    Well, if Cowboy is a Carolina fan, he could always call him "Roho", cause I figure he will be used for stud. But, that would give him a chicken complex and really confuse him when he walks by Chick-Fil-A! I'll leave it to you pros.

    Has merit......that's Ought
    The Lab is named Gunner, althought his real name starts with a gadammit....so offical names and nick-names, will differ slightly.

    Ok, CBS, how about a bull with his own theme song? Maybe good ol' Wtrfwlr has "Woolly Bully" by Sam the Sham and the Pharos on his oldie goldie juke box.

    Keeping him for breeding stock Cowboy?
    Wouldn't name him at all if you are gonna eat him. Unless you and the family can handle "we're having Spot for supper tonight".
    Aught is right if you are talking about zeros. 00 = double aught.

    Yes, he will be our herd sire, plan is to keep him where we can handle him. He likes honey buns alot, is halter broke and leads readily so far. Trailered great too, much better than a horse. Not sure if his demeanor will change with age. This is my first rodeo, any tips are welcome.

    I know a gal that has stock and she names everything, cows, pigs, goats, heck even her chickens and ducks. She slaughters and butchers them herself and just writes the name right on the package when it goes in the freezer!

    If you and the family can handle it, that's fine. LOL.
    We could never tell our chickens apart so naming them was never an option.

    We have had many longhorn bulls, Dad uses them for team roping practice but after they get to big to work through the shoot any more we get them ground into hamburger. And all the steak cuts are ground into hamburger as well, after they been chased up and down the arena thousands of times the steaks are pretty tough but they make some dang good burger with all the steak cuts in there... Oh and don't forget to save the rocky mountain oysters...

    Dad usually gives the long horns a nickname since he practices roping them a bunch, we had one nicknamed Donald because he was all black except it looked like he had a orange toupee on (Donald Trump) and he just hauled off the last of our long horns since we are moving. One of them was nicknamed Voodoo, he was a mix of long horn and a Mexican breed that I can't remember, he looked mean as a rattler without tipped horns but he would try to jump fences to get away from you.

    *edit
    I was listening to this song and thought you would like it Cowboy (if you haven't heard it before), it's one of my favorite Chris LeDoux songs http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CAECITidCKs

    I gave it a listen. Hadn't heard that one, not a big Chris LeDoux fan. I like the lyrics on this one. Thanks for posting!

    Just so noone gets any bright idea's about this being easy...My Bull (Still No Name) learned real quick how to toss my 12' gate up in the air. I have been out in the rain the better part of the afternoon, he don't like the tempory pasture w/out grass even w/ hay and feed. He seems well enough now that he has a pasture w/grass, thank goodness it was Labor Day today. Got the new fence finished and washed 1 of the horses. Something tells me Bulls are smarter and more take more patience than horses....

    Ya, you got to put your gate l hinges facing each other lol, we learned that lesson too. And the time we left the gate open we spent 3 months hunting them down out on the mine country. It always seemed like people would see them and call us at 3 in the morning. Dad was about 1 week away from going out with the rifle and dropping them but they ended up getting in a old farmers empty feed lot next to another lot full of cattle and he saw them and closed the gate. Lets just say they got ran hard through the roping arena after we got em back and dad and his buddy didn't take it easy stretching them out when they roped them...
