The PBR recently announced that multi-World Champion Justin McBride, who retired last season, will be playing the Grand Ole Opry on August 14th. Were I rich I can tell you where I would be that night. Anyways I am thrilled to see that a man with some actual talent will take the stage in that halloed hall.
On another note, we're calving cows still. Its insane! I am feeding so many calves right now I feel like am going nuts. Sedona was almost a week late. Had a simply stellar bull calf. Naturally. She isnt a cow to keep a bull calf off of as a herd sire. Still he is a handsome little guy. White with the most numerous speckles and splotches. 156 Consequences (had I realized how appropriate that would be a name for her I would have named her something less dangerous), had a heifer calf the same day as Sedona. The calf is sired by the same bull and is also white with speckles. Bigger ones though so she looks a little more proportionate.
Hard to say who will calve next. Baja, Pecan, Licorice and Detroit are all due before too much longer. As is 116 Char. Not the nicest cow in the world. I'm hoping we get a few more heifer calves. I know insane but I'd rather feed heifers than bulls. And since calf prices are so low it is often impractical to take a single calf to the sale, I end up feeding them for at least a week most of the time. On top of the cow list is my well rather bad tempered and not as good looking as her siblings Neon Moon. She's Mandy's second Blitz daughter. She's due the 14th. Cross your fingers for a heifer!
