Our Weekend Goin' Ons

Saturday was a busy day for us.  We got up early and headed to East Texas, Nacogdoches, to be exact.  There was a bull futurity that morning and the husband had told a few people we would come watch their bulls.  So off we went.  I took my camera in hopes of gettin' in a few pictures.  I always like to practice action shots.  It's a lot more tricky when you don't have a flash in the low light conditions of a covered arena.  Here are a few shots that I got.  Some are blurry. :o(



Unfortunately, our friends' bulls didn't fare very well in the competition.  Everyone has their off days, we sure know that.

On a positive note, we sold half interest in six of our yearling bulls!!  That's pretty exciting.  We needed it.  So next year should be pretty busy taking them to competitions, we hope!

Sunday we took the dogs out to the tank.  It's been so hot here.  The dogs really enjoy cooling off in the water.  Even Lucky Dog got in!!


Lucky has never gotten in the water.  We've tried coaxing him in before.  I could tell he was seriously thinkin' about it this time.  He finally decided Diesel shouldn't have all the fun.  I was worried Diesel may grab his lead rope and drown him.  But he was on his best behavior.  Lucky survived.

Congrats on the 1/2 interest sale! Glad to see Lucky made it in and out of the tank with no harm. LOL

I loved the video, and congrats on the 1/2 sale! :)
And those doggies? They look like they're having the time of their lives! Even Lucky!

There are some fine shots there. That last bull looks like he is going to be tough to ride with that twist at the top of his "hoofstand".
Do you have any older bulls bucking on the circuit yet?
Lucky dog probably just found a favorite summer pastime!

Hot fun in the summertime :-)

The bull pictures are so cool -- and it does take some practice getting those action pictures! So you have the heat --- we have had the stormy rainy tornado weather which is a bit out of the ordinary for us here in Northern Minnesota.

Great shots! they are amazing .The boys here are feeling the heat , but Winston is the only one who will get in the water (sometimes the horses trough if I am not careful ) Poor Skeeter dosen't seem to get the idea about cooling down in the water

Summer swimming, we're swimming up here too but it's cause of the flooding. Sooooooo much rain, it's almost unbelievable on the dry flat prairie.

A day out, a successful sale and a sprinkle of fun, sounds like the perfect weekend.

You got great pics! Love the dogs in the tank. And I chuckled about Diesel potentially drowning Lucky dog. Glad to hear all canines are accounted for.

I love Diesel! He's funny!

You did a great job on your photo's essipicaly since the conditions weren't ideal.

It's been nice and hot up here too, a little dip in the pond doesn't sound like a bad idea
