OH no.. I'm glad she's doing better. I'm not sure the name.. the little Baldy fall born out of Trademark. Pretty nice little heifer.

Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls & looks like work.
The great pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do.
Neither a wise man nor a brave man lies down on the tracks of history to wait for the train of the future to run over him.

Hi LinZ! See coach, I got to meet LinZ.... hahaha. And I got to admire her cattle:  oh and chew her out for not doing public speaking! I should have drug you along with me. I am sure you walked by her stalls tons. She was between the bathroom alley and the fitting alley.
Hey LinZ, our 3rd place cow calf pair is a Bailey cow. Best money we ever spent! They have good stuff. They sold the blaze heifer there at the nationals. I just saw their January bull Saturday, and we are going to get out butts kicked in the bull division.
And I have to agree about the meat balls, everyone in my family turned their nose at it. But they are all picky eaters and did not complain about any of the other food. When they did regional. In Louisiana,  I loved it. Nothing but authentic Cajun food..... yummy! Tasted things I never heard of but loved.

Ham balls are basically meatloaf made out of ground ham.....and much like meatloaf depends on the mix....we have all had scrarey meatloaf!!!!!  Good hamballs are covered in homemade bbq sauce......next time you get this way, contact me and I will treat you to good hamballs!

IABeef - you know, if I can find me a rip of a steer up north, I may just have to take you up on that!   ;)

Linz - yeah, that is Maci.  She is pretty good!  Our heifer is half sis to maci out of Trademark and ........ ah hem.... one of their donors.  We have big hopes for her so that foot thing was a kick in the butt.  Needless too say, I was a lil apprehensive about our upcoming district show with how she looked when we left IA, but ....... she is doing well and I hope that she has freshened up a bit since then.  Hard to tell when you see them each and every day.  

FSSR - Tell your daughter I got an envelope in the mail with a wonderful Thank You.  I am glad that Becca had such wonderful success with the pair.  It was fun showing her some things on clipping.  I hope that she sticks with it!!!

Kanshow  -  lol

 <cowboy>hey coach, guess what she did most of today? Clipped and dyed! She did 90% of it and I did 10%, which is a complete flip from before. She learned enough to be more confident and "get er done". She is taking 6 head this week. Our calf is sick though, debating on taking the pair. I am calling vet tomorrow. ....
Glad your baby is doing better. Poor thing, she sure pulled on your heart strings..... smart girl (another Bailey cow trick) ;)
See you in a few days....
Oh, and the Ham balls tasted like teriyaki to me......

Wow... six head.  That sounds like a busy OEF.  Glad to hear she has a sparked interest in clipping.  As I got older when I was showing, it got too the point where I would rather clip/fit than lead them in the ring.  Even now..... it is hard to pull myself away from a hfr in the chute to run to the ring to watch one of the kids show.  But...... if I didnt ........ nothing good would happen.

Hope the calf kicks whatever is ailing and you can bring them to the show.  Hope the vet gives you some good news.

My kids had a great time.   They are already excited about going next year.   

Drowning the ham balls in BBQ sauce might have made them go down a little better but as it was, the pototoes and chocolate cake were a pretty good meal.

LinZ- I forgot to tell you Great Job on your first Nationals!  Sounds like you had a good show.... esp considering the level of cattle that were present. 


Siggy - Thank you very much!  If you feel like a road trip come up and watch the show!

Thanks Siggy! That means a lot. Our best chance, the cow calf pair, may not be going if I can not get the calf better.  It is a fun show, and while the rest will be headed back home on Sunday, we get to get back up early Monday morning to take my daughter's charalois heifer for three days. Sigh, doing two breeds is hard sometimes.

What days do you show at OEF?  I just won tickets to the Kellie Pickler concert for Tuesday night, so I know we might be up there then.

bummer it wasn't Wednesday night. That is the supreme female drive where great cattle are shown for the top honors and lots of money is given away! That is at 5pm if I remember correctly.  Simmentals show Friday and Sunday, and the only other one I know is charalois on Tuesday and Wednesday morning.
