Yes and the hood scoop is functional, it's been tweaked to over 300 H.P., Roush, limited edition. Note the side pipes, they are harder to see than the chrome kind.

Nice car. Nice Garage shop in the barn. Every man needs a barn for his "stuff". That's some really nice pasture. Any horses, besides the ones under the hood? Joe

No, we only have Black Angus cattle at the present. The last horse we had, Dad sold because he said it was the only horse, he'd ever seen that had to be broke every time we rode it!:D

Are you sure it was in fact a horse and not some chibicabra,horse hybrid? ATV's are more practical anyways.

I like working with Angus better than some of the dairy breeds. Some of the bulls can be pretty angry at the world. Angus are sure better eating too. Joe

No, lol Joe it was a registered Quarter horse and is fine now as the guy that bought him rides him everyday.
I've always wondered the same about beef cattle and dairy cattle bulls. Why the dairy ones are so much more aggressive. Beef bulls are very docile and a dairy bull is very unpredictable. You'd think it would be the other way around. There was a little Jersey bull that used to get out of his pasture down the road and he was aggressive to humans.That's one reason that the dairy farmers have gone to artificial insemination.

Beautiful ride, Jill! :thumbup:

My daughter is also allowed to drive anything we own. She knows that if she screws up by doing something stupid, it's not only ME she has to answer to - it's our insurance agent! LOL!

I have become a big Mustang fan over the past 8 years (never really appreciated them before; we were too caught up with over-priced exotics) Now I belong to several local area Mustang clubs and one of my "summer" toys is a minty '89 Cobra 5.0 GT rag. (It's a Canadian car so the "Cobra" designation means nothing. It was just added to differentiate them from the "plain" US GT's.)

Jersey bulls have probably the worst reputation and even seem to develop the aggression younger than some of the other breeds. If someone is letting a jersey bull break free they are NOT being good neighbors. They can be seriously dangerous.

Funnily enough the ones raised around people, and with the most contact seem to be the worst of all. They don't learn to be afraid of people when they are young as they would with the herd.

It wasn't all that uncommon to hear about people getting hurt really bad, some killed by bulls. People who should know better. The problem that signifies is they are unpredictable, as you said, to even people who should know better.

A I isn't the answer to all your problems. Most owners with medium or larger herds keep a bull or two even if they AI. They are better heat detectors than humans. :) If you have a bull that's gotten aggressive with you, best thing is to get rid of him. He WILL do it again, as it means he's lost fear of you.

I learned to respect big Sows on pig farms even more. If you don't know what you are doing , stay away! They are quicker than bulls, or any cows or horses to smell fear and will take advantage of it

I can do without Hogs. I don't eat much pork anymore, though a really good ham is difficult to turn down. Joe

Magnificent car. The closest we get to raw power is the Chev SS. Many of the wannabe brands and factory specials are available to show $$$$$$ but boring.

My friend is trying to insure and licence an AC Cobra here but not succeeding. So it maxes @ 50mph, on a trailer behind his combi.
