Eye Candy thoughts
« on: April 01, 2010, 08:36:24 AM »
Was wondering what people thought of the bull Eye Candy. Calf reports, size, bw's, etc?

I have only good things to say.  I will try to take pictures of the Eye Candy heifer that we will be showing this year and keeping as a replacement.  BW seems to be around 80-90 lbs so far for us.  We will use him again.

I seen a real nice one last fall.  Sounds like EC's come pretty easy also.

i've seen several heifers that i have really liked. however, i can't think of any steers. the heifers have all been powerful but still sound and cowy looking.
It is better to keep one's mouth shut and to appear stupid, than to open it and remove all doubt.

i love the consistancy of all the calves he throws from heifers to bulls. They are a little thick fronted but that is his only fault! he sires easy keeping, correct, and deep bodied cattle!

Haven't used the bull but looking at his calves i would say he needs to be bred to a clean fronted cow,as all his calves seem plainer fronted.

he is plainer fronted, but in the clubby deal he can really have a place to soften up and put a good structure on some of these steery females.

Have one Eye Candy Bull calf.....Approx 85 lbs out of a Feaky Fronted, long bodied, Mossy Oak that needed softening up.  It worked!  Cool Calf! Coal Black, Great Hair, big boned, structure is great!  I will use him again and again.  If I can figure out how to load a picture (maybe my 11 year old daughter can for me) I will try to get one on here over the weekend.

Had an Eye Candy heifer tonight - just got back from the barn in fact.   She is huge out of a Wonder cow - got to be at least 125 and this may be conservative.  She had her unassisted but that's a miracle.   Huge bone, top and hairy.  I'll post some pics in a few days.

I'll bet most of that birthweight came from Wonder.Redgate's use to have some big calves outa him.
Dare to dream big...and watch it become a reality!
