Today Richard and I helped out at the big Pharo Bull Evaluation event on Weston Walker’s farm just a few miles from here.

Kit getting a closer look as they evaluated and scored 137 bulls for fleshing ability, thickness, muscling, masculinity and disposition.

It was just a little cool, but no wind, rain or snow, so it was a really nice winter day to work cattle.
