Joe and I went out and took pictures of some of our 18-month- old bulls this weekend. It was a new experience for me. We have had lots of cattle pictured at the feed efficiency center, but a professional photographer comes in to do that, and I have never had the fortune to help.
But Friday was my lucky day. And it was kind of fun after I got the hang of it. We started out with Joe taking the pictures and me moving the bulls around. That didn’t work so well. It seems I’m a bit of a chicken. Plus, I couldn’t make the cool pigeon noise that got the bulls attention.
I’ll just give you a quick run down of how this whole picture-taking thing went. First, we would sort off a bull and wait for him to stand still and pose. We wanted the closest rear leg to be back slightly farther than his other one. Do you know how long it takes for a bull to stand that way? Then, Joe would try to get the bull’s attention so that his head was alert and his ears were forward. (This was where the cool pigeon noise came in handy.) Again, do you know long it takes for a bull to look that way? I could post the 47 pictures of this bull with his ear cocked or his head turned, but I won’t.
I’ll show you this one instead…
See what I had to deal with?
On a brighter note, we are offering all of these bulls for sale, so if any of them caught your eye, be sure to give us a call!
Hope you have a great day!
