The root cause of the majority of the problems in the world today is that common sense is no longer a prerequisite to staying alive.

Tried to pull this one up again, but I think it was a Dutch Belted not a belted Galloway. I looked at it once and now it is gone. Dutch Belted is a dairy breed and I thought it didn't look so bad but was in a hurry and then it was gone.

It wasn't so bad looking for a dairy bull.

Not craigslist, but worthy of posting here I think!

he doesn't just look phenotypically small, but kinda underfed, no? What would you place his body condition score at?

Here's one that I see a couple things I don't like and would like to see what others think: https://utica.craigslist.org/grd/6123421500.html

Way too light in color for me and those ears are too small. Looks like a Charolais cross.

At least these are just on craigslist. I can't tell you how many times I go out to people's properties to sell hay or help them do some thing and they have cattle like that. It's ackward. They want to show them off and they are proud of them... which is ok... it's their money. I always know the "what do you think" question is coming. :shock: I keep a couple go-to positive phrases memorized for such occasions. :)

My favorite is... Are they pretty tame? When they say... oh yes... I respond... that's the main thing, it makes it enjoyable like that... and then change the subject.
