  • Palabras Pintorescas - Bullfighting compared to ballet

    There is a new kid in the corral, a different kid to some. To us who live on a ranch, he is a welcome addition. He is a shiny black yearling black Angus bull. He has a fancy background, and a fairly light birth weight, very important when one has a working ranch, as in a cow/calf operation.

    He jumped out of the trailer, ready to take on that old bull that has served this ranch so well for a long time. The old bull probably outweighs him by a thousand pounds, so it didn’t take long for him to realize he’d just be friends, fighting is for another day and time.
