Bar G Kulow, WWAFP2792

Bar G Kulow is a rising star in the watusi world being utilized by Bar G Ranch, Duane and Kolene Gilbert, of Castle Dale, Utah.

Bar_G_Kulow

Kulow was sired by the well known TW Booger and out of ENE Lovely Lady which combines old breeding programs from across the nation.    This combination of bloodlines produces lots of color and horn as is evident by his offspring.

Sheri Gurr and her husband Randy are relatively new in the world of watusi, but have jumped in with both feet.  They have added many new faces to their farm Randy Gurr Watusi in Utah.  http://www.rockingGwatusi.com

Then there is Mojo, Sheri’s steer.  Steers make wonderful ambassadors, pasture ornaments, conversation pieces and best friends.

2016 Spring Fling Get Together

It is Spring again.  For some of us the grass is starting to green up and we ar getting ready for those new calves.  With Spring comes the Lolli Bros. Exotic Animal Sale in Macon, Missouri,   www.lollibros.com.   Watusi will sell on Thursday, April 7 and we will be having a social at 7:00p. m. CST Wednesday, April 6, 2016 in the conference room at the Comfort Inn Macon, Missouri.  Besides food and watusi talk we will hold our Fun Auction of a variety of donated items, the proceeds from which help fund the Association.   Sneak peek at auction items…coming from Texas. This is a professionally prepared Watusi skull. Not a big one, but at least a good starter kit!

These are a few of the other miscellaneous items offered.  From Kentucky…

Please check around your barn and house to see if there is anything you would like to donate.  All items are appreciated.

Steers are beautiful as well

We all know that most animals produce around an equal number of males and females over time.  Because in breeding situations the number of males needed is exponentially less than females one solution is to steer some of those extra males.

Will Ross of Ross Ranch Horns in Brownsboro, Texas rossranchhorns.com submitted to us this information on his young steer, BWS Old Red.  This is a four year old steer with phenomenal growth and bloodlines.  Talk about a pasture ornament.

Another member lost

 

From Angie Base:  February 16, 2016

We lost one of our WWA members Friday to cancer. Barbara Britton whose husband was Wayne until his passing a few years ago, lost her battle. She fought long and hard and kept her Watusi until the end. Others helped her feed and such, but she always said she wouldn’t part with them until she died. It was important to her, not only because she enjoyed them so much, but also because they had meant so much to her dear husband, Wayne. She promised him she would keep them in his honor and she kept her promises. Barb was a very dedicated and extremely hard working lady who even kept showing her Watusi at the shows when she had to do it all herself and then after Wayne passed. The last few years she had to stop traveling as her cancer was making it an impossibility for her, even with help from others and her family. She promoted the breed all through the years with dignity and conviction and we will miss her. A fond farewell.
