Black Angus vs Red Angus




Dang they were mad!  The neighboring rancher's Red Angus bull was taunting my Black Angus bull.




Both snorted, circled, kicked dirt up as high as they could....






They talked smack for about an hour before losing interest and wandering off.  Not sure who won this argument.  lol
I was glad that there are two fences and a dirt road between them. Can imagine how much damage they would do with one measly barbed wire fence in their way.

I went to an international level cattle sale when I was a kid. They had a lot of bulls for sale. The top two bulls they were scheduled to sell $100K shares of killed each other in a holding pen. It was an astounding tragic loss. Be careful I have been stomped before and it was no fun, but I am sure you have experienced similar events. Especially during calving season.

It's disgusting when the neighbor stares right back at you. And then dares you to do something about it! :-)

Oh, boy, they sure look like a couple of bad boys!

Dang Jim, what a terrible loss!
I bet the owners were heartbroken. They are such powerful critters.. I give mine a wide berth and keep one eye on him at all times. :)

cowgirl said...

lol Ralphy! I agree! :)

I think both breeds are handsome and agree with you...good fences make GREAT neighbors.

I'm thinking you must have a herd of "purty good looking girls" to have two "good looking guys" arguing over who was gonna get the "bragging rights"...;)


Keep smilin'

Oh, that sounds real scarey . . . I'm not a farm girl but I know how strong these animals are. I'm sure when they are mad about something their strength multiplies. I had a nephew hospitalized from jumping in a pen to retrieve a bail of hay dropped from his truck. That was 30 years ago and he still has pain from the injuries accrued that day.
Around here we what to eat them, not fight them, LOL.

Mrs JP, I still love those little white faced babies too. :)
Good to see ya!!

cowgirl said...

Thanks... good to see ya!

cowgirl said...

Ui Connie! I'm glad to hear your nephew made it out of the pen!
They are so powerful..
Thanks for stopping by! :)

Yowsa! That's a lot of ornery beef!

I'm heading to a red angus cattle farm in two weeks, I'm looking forward to it! But lesson learned, I will not stare down the bulls ;)

Hey Ms Jeanie,
I'm glad you didn't end up having to repair fence. Our across the fence neighbor is a rodeo stock contractor so we see regular trash talk sessions and turf wars between the boys on both sides of the fence, sometimes it escalates and egos take over. Fortunetly here latley, we haven't had to repair the fence because of them but we did have to repair a section a couple of weeks ago due to high water on the creek that runs through our place. Sorry I haven't talked to you latley, things have been really busy around here with work and all. Take care and keep smiling.

:) David, it's a strange feeling when I stand on the road between the two. I feel mighty small and insignificant. lol I do stay close to the pickup though.
Hope you had a great Memorial weekend. :)

cowgirl said...

Chris it's nice to see you! Wondered if you are getting any of this bad weather. Hope not.
Dang, I bet the rodeo stock can be a bit ornery.
You must be getting some good rains your way... Sorry that your fence was damaged. Feel free to send any extra rain my way.
Good to see ya Chris. :)

cowgirl said...

lol Chris...keep an eye on those red angus bulls. They're supposed to have a better disposition than black angus but I've not noticed that between the black that I've had over the years and the reds my neighbor has had. A bull is going to be a bull no matter what.
Have a great time at the farm!
