Cool pic

Gregr..

Cool pic. I talked to your wife the other day when she came to get the UPS packages from me. I asked her how you get away with buying so many boats. She informed me that you are a "mechanical genius". I think she said she lost count after 70 boats or something like that. I think you've got a keeper there. I thought I was bad because I've had 8 boats in 18 years!

Bad thing is, my 3yr old beefmaster bull suffered the same hit from another peice, cut the tendons in his ankle completely in half, he lost a lot of blood, we did what we could to stop it untill the vet opened up YESTERDAY, well we just lost him, 2000lb of meat GONE, 1400.00 vet bill, GONE, lots of calfs- GONE!
My wife bottle fed that boy, raised him up, and she is out there some kind of upset!
I assume my only option is to burn him??
How could i recoup my losses? home owners? FEMA? Income Tax?
I have no idea how i am going to move that big ole bull out of the barn!

I know they're born and bred for food, but I hate to hear 'bout an animal suffering like that. Since he was a breeder, I might assume that you also had an attachment to the fellow. Would it be an option to butcher him there and pull him out in pieces?

we raised prime breed stock brangus in fla. my grandfather and i... only 50-80 head, of the blue-blackest, prettiest animals... but they become like family after a while... you know who the sweet cows are, you know who the trouble-makers are, who gives you the best calves.... the big papa patriarch bull is like the king over the court... to have lost ours would have been tough! on the heart and the wallet!!!

sorry for your loss..

I grew up on 12 sections in Central TX. I would highly recommend NOT burning him. It will be VERY difficult to burn him to the point where he will not have rotting tissue still left. You could burn him if you have tremendous amounts of diesel or gas, but dead wood is the only thing that we ever tried that truly worked well and you have to have alot of wood to pile on him. It would be cheaper to hire or rent equipment to bury him, which is the way we went on the rare occasion an animal died before entering the show ring. Some people say "its just an animal," but when your around them enough to know what their personality is like you hate to see them go.

Talk to a/your accountant but you should be able to take it off your income taxes, as a lot of relief rules go into effect in situations like this after natural disasters.
