Just make sure you can drive all those horsepower! This is my stock engine (377 WHP) against a Vette on a 150 shot. First lesson is always free. https://youtu.be/dglKSJ28bVM

I gave it everything I had. I'd give up some of the bruising and broken bones. Honestly, I went a whole lot further with it, then anybody thought I would, including myself. It's not that I don't know that I'm the best, I just can't afford to prove that ... more »

I've hung up my spurs before the first event of 2021. With no financial backing, I can't realize my dream, so I've decided that being a couple months shy of 52, it's time to retire. Was going to spend $10,000 to win a $300 buckle that really wasn't going ... more »

And Holsteins are very good natured. Anything with “Spots” be extremely wary of.

The only way to get them "Socialized" as you call it, is to get them as baby calfs and bottle feed them. They'll eventually trust you to a point, because they know you bring the feed and water. But if somebody else comes along they'll go berserk. Basically, ... more »

He probably would barely jump and kick. All bulls aren’t created equal. This guy is 2000 pounds and a half brother to Airtime. He knocked me unconscious and dislocated my femur out of my hip.

He’s waaay to old to get cut. If you don’t be put females in with him, he’ll jump and tear down every fence you’ve got to get at cows.

This guy was my pride and joy, Neon Ghost. Incredible Bucking Bull Blood Lines. His Dam came from Wofman and his Sire was Griz' Ghost.

You're not going to want to breed those heifers until they are a long two.

Sorry, also they are herd animals, Bill needs a friend. He'll get very despondent without another bovine. From what you describe his mannerism, he was probably a "Bottle Baby". Meaning something happened to his Momma and he was hand fed by humans. We ... more »

Get him some good, 12% sweet feed and some range cubes to supplement his protein. Brahman are "Heat Resistant", probably why they're so popular in Florida. The American Bucking Bull is a Brahman/Longhorn X, bred back a few hundred times. Oh yeah and ... more »

That's a good looking Brahmer, can I put the boots to him?

Those things are so much fun. I had one back in the day with the Calamari Racing catalog thrown at it. Would take it to the local Kart track.

I’m seeing some damn good racing. Four or five guys with a real shot. It’s so much more fun than, McGrath, Carmichael, Stewart, or anybody else checking out. Hi Semen D. Bauer.

It's looking like I hit critical mass, RHR topped out at 77 BPM and has now dropped to 74 BPM. Hopefully, that's a sign that I'm getting acclimated. Been drinking 1 1/2 gallons of water a day to get my hydration level back up to 59%.

I’m just thinking at 3 weeks in, it shouldn’t still be climbing. I understand the whys, what’s, and how’s, it’s the timeframe I’m concerned with. Then again, I’m probably monitoring my data too much.

I'm starting to get concerned that I've got COVID. RHR has climbed 12 BPM in the last five days, Heart Rate Variability has gone from 28 milliseconds to 14 milliseconds in the same five days and gone from 13 breaths per minute to 15.

Gary, I make some money doing this, but unfortunately it's like gambling. So, I can't really depend on it to pay the bills. I've got a couple of side hustles and I work in the car business to make money when I've got a need. Used to be a Sales Manager, ... more »
