Five legged calf.

Check this out I took this picture with my cell phone. I was out looking for calves and riding with a guy that said you want to see a 5 legged calf and you can't say no to that. This calf is sired by a Angus bull and a black cow. He looked normal with the exception of another front leg coming out of his neck.

Run For The Backdrop sale sheet.

Having fun looking at calves.

This isn't that funny until you know that Robert works for Pepsi. I gave him a Holtkamp Cattle hat to get him pose for this picture. If you work for Pepsi, I never saw him take a drink.
Quote of the day. "Cattle showing becomes work only if your not having fun so keep it fun!"

Smiling Bob #609 heifer.

Just took this picture of her in the pasture while looking at the calves. This one is so easy to spot in the pasture. Looks better on the move than standing. A true attention getter.

#936 Ringer heifer in Run for the Backdrop

This is a nice Ringer out of a first calf heifer sired by Witchdoctor. She has awesome hair and lots of potential and probably won't bring a lot of money. She's one of my value picks of the sale. Registered Mainetainer.
