Well a girl from our area just called and talk to this person about his calves for sale and he said the heifer is a Walks Alone that is about 4 months old and she will be in a sale at the end of the month and that the heifer is in Buffalo, Texas right now! Well he had the sire right but she is 3 months old and is located in Punta Gorda ,FL and will be in our sale in March. All I can say right now is WOW, I am speechless!!! What calf is going to be in this sale at the end of the month? Not the one pictured! He did not even alter the picture just stole it off of Facebook.

I have tried contacting the person. Want to hear what they say before making their name public but if you want to know send me a message and I will let you know. I don't know what the laws are about doing this but since posting about it on FB I have heard from other people having the same thing happen to them. So when you post photos on FB make sure your name or logo is on it because it is easy for anyone to take your picture and use it as their own. This person was a FB friend and a couple of months ago he posted my picture in his FB and I said something and he just said he really liked my heifer. I have unfriended him and never gave him another thought until I saw it on his web site tonight. Did not even know it was his web site until tonight.   It is strange seeing my calf for sale on someone else's web site.

Tonight I was just looking at several different cattle web sites and I as I was looking at this one site in Texas I see a familiar picture under calves for sale. It is my heifer!! This is a heifer born this fall at my barn and is still at my barn in Florida! I like to post pictures of our calves on Facebook because its a great way to reach potential customers but I have found out it is also a great place for people to steal your pictures for their own use. Lesson learned always watermark your photos and never trust what you see on the internet when buying calves!

Thanks! The cow is a very plane made Jazz x Angus and the she has no problem calving. She weighed 79lbs.  Good luck on your Walks Alone calf! After this calf I am using a lot more Walks Alone.

Here is one of our fall born heifers, a Walks Alone x Jazz heifer that was born Oct. 6th.  Would like some opinions on her. Thank you!

We have a cow that does the same thing when she gets to the last month or so of her pregnancy and once she calves she stops doing that. I would say its just pressure from the calf on her bladder. It happens to people when they are pregnant and I am sure it happens to some of the cows too when they are pregnant. As long as she appears healthy I would not worry about it, just part of the joys of being pregnant.

The Big Show / Re: Bull to use on some plainer cows
« on: November 16, 2012, 07:24:36 AM »
Walks Alone,  We used him this year on a very plain made Jazz x Angus cow and he added a lot of thickness, bone and hair. We are going to use a lot more Walks Alone on our plainer type cows this year.

We have used Rocky several times on our heifers and always get a good solid calf that will be small, sound and hairy. This year we got a set of very small twin heifers and one really nice very large, big bone, square hip and hairy heifer but she is not like most of the Rocky calves we have had. All of ours have been out of Maine cross or Shorthorns.

The Big Show / Carnac and Walks Alone heifer calf pics

The first 2 pictures are of our Carnac heifer. In the first picture she is the black calf in the middle and is only 10 days old in the picture and the other 2 calves are a month old. You can see the size difference. She is a big heifer! The 3rd picture is a Walks Alone heifer that is 7 days old in the picture.

We have a really good Rocky Balboa heifer the only I don't like about her is the curly hair and that seems to be a Rocky Balboa thing. Then we have a really thick,hairy, big bone and powerful Walks Alone heifer that should have been a bull calf and our other favorite calf is a Carnac heifer. The Carnac heifer is huge but came unassisted and is growing like crazy. I have to say these 3 are the best calves we have ever had! Really excited to see how they turn out.
