Thanks Aussie_Cowgirl,
Vince is my "baby" has to have his scratches everyday without fail.Loves to give me a kiss back but that darn tounge is too damn rough :eek:
He will be a steer shortly but im at a loss as to what to do with him.
Bought him at a couple of weeks old.Paid a whole $15 for him.He needed a good feed and some TLC though. He was so wild when we got him. My OH and inlaws were not too happy when i told them i would like to go the route of Brahman x cattle(they run Angus) as they think they are too wild and tempremental ( angus are worse IMO , darn things kick like he!!) so as Mother in law and OH were there the day we went and got him,i had a point to prove ;-)

I have grown rather attached to him so he might just be a lucky one and get to live out his days as a pretty paddock ornament :lol2: Need to convince OH first :nod:

Nah, there is so much misconception around Brahmans I think. My Dad always told me a story of when he worked on a feedlot and their resident Brangus bull and how whenever he fed them hay the bull would come over for a scratch. I myself had a MG x Brahman and whilst he could be flighty and handy with his legs he was the most affectionate creature. If you talk to the breeders most of them will say they are the most intelligent cattle you will find. Nothing wrong with a paddock ornament either. On another farm the guy had 5000+ hectares and he had 2 5 year old angus steers they bottle raised that he didnt have the heart to sell.

Keren, she will be for sale once weaned :D :nod:

Denoginnizer, yes it is very tidy , i like it!!

Jeanne, Im in NSW Australia. Not too far from the coast but we have great land out here,just far enough away from the sea that it isn't sandy!
He looks much like his dad that little guy,but has his mum's beautiful nature :)

Thanks Bigbull,i try LOL... Slowly working out which cows are better than others,selling off the not so good ones...
I wrote in an earlier post a while back that the majority of calves i get are the sickly or skinny ones.Generally pay $5-$25 for them. Jersey bulls are free as they should be,and i only end up with a couple of them everynow and then if i'm desperate for a calf.
