I can verify every thing mr hilbert is saying about his bull, having never met the man i am in no way bias.
My favorite part about the bull is his rear world size! he's no dud


Not to change the posts subject but knabe, what does an extre vertabrae effect and is it a pro or con?
If it don't fit, force it.
If it breaks, it needed fixed anyways

Looking at One & Only's pic I think the combination of his choked throat and how the white is on his head and chin create a optical illusion about his head not looking proportional.

I am not starting an argument in any way here...I just want to point out that this discussion relative to One & Only illustrates to me how good he is on the hoof...people are arguing about his head.

I think he's a helluva bull. I've seen him a handful of times, only went back to make sure he was a good as I thought he was. Can't wait to use him.

For the record I wouldn't even know one of the owners if I saw them. He's just a breath of fresh air in the clubby deal.

I looked over One & Only pretty dang hard, and thought he was a really good bull!  I did not notice anything wrong with his head, and if I remember right he is like an Oct born fall bull.  I hope the owners don't mind, but here are a couple candid shots from this week's trip down to Nichols.  His head looks good to me!  He's a maturing bull that should have some age differences over those young April bulls that are at stud.

the mudd on his legs skews your mind how much bone is actually there, he's bigger boned than what he looks in that picture...... really like the 2nd picture by the way

I shot a LOT of pics of various bulls...that way I can go back and look at the real deal, after I get slightly numbed up to the glossy pro shots!  I didn't intend to shoot pics to pass around, and present them in their best pose, but rather a few shots of the important areas that one needs to see.  I really liked One & Only, and I'm an angus guy!  I think the couple pics of him showed how nicely he has matured and people may appreciate that.  I think more people need to spend some time and see these bulls at stud if you are serious about the business.  I know they look great fit to the hilt with the Denver sun shining on them, but after you get them home and put them to work, you may see them in another light!  ;)  I have some pics of some very popular bulls that I thought looked horrible, and out of respect of their owner's I have no intention of sharing them.  The bulls are around the Midwest (and other places) so just take some time to do your homework.  You will thank yourself in the long run...

PS  And another bull that I thought looked great was DR WHO...he is OLD and has held up well.  Many of these will never see that age...

I was down there a month ago and thought one and only looked very good.  Only concern on him is hair for show cattle.  but he is double clean.
Also thought hollywood looked very good for a mature  bulll.  Was very sound.
Dr Who had a hard time getting around when i was down there.  Looked like he may have gotten hurt breeding cows.  But have seen him in the past and he got around fine but wasnt getting around the best at all a month ago.

bluffcountry, its OK to share...

in a PM though  :)
The livestock (show) industry is a tough one- if you've never had anything worth a damn you might as well go on the internet and rundown everybody you can.

OK...here's one more pic!  Pretty sure the owners of this guy aren't on the message board, so hope not to offend them!  He is a 10 year old bull (we'll call him Max) and is about 30 inches tall!  Big disappointment!!   ;)  He will moderate them though...  :o  Probably won't add much muscle, performance or hair!!  O0
