Today Kevin, HD and I went to the Steele Livestock Sale in Messena, IA. HD was so interested! He only had an hour nap on the way there instead of his usual two hour nap, so I thought we probably wouldn’t be staying very long. But as soon as the sale started and they brought out the first bull, HD just sat on his daddy’s lap and stared. I bet he sat there without moving for about 30 minutes. He just sat and watched. We ended up buying his birthday present there. A heifer! I never, in my wildest dreams (before I met Kevin), thought that I would ever give my kid a cow for his/her birthday, but that’s what he got! HD even started raising his hand like he was bidding. Luckily he didn’t have a bidder number! I think that Kevin has a new cattle sale buddy!
