Exciting Buckin' Bull News

I can't believe I haven't told y'all the big news. I wanted to but I also wanted to wait until it was a done deal. I am superstitious about saying stuff and jinxing the outcome. But the contract has been signed and the check cashed so here's the news.

We sold half interest in Stubby!

After he won 2nd at the bull futurity, we had a guy in Colorado inquire about him. He asked if he could buy half interest. The husband discussed what we wanted for him and the requirements we would have and he accepted them!

Some of the stipulations are: we keep possession of Stubby, care for him and haul him. The partner pays for his futurity entry fees. This is a good thing cause those entry fees can be EXPENSIVE!

So what does this mean for us? Well, now we can enter Stubby in ABBI/NBBA futurities. If he places, then we get to take him to the finals in VEGAS! They are held during the PBR finals. We are so excited.
His next futurity is on June 13th. Then another on July 11th. Keep your fingers crossed for us!

Ok, dumb question, Stubby is a bucking bull, I take it? I have watched PBR...If they are really good, then the bull is in higher demand for breeding, right? And that's where the $ is:)
