"Why Don't He Write..."

Okay, today's title is a great line from a movie ... anyone know what movie it is from? But, the bigger question is where have I been. For quite awhile now I have been blogging six days a week. In fact I have even come up with posts to put up while I was gone on mission trips and other youth related things. But, for the past month or so blogging has been pretty tough because of all of our projects and farm work. I guess it finally caught up with me and now it has been almost a week since I have posted. But, I have a reason...

We have been on the road for the past few days taking in a wedding and heading all the way to Virginia to go bull shopping. I figured that since we were in the area (well, it was 9 hours from where the wedding was) we might as well go and pick up a nice Dexter bull. Our travels took us to Olde Towne Farm in Virginia and to Tama Sundance (the picture above is from the Olde Towne Farm website because I forgot my camera cord).

Sundance is a great looking bull that we think will add a lot to our herd in years to come and we are excited to see some calves! Hopefully now I can pick-up the blogging again, because there sure is a lot that I need to catch up on.

That's from 'Dances with Wolves' isn't it?

Yes, I think the mule skinner said that.

Not the mule skinner (you might be thinking of little bigman) it was the wagon driver talking about the bones on the prairie with arrows stuck through them... :) a good one...

I believe you will find that the mule skinner and the 'wagon driver' are one and the same.

Wow! Life on the farm! Love it! I'll keep checking back to enjoy your stories and learn a thing or two!

I'm impressed Ethan.
He looks to be a very good, beefy Dexter. I've seen a couple other pictures of him in the past and he has quite a rear too!
Do you have open cows for him to start breeding now or did you still have the bull that you picked up after yours died?

Yes, that's right. Indeed, I don't think the term would be "wagon driver", would it? Teamster would be correct though, as originally Teamster meant a man who drove a team of horses or mules. In the film, the team was made up of mules.
