The post that should be titled...

"Darcy Wants to Halter Break Something."



Consider yourself forewarned.

...................................................................

This is 1066...





And her baby, who I am quite fond of...



Did I tell you she has a "big 'ol hip" in her?



And that I want to put a show halter on her? Because I do. Now if only I can convince "The Clinton"...


And then there's Dorito...


She knows what a show halter feels like!

Here with her calf "Cheeto"!



Dorito was a calf that the Gourley girls showed along with...

Ruffles!


Are you sensing a theme yet? Ruffle's is the cow on the left...

She's a daughter of 939.

And her bull calf was our first Mission Statement calf born this year...



Isn't that a great name for a bull? We are really liking our Mission Statement babies...not to be corny, but they're making a statement!

OK, so that's pretty corny...

And don't forget 6603!



She's a 939 daughter too....that 939, she makes some 'darn good females!

And while 6603 is gentle, she's not halter broke.

But I think her calf should be...







Her calf is out of Orange 4, who is a bull Wade and Clint raised....

Well, really just Wade since he was born in Idaho...

And we didn't get him until he was a yearling...

He wants a halter put on him too...



In fact, when we were at Karl's Tuesday to load up Commander, when we pulled into the driveway, Orange 4 came running up to the pick up and trailer and hung out. I think if we would have opened up the door, he would have jumped right in!

But instead, we loaded up Commander....

4 will get turned out with a separate group of cows tomorrow...

Speaking of tomorrow, we're pulling CIDRs, and you know what that means...

AI'ing.

And hopefully another post next week...

With pictures of people, for those of you who are tired of looking at just cows...

But wait, there isn't anyone like that who reads this blog. Right?

Have a great weekend!

They'll be watching...
