they creep me out and I can't enjoy them. Banding is much less intrusive than cutting and by the time it all drops off there are no oysters left.

So glad that Ben has someone to keep him company.

Merry, Merry John. God bless you and all that you do in 2013.

So John,

I guess that means Jacksonville Texas is too freaky of a place for you to go visit? :-|
