Ok, so I have to sell some of my cattle. The herd is about to multiply, and I have to thin it out. The other day, we had to move Chico, our yearling full-blooded pure longhorn bull, to our lower pasture because he was starting to "come of age" around some of our longhorn heifers (his half-sisters). So I will be trying to sell or trade Chico, or Chico may be one of two or three that go to the butcher come late fall. Here is the latest picture of Chico:
Chico is a great looking bull, and he has the classic pure longhorn look. He is out of Holga and the great young bull Quitachon. Both his sire and his dam are very gentle, and so is Chico. He will be one year old in August. If you are interested in Chico, I will post or email you a better and more close up picture. I would be willing to take $500 for Chico.
Most of my regular readers are familiar with Maria. She was the first cow we purchased here at the ranch, and she is the mother of Pita, who we are currently training to ride and pull. Maria is a Longhorn/Watusi cross (1/2 of each) and has some fabulous horns:
Maria is beautiful, and would make an awesome front pasture showpiece. She is only about 5 years old, so she has a lot of horn growing to do. I will be selling her along with her second calf Mariana, who is coming up on a year old in August. Maria is also very pregnant, and is due to drop another calf sometime in the end of August. So I am selling Maria as a "3-fer". I would be willing to take $1200 for pregnant Maria and Mariana. Remember, Mariana is 3/4 Longhorn, as will be Maria's newest calf.
I will be trying to sell these cattle for the next month or so, but if they do not sell, then it is likely that Maria, Mariana, and Chico will go to the butcher sometime in the fall. If you are interested in buying any of them, let me know. I am also willing to make a deal if someone wants to purchase any or all of them for the superior grass-fed organic beef. Delivery is available, but will be expensive.
