Charles was keeping this little Santa Gertrudis bull for the neighbor ... the one who sold him Gertrude recently. The neighbor had in mind butchering this fine bull in a few months and asked Charles to keep him and feed him until the right time!
Well...C. decided he'd like to have him so made a deal to buy him... to start breeding some purebred cows. He thinks he'll grow into a good bull for breeding purposes. We'll see as time goes on...
Charles will eventually need to sell Big John- if this young bull works out!
I'm concerned that this young bull may be intimidated by the older bull and will not become aggressive in his behavior...;0 We'll just have to see how it works out...but he won't be ready to be 'useful' for a year or longer, anyway.
(At least, for now, he's saved from some one's BBQ grill!)
ok- Here is a picture of our new bull.
Charles named him 'Rush Baby' after his favorite talk-radio show host!
You may have noticed I've been working at getting my side bar back in order- with my blog links showing. I still have a few to go but will get it all worked out soon. I hope I don't miss anyone!
As for the picture slides... I guess I can't move them so they will soon be fading away into my past posts- lost to future readers who venture into Junie's Place! LOL- I wanted to have them on the side so you would all be enticed into watching them - over and over! haha!! Oh, well!!
Hope you've all had a good day.
