The bull had other things on his mind.

yes, that’s my name. what’s the big deal?

You know, I can’t say that I’ve ever heard of anyone named “Diablo”. Lots of “Jesus’s”, but no “Diablos”. Except the one, of course.

Ok all, basic bovine identification 101.
Calf refers to a young bovine normally less then one year old.
Cow refers to a mature female bovine who has had a calf, prior to that she is referred to as a heifer if over a year old.
A bull is an “intact” mature male bovine.
A steer is a castrated bull.
By all appearances this (Diablo?) is a steer but Mike would likely have had a better view to tell for sure.
Nice pic by the way.

Oh yeah… the mountain in the background…. I see.
That’s “Mount Diablo”. Now I get it. Of course it would be more easily understood if it said “Mount” or simply “Mt.” before “Diablo”
That would help those of us who suffer from Mis~Understanding Syndrome (MUS)…..well… unless Sick of It’s big ol’ bull was in the picture with the cow & then a whole new misunderstanding would probably result from the addition of “Mount” like it was an instruction or something.

Nice picture tho!

Does Franklin take photos professionally? I need to hire a photographer for an upcoming charitable event.

I don’t see Franklin Ridge listed in the Yellow Pages.

Nope, neither does Mike.
