Hi everyone,
After all the honest comments (good and bad) the bulls I posted received I am interested in hear more. I know the red angus got the atention of some of you, I also know that the young black angus was not your cup of tea for several of you, also that the herefords toplines were not the best, so I want to continue exchanging ideas and pictures. I need to find a bull suitable to catch the interest of the american breeders...something VERY difficult for a south american bull !!!

So I have another bull at my facilities that I want to hear your opinions, his name is Caraí-Guazú that in guaraní (native language of many southamerican tribes) means something like "Big Sir" or "Big Mister".....




Thanks for your comments

Lorenzo

Like both of those bulls. I think the first one appears to not have a real good topline because of the way he is holding his head. They aren't perfect, but I like their muscling and overall conformation.

Niether one has missed a meal either. I wouldn't hesitate to use them on my Hereford mommas.

Thank guys, it seems the way we are taking the pictures doesn´t help with the toplines....the head is too high maybe ??...

Lorenzo-

Yes, I agree that your method of 'stacking' your bulls (positioning them for photographing them) does cause their mid-spine area to become concave - Head too high=Thoracic area concave, or sagging. Also try to position them so that their front legs are slightly higher than their rear legs.

I saw a picture of my Fourth GREAT-Grandchild a few days ago! You guys are behind the times. I tend to think that it has something to do with Masculinity and Fertility!!

Now Doc, lets keep this in perspective, it's not like YOU just sired a child. THAT would actually be something to crow about. Possibly even a miracle.

Congrats on the baby!!!!

Both good looking bulls. The first I don't think is that weak topline at all, just the way he is standing. The second may be a little weak. Neither is as bad as the Hereford toplines in the original two Herf pics. Frankly, I've seen very few black Angus bulls in the U.S. that I felt had that much mass and muscle, especially through the rear quarter. If it will even things out for you Angus guys, I'll also say that there are very few U.S. Herefords that will stack up to Knersie's.

BTW, congrats on all the babies etc.

I think Doc is pointing out that he had the prepotency to pass his fertility on down to the the succeeding generations?

I like both but if given the choice I would pick Payé over Caraí- Guazú as he seems to be more a complete & total package. For photos you could try one with the head down maybe eating some grain off the ground or maybe even try standing the front legs on a block to wedge the front like they do with dairy cattle. Would like to see your red angus again in a more natural head position & maybe even from a different angle see what they look like from a 3/4 angle shot

If I remember - - - yes - - I gave that ALL away to my sons 60 - 63 years ago! It's a sad commentary on old age!
