Yesterday our steers came. It sure looks good to have something out in the pasture again. We haven't had horses since 2004. We love to eat beef, and with all the stuff they inject in the animals now (hormones and who knows what else) we thought this would be a healthier way to go. Plus we had the empty pasture.
My 13 year-old daughter named them. she said since we are going to eat them she wanted to come up with names she did not like. She knew immediately she wanted to name one Alex. She is a Pittsburgh Penguins fan and hates the Washington Capitals and Alex Ovechkin (I do not know how to spell that). The other one was a bit more difficult to name. She finally came up with Stan. At Wyldlife camp this summer there was a silly skit at lunch each day. One of the guys would always say to Stan, "I'll kill ya Stan."
Here is Alex looking at you.
