The Favored One, Our Herd Bull


An enjoyable stroll around the pastures brought me to the hay ring where our favored boy was enjoying his breakfast. I thought it would be fun to snap a quick shot of him using my phone but he wasn’t paying me any attention. I stepped closer, no response. Closer still, only a disinterested look. I played with his ear – but he only continued eating. I rubbed his head and finally he pulled back & looked at me.

Our herd bull - 2,500 lbs of docile puppy dog! #TexasHomesteader

He grew into a large 2500-lb bull and still as docile as he can be. RancherMan always scratches his head as we walk through the pastures. I love having such a docile bull in our herd. ♥ him!
