Bull Run or the Samurai Express

31 May

Akaushi bulls t

We decided to try a new breed of cattle to crossbreed with our Angus and black baldie heifers. These Japanese-origin Akaushi bulls were located in Muleshoe, Texas (northwest). Pat, Sharon, Tiarnan and Rhen made a run to Texas to pick up them up. We stopped in Denver and Mosquero, New Mexico on the trip down. Our friends Jack and Tuda Crews have a wonderful bed and breakfast, The Rectory, in Mosquero. We were able to visit with them before heading on to Muleshoe. After loading the bulls, we made a 14-hour run home. The boys were troopers all the way! We unloaded in the dark.

    Mosquero, New Mexico – what an amazing looking place. the Ute Creek Cattle company looks like they’re doing some really good work on the land.

      Pat took that with his cell phone.
      It’s northwest of Roy, New Mexico.
