New Bull !!!!

Today was the BIG BULL SALE!!! The Express Ranch had 500 of these guys to sell today. The first bull they sold was over $100,000, and that was only half possession as they call it, we let the other rancher have that one........heheheh, that's a BIG joke!!!! They had several of these kind, some more of their Champion ones went for $65,000, $50,000. Many went for $10,000-$20,000 and then they started getting them down to the $3000 range and under. Elijah got him a good one I think, it will make some calves anyway and thats what we want!!!! It was a fun day, a beautiful day for the little ones to get out and run around when they got tired of sitting. Hosie said, "why dosen't that man just talk normal so we can understand him," speaking about the auctioner!!!! This Express Ranch operation is a major deal. Anna got her heifer there last year and we like the livestock they produce, but we are just "peons" compared to the "big wig ranchers" that were there from all over. I'll have to post a picture of the new guy later.....he is wwwwiiiilllllddddd in the trailer!!!!!!!!

Now gotta go figure out what to feed these hungry rustlers!!!!

I went to a few auctions as a kid, pretty fun to watch. I agree with Hosie though they should just talk normal so we can all understand! She is so cute saying that.

I can't wait to see pics of he new bull. I am glad you were able to find something to suit your needs and I hope he isn't too much of a trouble maker but more of a "lady's man" so you can have lots of baby calves.

My mother grew up around auctions...her daddy (my grandpa) was a famous auctioneer in Oklahoma during the 1930's and 40's. Mom always went with him to the sale barns and helped. She says that is where I got my love for talking! ;)
