No, Ma'a......I mean.....Jill. She was calling me a Hillbilly, because of my Big Smiths (the most awesomest brand of Overalls ever produced). You should try on a pair. ;D

SKF stands for our farm name Silver King Farms.

Does the Silver King name have anything to do with Silver King Tractors?  Just wondering because back home in Ohio they have the Silver King festival and its kinda neat

My daughter who is 12 has a Simmental show heifer that she shows.  She used to be big into youth rodeos untill she had a pretty bad barrel racing accident and broke her arm (lucky to be alive), so she decided no more rodeos and has taken up showing cattle.  I never would have thought I could get into the cattle thing like I have, because I love my horses, but I must say that we are having a great time at the shows on the weekend and having a blast at the Major's this year.  I must say that when she was into horses I had to almost drag her out everyday to clean stalls, with her heifer and steer it is so very different.  She actually goes out everyday and feeds and cleans pens and works with her cattle with out being told to do so.  I guess she is on the right path, she is doing what she loves!!!

isn't it funny how things work out in the long run too be better? I'm glad that she was OK other than the arm. scary to say the least!

Shorty is both the nickname of the cow in my avatar (since she was my first Shorthorn - very original, I know!!!) and one of my old nicknames, since I am a little small in stature...The rest is self-explanatory!  ;D

My SteerPlanet handle started out as an insult, about 11 years ago, at Tyson Foods, Inc., Berryville AR plant. Just like the young man from Virginia, I didn't have a job (or a Cattle Operation, like so many of my peers)  waiting on me when I graduated from the University. So, to pass the time, I went back to my old stand-by: The Chicken Plant. Northwest Arkansas was in the midst of a transition from Mayberry to Metropolitan, and, "lucky Me", I had a snooty California-girl ( Valley-girl lingo, etc.) for a Supervisor.
The job I had, was the "Grinder Operator", for Lines 5 and 6. This was a new experience, as I hadn't worked in "Preparation" of Fully Cooked Product before. If I remember correctly, I was responsible for ginding Breast Filets, in order to transform them into the "BK Broiler" sandwich patty. In fact, those two lines together produced about 2/3 of all the Chicken Sandwich patties sold in the Continental USA at any/all Burger King Franchises.Worked 6 and 7-day weeks. The job involved a lot of heavy lifting, as each "tub" of raw Breast Meat weighed 70lbs, and a "Batch" was 1700 pounds, counting Marination & all. Me& Gayle Schupenheymer had to ''wash down'' at each Break-period, too.  And, being fresh outta school, pressed Wranglers or Cinch Jeans was about all I had. So, I hopped it on down to Race Bros. and bought 6pairs of Big Smith Overalls.

Back to Valley Girl and my nickname.

My Supervisor was passing out paychecks one week, but kept passing me by. In disgust, She said, "I don't see a'Billy Bob's' check in here", when I asked for mine. My 'Lead', Jeff Siverly, said, "Oh, that's Gary!  He worked here as a teenager. Now, He's just a sorry, ol' taxpayer like Us!'', and kinda diffused the situation a little bit.

Somehow, or another, "GaryBob"  kind of evolved from that conversation. In fact, many people to this day (the ones I didn't go to High School with), in Berryville and Green Forest don't even know my middle name is "Allen".

I still wear Overalls when I'm working a "work" kind of job. Just like my Daddy,and both Grandfathers.

Long story, but, that's  how "GaryBob" came into existence.

I use fluffer because "scotch comb motor" was too long  ;)
I couldn't think if anything else when I was creating a nickname.  We don't show much anymore, but hope to get back into it when our kids are old enough.

It ain't a ''story'' Ma'am, it's the truth. That supervisor was so uppity ( the Latinos there called her "la Vanidosa" behind her back), no joke, she would check her make-up in the reflection off the side-panels (made of stainless steel) on the "Formax" machine. She got a Communications Job, eventually, at Corporate.

On my first trip to the North American in Louisville in 1983, I went to Churchill Downs to see the home of thoroughbred racing. There was a horse there that day named " Justintime" and for some reason that name stuck in my head. The next year, when I was naming our calves, I selected Justintime as the name of our best bull calf of that year. After a good show career as a yearling, he topped our production sale at $7000 and eventually came back here to work as a herd sire when he was 9 years old until he was 12 years old. The last daughter of Justintime finally left here last fall. They were some pretty good females.

Fast forward several years..... last summer, I received an email from a friend who said that one of my current herd sires was being discussed on this site. I had not found this site previous to this time, so I logged in ... and was asked for my nickname. For some reason, I thought of justintime, and I decided that it was probably as good as any other name as I could think of, so I used it.
