That's consistent with what Matt told me about him back in October. They had a vet from here in Texas up there working on him to improve comfort and apparently it had helped him to the point that his semen quality had improved. I know we got very good conception with him (the original) on cows we bred to him last fall.
He is what he is and I imagine they sell his semen about as fast as he can produce it.
Red, you helped me re-size and post the pictures of Heatwave and others I took last year. I saw Heatwave about a month ago and he looked better than he did last year. He didn't appear to be as thin and the spastic movement of his backlegs was much less than it was the last time I saw him.
