Monday Morning Photo: Auctioneering for Exclusive Genetics

My family has been in the auction business for years and I have spent quite a few years as a auctioneer. My passion has always been working with livestock so I headed in that direction and left the auctioneering behind. I really liked selling and have been trying to figure out how to get to auctioneering a little again. I keep finding when you desire something it will manifest itself.

I got asked to do the auctioneering for Exclusive Genetics during the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo and am having lots of fun doing it.

My wife, Tammy, qualified our bull, Sangre De Toro, in the top 25 for Exclusive Genetics Million Dollar Futurity in Las Vegas during the WNFR.

For most people when the daughter gets engaged, they end up with grand children.  We ended up with a bucking bull.

Tammy has done great with him and the Exclusive Genetics experience has been great.  If you have some extra cash and are interested in having a bucking bull it is a good way to do it.

As you can see in the photo I need to keep working on the fashion thing (Lori Darlin).  I think she is practicing Yoga even when flanking a bull, but it looks to me like she should relax and breath.

I will have the winning photo and picture of the big check in December.
