Lazybones

Postby Nesikep » Mon May 29, 2017 3:15 pm

Here's a walk through one half of my herd.. all being lazy butts.. Caddy has all her (4) daughters nearby, and all but 2 of the calves are granddaughters/sons

Awesome! Nesikep, where do they forage? I don't see much there. I remember the alpine pastures of Montana and Wyoming. Is there better pasture up there?

they both have some front pasture cows.. it depends mostly on which ones I want heifers from, and how I can minimize funky colored calves

There was a famous kennel of Mastiffs with the kennel name Lazybones. I thought we were going to talk about my favorite breed of dog for a minute...

... instead I get to see your critters!

So, how short is Hera? How tall are you?

Apparently Google thinks there are dogs in my pictures!
Image

I'm 6'.. Hera isn't very tall.. certainly not leggy.. somewhere around waist height? estimating in the low 300 lb range now?
Here's a pic of her from today.. Today it struck me how deep set her eyes are.
Image

Chroma's calf at 16 days old.. she was chewing cud at 9 days old.. I think that's some kind of record
Image

Caddy's calf.. for one of the later calves she certainly isn't behind in growth.. not quite the thick build of Hera, but might look good anyhow
Image

New pasture! they'll be temporarily happy!
Image

What a show stopper.. just take my word for it, he's super deep, has perfect feet, etc etc etc :roll:
What BCS you figure he's in? 5-6?

Great pics and bull really looks good.
Talk about amazing scenery - we get some pretty funky scenery when we click on a picture to look at it in a bigger version.
