And the Husband Speaks! Part 1

I've had the whip out, making the husband answer those questions.  I'd email him new ones as they came in.  I just told him I needed to add a few more.  He asked if they were ever gonna stop.  At first, he was saying no one would ask anything.  Now he can't believe how many came in!  I told him "HELLO, my blogger peeps are awesome!"  So here we go....


Lisa asked... 
"How is the wife's longhorn doing?"
The wife's longhorns (yes, more than one) are doing good.  They are at the lease place.


Prairie Mother asked...
"What kind of snake was it?  And has it returned for revenge?  Have you began to work on your defensive tactics?"
It was a black one, not sure what kind.  The only good kind is a dead one.  I did see it again.  It was headed from the yard to the pasture.  I grabbed a shovel and tried to catch it but it got away.  I'm hoping Pepper, my JRT, will corner it again and this time I'll kill it!


Wife here, maybe the third time will be the charm...hahaha!


"About how many cattle do you have?  How much land does your cattle run on?"  
We have about 50 head, not counting calves on about 550 acres.


Never Say Never Greyhounds asked...
"Why is Husband afraid of snakes?"
Don't know why but do know that I am and always have been deathly afraid of them.


"What does he like in Mojo?"
He is the coolest looking bull I've ever raised plus he has the right attitude (sometimes too much).  He's the complete package.  When he bucked, he kicked and leaped in the air and spun.  He's an athlete.  He just stands out when we take him to buck.  He seems to be doing better but it will take a long time to heal.  I'm hoping next year I can put him on some hiefers.


Dee asked...
"What is the wife's most annoying quality?"
She has none, she is perfect, well almost.  I guess it annoys me when she does laundry (which is normally my job) and doesn't empty the lint trap from the dryer.  Oh wait, thought of another one, her lack of confidence in herself.  She's freakin' awesome and I tell her but she doesn't listen.


"Has she ever done or said something to embarrass you?
I can't remember her embarrassing me.


Wife here, see he's been hit in the head one too many times so he can't remember real well.  That's good for me.  :o)


"What is y'all's song?"
I claim it to be "When he rattles his glass, she jumps up fast" but everyone knows that's not true.  I guess it would be Travis Tritts' "More Than You'll Ever Know."


Wife here,  he didn't have a clue.  I had to tell him our song!  Geez louise!


Paige asked...
"What made you pick the wife to be the wife?"
Of course, her good looks (yeah, she's always been hot and sexy).  Also, she was very mature, smart and a very hard worker (always had a job).  She didn't want to just get married and have kids.  She had goals and achieved them.  She accepted my bullriding and wild and crazy way of life.  She never tried to change me (even when I needed it).  She wasn't a girlie girl, she liked hanging out with my friends and they liked her (she was just one of the guys).  And did I mention very good looking.


Wife here, let me reiterate, I always had a job.  Very important for a bullrider's girlfriend!!


City Girl Turned Country Girl asked...
"Do you ever get nervous that your wrangler behind might become the topic/picture showcase of your wife's blog?"
I'm not one bit shy.  It don't bother me at all.


Nikker asked...
"How did you get into raising rough stock?"
Got too crippled to ride so raising them is the next best thing.  


"What if any blood lines do you concentrate on?"
Wilfong-Bailey-Plummer


"How is the Dr Pepper job going?"
It's a job.  I really miss owning my own company (wish I never sold it).  I didn't have to worry about politics or dumba$$ bosses.


Prairierunner asked...
"What was your favorite rodeo to enter....back in the old days?"
I mainly went to bullridings.  Not sure I have a favorite.  Georgetown, Texas was always good to me.  In fact, it's the only place that I've never bucked off at.  I won a bullriding there, rode my bull at a PRCA rodeo there and rode at all the open bullridings held there.


Wife here, stay tuned.  We have more to come.

Gail said...

What a good sport! I see why you kept him.

CCC said...

You know how you get to be a bull rider? It has something to do with a mouth full of marbles and spitting them out everytime you get in a wreck and when you've lost all your marbles then . . . you're officially a bull rider. Just teasing.

OH My God!! That is too sweet. I wonder if The Hunter would be so willing to answer questions.

If you asked him my annoying habits it would take everyone an hour to read.

Thanks for answering. I like these Q & As with the spouse behind the blogger.

Thanks for answering our questions! Love reading them! Did a little research on the stock lines...not quite as easy as looking them up with horses! So is Mojo from the Voodoo Kid line?
