He's a load. He should add some nice muscle to his calves.

He'll meet the first two his girls after ~2 weeks. Two heifers sired by the elder Limousine bull. One 7/8Limo, another LimoxCharx. Hopefully we'll have this bull's first calves in December.

I like him! I would like him better without horns but to each his own.

The farmer we have bought this bull from had in total two bulls for sale. Both looked almost identical. Just one was taller and horned and another was polled, but abit smaller in height. We've chosen the taller one, because we want to increase the size of our cows.

Nice looking bull. Is he easy to handle?I think nothing is cooler than to have such a large animal and be able to lead him around.

He isn't halter trained. I'm pretty sure that he has never seen a rope too. Here are no shows where cattle would be judged and led with halter, so very rarely somebody trains their cattle with halter.
But the bull isn't afraid of people and comes to you. You can hive him a scratch. Of course he doesn't trust us very much, because it's a new place and new people, but he's quiet. He's alone in a steel pen, but there are heifers pasture very near him and he can see them and cows a little bit further.
Now give him some meal, so he should get used to us in couple weeks.

Finally he met his first girls- two 23months old heifers.

He got used to us and now is a very calm boy, loves getting his back massage.

Bull & the heifers look good.

Is that your house in the background of the last picture? That looks like a beautiful yard & house!

The boy and his girls went on grass two weeks ago. He finally has an almost fully formed cows herd with him: 8 cows and two heifers. Four heifers will come after a month or two. He got much calmer when we brought him more girls.
