The Big Show / Re: Color Question
« on: August 27, 2007, 02:53:53 PM »
That happened to 2 of my family's commercial calves. Both were born a crimsion red color with a white face and when they got around 6 months old they got back tiger stripes and started turning real dark red until they were almost a red-ish black baldy color. But both of these calves came from a 1/4 buffalo (1/2 beefalo) sire. We sold the last calf we had like that just about a month ago. I might have a picture of her on my other computer. If I can find any I might upload them later.

Your heifer changed colors a lot but she still looks good. I like the blue ones.  :)

The Big Show / Re: Fun Calf Names
« on: August 25, 2007, 02:49:53 PM »
My pair of simmental heifers this year are named Paris and Nicky like on the show "The Simple Life". They're spoiled just like the people on that show. I guess it's in the name.

I also have a cow named Yoshi and she was my first show heifer and everyone told me they loved her name. Most of my cattle have human names lol

A lot of my parent's cows names are discriptions of how they look:
Two Horns - a big cows with sideways horns
One Horn - a little old simmental cow that was dehorned but one of them grew back
Midnight - our black herd sire
Two Socks - A black bull calf with two white hind socks (named after the wolf from Dances with Wolves)
Ninja - a black white faced heifer with a black band that went across her face and around her eyes
Whitetail - red heifer with white tail
Little Red - A little red cow
Riding Hood - Daughter of Little Red lol
Big Red - Another red cow that is bigger than little Red
Heart - A cow with a heart on her head
Ying-Yang - a calf with half a white face, and the rest ws balck
Here's a pair of heifers - Fluffy and Silky. They looked almost alike except one had fluffy hair and the other one had smooth (silky) hair
There's tons more too lol

I live in southeast Missouri and most of our shows/fairs are in September. But we don't have nearly as many shows as northwest Missouri does.

The horse industry is going down hill quick. If this "banning horse slaughter" stuff doesn't go down quick then horses and horse ranches are really going to be suffering. Lately there have been a lot of horse abuse cases because they have been demoted from livestock to "pets". Honestly, pets are a lot more likely to be abused and neglected than livestock are because livestock are food; a mean steer actually has a purpose, a mean horse no longer does.
City people don't understand this. Sure some may have a horse they board or rent somewhere but they've never had to take care of one - if they actually took care of one themselves they might find that it isn't their cup of tea. I have a friend who kept a show calf at my house while she was moving because since I enjoy raising and showing cattle, she figured she would too. So I fed and lead the calf when she wasn't around and she enjoyed showing. The next each she got another show calf and kept it at her own house - she didn't think it was so fun that next year and no longer shows cattle anymore because she actually had to work. I'd imagine a lot of those horse owners who board horses are just the same and if they had to walk in the shoes of the breeders and feeders then they'd feel different about horse slaughter.

And the PETA thing - they're getting crazier by the minute. The livestock industry can't do anything anymore without PETA holding a knife to their necks. I think evil organizations like PETA need to be stopped before they ruin everything. If just turned a bunch of cattle out in the wild that wouldn't be good - bulls would be fighting, vegetation for them, humans, and other animals would be ruined, and there would be an over population of hungry cows that keep reproducing. If PETA people had half a brain they'd probably take it would and play with it.

I think ranchers are getting discriminated against because of groups like PETA and that makes me mad because PETA is nothing except an oversized lier. City people hear all their bull and are like "oh no, things are getting killed! Let's blame ranchers!" We really need to do something about power hungry evil organizations like PETA before they wipe us out.

Sorry - but if you can't tell, I really dislike PETA.  :P
