Another Big Week

EvergreenSaleOct2017-5

We continue to wean, halter break, and work our butts off. Toni, Anna and I had a great time at the Evergreen Exclusive Angus show last weekend. We met quite a few new people that we do not normally see at the Jr Angus Shows, and we also got to see old friends and family. We brought two heifers home, one for Anna and one for Kaine. The heifer and steer we tried to get for Kade both went for too much. This is a great Sale for the industry and allows sellers to see a wide variety of Angus cattle. Steer numbers were down at the sale this year, so the steers sold really high.

 

Con went to his new home on Saturday after we got back from Moses Lake. He made it to his new home safely and he looks like he really likes his new home in the pictures and videos we have received. Blurose is leaving on Thursday and Chrome is leaving next week for California. Once Blurose leaves, Smokey the bottle baby is going to get halter broke for a few days before the next group comes in. He has already had a halter on multiple times, including today, but isn’t really into people directing him as he thinks he is the boss.

We also weaned Double Pecan, Peeps, Shelby and Latte on Sunday. So far all four foals are doing great and started eating right away. We have a low stress weaning system with their dams right across the fence from them the first week, the foals cannot reach through the fence to nurse. All of these foals have been good sized, but Latte is huge. We have four more foals scheduled to be weaned this weekend. The four weaned last weekend will be haltered and the halter breaking process will start this weekend.

Kade’s game Saturday was postponed to Monday, so only Kaine had a football game Saturday. However, Kade had a game Monday, Kaine had a game Tuesday and Kade has a game on Wednesday. Then both of them have games on Saturday. Saturday beginning at noon is Grandpa’s 90th birthday party in Connell. We also have our little boy, Jaxsen, turning 7 on Saturday.

Tuesday Dr. Jennifer King was out to preg check some heifers, coggins and vet check Chrome, fix some hernias, float an old mares’ teeth, and take a look at some other foals. Another full day!

Halter Breaking Day 1

Categories: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , , , , ,

A Slow Week

No halter breaking this week, we give the foals a week to settle in their first week of weaning. However, Sunday, Con, Blurose and Chrome all got halters put on, and they all did REALLY well. Toni and I also hauled the foals that are going to be weaned next weekend to the house. This week, on top of all of the sports during the week, we have the Evergreen Sale Thursday- Saturday and Toni will be gone Sunday, so Anna and Kaine get to help me. We have four to wean next weekend; Shotgun Shelby, Latte, Peeps and Pecan. Kade and Kaine also rode Jazzy around bareback on Sunday. Pictures hopefully will be posted tomorrow; I could not find the cable to my camera to upload them. Jazzy did great considering she hasn’t been ridden in 2 years. We just pulled her out of the pasture, put an adult on her first, and then let the kids ride her. The kids always get such a kick out of having a a variety of horses to ride. Jazzy’s filly, Pecan, is a Double filly and is super tame. The boys were riding Jazzy and Pecan was right beside them. At one point Kade was leaning off of Jazzy and petting Pecan off of Jazzy’s back. Pecan is one of the 2 foals we have entered into the AQHA Youth program for 2017. We are excited to see who gets this sensational filly.

Kicker hauled the two extra show steers into McCarys to get butchered, so if you are looking for beef, now is the time to get really good, grain fed beef. Your choice of cuts if you order enough. All beef is USDA inspected.

On Sunday Anna and I took the heifer that we are getting ready for the Evergreen Exclusive Sale next weekend, to Connell for Jay to clip her. She is a very nice heifer by Connealy Black Granite if you are looking for an Angus show heifer. This heifer was the Angus Champion at Adams County Fair, lots of body, bone, and substance. She is looking pretty sharp. Ben, Kicker and I worked the feeder calves since Peales are coming on Sunday to get theirs. Ben and Kicker also went and got wheat straw to put in with the calves and bulls as a filler in addition to their alfalfa. Ben and Kaine worked on the corral Sunday morning, while Anna and I were getting the heifer clipped.

On the sports front though it has been a pretty hectic week. Jaxsen had a soccer game Tuesday, Kade had a football game Wednesday, and Jaxsen had a soccer game on Thursday. Then Saturday, Kaine had a football game in Royal and Kade in Connell.

Also, on the dog front, Jewels needed to be AIed Friday, so my favorite cousin Whitney took her to Spokane for me to get AIed. So if you are looking for a mastiff puppy we should have some in 63 days or so!

We are staring into the face of another busy week. Today we had visitors out to look at their colt, then tonight we get to start halter breaking the three. 2 kids have games today, a field trip, another game Thursday, going to see Great-Grandma (same as every week), and then Thursday into the Evergreen Sale in Moses Lake. Wish us luck!

Meet the Stallions: Captains Double Coy

Captains Double Coy
85% NFQHA

Grandson of Major Bonanza, Coys Bonanza and Alotta King

$500 breeding fee, lfg, multiple mare discount.

“Double” is an outstanding stallion that really puts his stamp on his foals. His foals are really easy to break and are really cowy. We were really happy to get the opportunity to buy Double from Vance and Carol Burke from the Soap Lake area. Double was professionally trained and has been used on the ranch. He shows cow ability, but rides like a gelding. He is a fun horse to have around and an easy horse to get along with. We are currently using daughters of Double on the ranch, have shown some of his foals, and have been very impressed with their easy nature, but ability to work cattle. We have also sold foals out of Double for roping and barrel horses. Double tends to throw a huge hipped foal, with lots of instant speed when needed. Perfect for performance and ranch work. Not only is Double an outstanding stallion, but his award willing personality, that he passes down to his foals, makes him a favorite among all that know him. Once you have a Double baby, you will only want more.
