The rocks probably aren't too good to be walking them around on...maybe that is why your calf has he feet set the way he does in your top picture.

///I agree-the Short X looks a little more complete over his top etc from the rear-pretty green-from the side hes a little wierd on those rear leggs(may be the rocks) and sorta high gutted. The first calf is fuller-better side profile-dissappoints somewhat from the rear-not gonna burn any barns down in Tex-as good as those calves get. O0

When we decided to switch to showing cattle last year... mainly since we started raising and selling some we thought we knew what we were getting ourselves into.  This being the second (and last) year son will be able to show, I can say 'WHEW!"  As much as I love it, it truly is very hard work and very much a big roll of the dice.  My Dad always played poker so I guess that's where I get it from!   (lol)
No but seriously we are right in the center of TX and thought we'd have a easier time selling calves.  We've sold a few but certainly not nearly enough to justify the work and expenses.  I realize it takes time to build any business... and also the economy certainly hasn't helped... but in a way I'll be glad when son is done showing since I think people come nearer to buying from you if they know you don't have kids showing.    Fortunately we also raise and sell dorper sheep and a few show goats too.

With all the breeders and sales in Iowa I would have figured someone would have said either Iowa or at least the midwest.

I agree I was for sure thinking someone would have gone with Iowa with all the sales there.

Texas? If there are so many good cattle in Texas then why in the world are there so many cattle from SD, NE and IA sold to Jocks in Texas!!!!!! LOL!!!!! My vote is the upper midwest. Always raised the best cattle in the country.

I agree that the  best cattle are raised in the midwest, but there are thousands of them shipped into texas because the market is so high for them downhere.

All I was saying is you don't have to live in Texas to take advantage of the demand. Live up north where good cattle are plentiful and if you have good enough cattle the people who want them will find you.
