Just recovering from Ft Worth, and getting ready for San Antonio...

Think there were about 1800 head there.  As always, lots of spectacular calves. The photos on pulse arent lyingthe quality was crazy deep everywhere, but especially in the heat classes. We did a lap in class 5 exotics, and hard to argue the 10 he used to place. They had to be deep, fresh, and powerful to get a sale hole, didnt have to be exceptional on structure, but again, the calves at the top of these classes had it all. Grand and reserve were spectacular...hard to argue those 2.

I really liked Mullinix. He was pretty consistent, he talks a great set of reasons, and I really think he paid attention at the 10th hole (where sale holes start).  I think it was one of the Hereford classes that he spent time talking 9th-13th...kind of unusual, but as a parent I really appreciated it.

The exotic classes here are probably the toughest in the world to judge due to raw #s, depth of quality, variety, fitting...and my 2 cents is that Mullinix did a really nice job. He was quick but I thought he got good looks at the vast majority of each class. Part of what made him quicker is that he didnt profile, he looked on the move and rear view. He was thorough enough that I thought that was plenty. Im looking forward to hauling to him again.

That's amazing and more steers than all the other big shows combined plus many state fairs.A friend of mine was there and some his friends grandchildren showed and made the sale. The classes that are based on breed characteristics are still rewarded well and their calves were 4th in class and received $13#which is more than the ISF grand.The trick is being good enough to classify but not good enough to win.He said there is nothing that compares  to the FWSS.
