Those are great for sure. im not sure what the laws are for "exotics" here. I need to research on that. The existence of game farms and escapees in the environment makes me think - must be regulated

Unless you have a specific reason for the goat, one of the imported sheep are a better fit in the "horn" department.  The Mouflon are pretty common, and I even have some just south of here that have gone feral that escaped from a game farm.

Does anyone remember the character whose side-kick rode a longhorn steer?  I'm drawing a blank here, but I can see the saddle broke steer clear as day.

Mongo on Blazing Saddles rode a long horn... pass the beans

Mongo rode a Brahma bull, but that's a remarkable feat of rememberin' ya got there, pard.  The more I recall, the long-horn rider was from a comic book series, I believe.



Mongo only pawn in game of life!

I'm trying to find a goat that grows big horns. There's a number of suitable breeds from Caucasus region, even Switzerland. Just can't seem to run one down.

I never said I didn't like it, only that it has a taste similar to French toast.  :cheers:

While I really like the costumes and the locale they shoot the episodes in the rest of it has left me behind.  Just can't get interested in.

Still not sure I'll end up with it yet, I'm not going to rush into anything. I like a 7 year warranty on the new Mahindra. A lot of controversy on their value at

In my stick of the woods it is difficult to sell a used Asian tractor of any make except JD and Kubota.  I used a Korean built tractor (a LS) last month and found it to be really well built and easy to maintain.  It was built to use skid steer attachments and had a good warranty.  It was about 32 hp and perfect for pulling a small brush hog and spraying weeds with a 200 gallon tank sprayer.  The dealer who let me try it out has not sold one of them at $16,000 new.  If resale is an issue you go with the JD or Kubota, at least around here.
