Great to here Daniel.
I never had a doubt you would get it done.
Boy, You have quite a bite of iron at your disposal.

Don't tell Dan that, it's enough to think your new bull isn't the brightest, it's another
when you find out you bought a Bum Steer. :rofl2:

He'll have to get some of those "Bumper Attachments" I see on Pickup's and
hang 'em from the Udders on the ones he wants bred.

If I find that's the case, he's gonna be a "Happy Meal" at McDonalds!

Ducky, thanks for the vote of confidence. If I didn't drag that old dozer from death several years ago, that bull would still be in that hole. When I bought the dozer, my Dad thought I was nuts, same with my FEL on my Massey GT & other "stuff" I have. Funny how people change their views once they see what work such iron can do. :thumbs:

My thoughts as well.
A bull in a pen of heifers and he should be a happy camper. Sure they are not ugly looking?
We have some very pretty heifers up here is Wisconsin. Should I bring one down to keep him home????:laughingteeth:

They all look mucking ugly to me, but then I have to milk them some day. I tell you what though, you're more than welcome to bring all the pretty heifers you want to my farm!:laughingteeth:

Hey, how you you like to be surrounded by women 24-7? Sure, it sounds good at first, but when bitter reality sets in you'd be heading for the sink-hole too.

Been gone most of the day, so just now getting time to go check on him. Been getting Mom & Dad groceries, & tending farm tax stuff. Long as he lives, he'll get to stay a while. It's the other 2 LARGE bulls that get loaded for market tomorrow, plus one cull cow.

When in "emergency mode" the camera never enters my mind, but if forced, & it stops raining, I'll snap a pic of the bull, and the sinkhole filled in. It was a small sinkhole, about 8' across & maybe 7' deep, but all it took with the frozen slick ground, and his butt end wedged into the tunnel hole in the bottom. The real strange thing now is....the other bull, about 1600lbs that was supposed to be with the heifers just goes where he wants & was in with the dry cows, awaiting extradition to the stockyards. I put him in the barn, secured the gates with 1/4" chain. Gates 5 1/2' tall, taller oak 2x8's inside the barn. Tonight I go to feed him & he's gone!!!!! Not a board or gate out of place. Just a gap of 18" between end of gate & barn, but in the center of the gap is a 4 1/2' 3" steel pipe set in concrete. He HAD to have jumped over this clean, as there's not a single hair on anything, and none of his "big Buddies" hanging on the post! Now I'm not so sure I can force him into the trailer even, as the path to the trailer has pipe rails no taller than what he jumped over! We'll find out tomorrow! I'll be sure to let you know how that goes. Loading up after lunch....I hope!

Good luck with the loading tomorrow Daniel. That trailer might be doing some rocking and rolling if you do manage to get him in there!

Loading that one bull that likes to pull the Houdini tricks is going to be very tricky. He & the other large bull are separated from the cows in the feed lot. The Houdini wanted over in the holding pen with a cull cow separated for loading also. I opened the gate & he went past the gate, so I swung the gate around to shut it....here he comes so I go over the corral panel. He didn't come after me, but I KNOW he would walk right through me as he doesn't care. He goes where he decides he's going. Going to park tall equipment along the loading area to prevent his jumping, and IF he can be persuaded to that loading area, then I'll use a tractor to push him to the trailer. I'm a nervous wreck just thinking about it. Then again, he might walk right into the trailer....you never know. But I'm not attempting any of it on foot, that's for SURE!!!!!!
