Merry Christmas!  I can’t believe it is almost Christmas time!  Wasn’t it just yesterday I was unloading the trailer from the state fair??

Anyway, I would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. Please take time to enjoy family and friends and enjoy all the spoils of the holidays.  Sometimes it is easy to get lost in the shopping, spending and bustle but take time to spread some joy to those that may need an extra smile.   I think caring for livestock gives us the added advantage of seeing new life being born, life being taken away, and the fragility of tomorrow.   Country folks just know that Christmas time is a special time of year even without the shopping and gifts.

To all my red angus friends, old and new – Merry Christmas and may the holiday bring you happiness and joy!
