Dang Hector's grown!

Post by Nesikep » Wed Sep 14, 2016 1:17 am

I went to my friends place and stayed the night last night, in the morning, I went out for a walk and saw Hector, the bull he bought from me as a weaned calf.. he's just over 4 years old now, and I'm not sure the picture accurately shows his size.. He's sure turned out nice, I might have to get him back!
He's sure impressive when you're standing next to him.

And at about 5 months I think?

I would love for that bull to run with my angus cows. Very nice indeed.

He turned out great Nesi. He was a handsome calf as well.

I didn't like him as a calf but I sure like his as a four year old. He turned out really nice.

He's Mega's brother, and she *always* poses nicely.. they just seem to know how to do it (Daddy in my avatar pic did as well)

The bull lacked depth in the rear quarter at 5 months and still does at 4 years. Just shows me again that they can grow depth. But he's still a nice looking bull and should get the job done for a few more years.

I like him, Nesi. Good bull.

Nice! I don't blame you for getting him back.

Getting kinda inbred aren't you? The bull turned out real nice but you might want to consider
some outside blood. If it was me , and knowing what your herd composition is I would consider a real good red Balancer.
USA.......... ride for the brand or get out!
