AJ:

Except for two things...

1.  Most of the old posters that I and Kanabe and others above have named, ARE NOT five year cowboys.  They are still in the cattle business.
2.  Then where are the NEW FIVE YEAR COWBOYS on this site to replace the ones that are gone?

not selling to 5 year cowboys probably has hurt your business.

Not sure I would want to treat potential customers like that.

Kinda goes hand in hand with a lot of things.

Not sure why you have never drank from a half full glass.

Must not be thirsty.

The average lifespan of a registered herd used to be anyway........5-7 years. I can't quote a source right off hand.
People can't believe we have such a big moon for such a small town.

I'v been a registered user since Jan 2010, but was just a stalker before that. Everything said on here is true and fits for me; I have very little interest in Shorthorn cattle (though I did buy 5 straws of Manimal to try for spring half blood calves, on a recommendation that came from this site). I started here to learn about daily hair care and feeding, and still use AAOK's base ration for our feed. We too are in the "moving out of show cattle" mode, with both of my kids getting older and ready to move on (the third one has been out for several years now). I will still breed the cattle and sell good quality seed stock, but will not likely show for much longer.
I check in here about once every few weeks, just to see what is new and who is active. I too was looking for information on Denver Bulls, this used to be the place to go to get the newest information on what was coming up! Doesn't seem that way anymore. I get most of my information and exchange discussions on Cattle Today, that board is more active but has the same banter as here.
Good thread to see who is still out there and active. I miss the old guys too, but life moves on and people go different directions.
God, family, and Simmental cattle;  that's what makes life worth living!

obvious that some people have figured out to make good customers out of the 5 year cowboys and some havent.


The next lines just write themselves.


That in a nutshell is why there are fewer posters if they cant come to a site that offers interesting posts without getting slammed for being a 5 year cowboy, slamming the people that sell to them, and the one complaining the most and the longest is the one that has nothing to offer them and never will.


Not sure how to spin humor on this like SD always seemed able to do.

For years, there are times that I could not understand Kanabes posts.  Sometimes his purposeful attempts at being vague, thought provoking, and humorous perhaps are an inside joke or he is attempting to be sly and/or coy?  In any event...

I do not understand what set Kanabe off about 5 year cowboys being customers and treating them poorly, let alone a half full glass of water?  I believe that I read all the previous replies on this post...

Perhaps there was a previous post that was removed by the Steer Planet Administration that I did not read prior to its removal that Kanabe found objectable?

Does anyone else have this same issue?  And...Can anyone help by giving me some insight here?

Ya know what SEA, I tried really hard to stay politically correct as I weighed in on this thread.  This is really a great thread in which we can all hopefully learn something about ourselves and those that have disappeared over the months or years.

Here is the blatantly honest truth...for ME.

Knabe and aj , you two run people off.  You guys are like a couple of 10 year old children that need to be separated.  It doesn't matter what either of you says, the other has a smart ass answer.

How many damn times do we have to hear about some carrier bull that aj took to Denver a lifetime ago?  Don't you realize Knabe...the bulk of the people that used to come around this site don't give a crap about that?  They just don't care.  But you care...you aren't going to let that die for damn sure.

You guys are poison, and likely too self centered to realize it. 

I have checked in on this site every day, multiple times per day (like the good old days) over the past week of so.  I told myself that I need to stay involved here.  This is a great site that the founder built and I need to share whatever I know.

Now I remember why it was so easy to just gradually go away.  Both of you should have had your asses thrown out of here years ago.  Maybe you should have a little bit of respect for what the founder of this site built, and either agree to disagree with one another...or just go away.  You are slowly destroying this resource for the coming generation of showmen.

i got nothing except it grates on me to say how evil and bad people are that used carriers and then takes one to denver. don't like the continual bad characterizations.

i don't really like the characterization of drug store cowboy.
it's a glass half empty mentality.

many people make a successful living catering to them.
it's a glass half full mentality.

complaining about how much shorthorns suck and never producing ones that don't is a glass half empty.

creating and selling shorthorns that people think don't suck and make their children happy is a glass half full mentality.

i apologize for having a hard time giving an inch on this issue. i understand what talcool1 is saying. maybe the 5 year drugstore cowboys don't really need to know about the hypocrisy that bothers me. they can find it out on their own.

I guess I would consider myself a drug store cowboy.

I guess I didnt know we werent supposed to have cattle.

went back and reviewed the last 10 or so pages.

i don't post on over 95% of the threads at all, create new ones that are just pictures or whatever and only 4 threads have anything anyone is talking about on 10 pages. about the same for AJ. it's not like we are even remotely taking up the bandwidth of the site. not sure what most means.

i would hardly call that every thread.

dropping it.

Ive been on here for a few years and I do read fairly often but I rarely post anymore for a few reasons:

1) I have a lot less questions than I did a few years back.
2) I have very little interest in Shorthorn cattle.
3) I have no interest in people bashing other people.
4) Most of the threads (including this one) get hijacked by AJ and Knabe.

That said, as someone who didnt grow up in a show family I did learn a lot about hair care, nurtition, etc. from this website over the past years.

Edited to add: I also bought my first herdsire off of the Steerplanet classifieds!
