Last week someone had posted on craigslist that they had a Dexter bull for sale. I talked to my husband about it that night and when I went to email the people, the ad was gone. I was frustrated, so I placed my own want ad. Within a few minutes of the posting I got a response, I will be leasing a bull.
We headed out Sunday to look at him. We took the bike (you can read all about what happened on the bike over here) Once we got to Blessed Nation Ranch, I fell head over heels for their bull, Lot. He is listed as a Dunn, but looks more red than that. He is a least 6 inches shorter than my ladies. And a sweety. Wish I had a camera, but you can see Lot over here.
I really like the owner. We talked for awhile, and I tried to show her how to train her girls to a milk stanchion. I tried, but they just weren't having it. But it did take 3 days for me to get my girls into one. I told her how I did it and showed her as best I could.
Next Sunday we will be going down to pick him up for a month. Mama will be in heat twice in October so this works out wonderfully.
