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.
