Taking a second to catch my breath after another week of daily trips up to see Dad, (He's doing well, and hopefully will be home in another week) and watching events at our annual Red Bluff Bull & Gelding Sale.
Lots of good working dogs this year. I sorta keep an eye out for what I like in a working dog, and after watching them in the trials, my favorite was Crazy 8 Twit (bred & consigned by Mason Winebarger of Post, Oregon). Twit ended up being the Champion high point dog, and sold for $14,500. A tad beyond my budget.
GS Farrah, topped the sale at $20,000 the second highest amount ever paid for a dog at the sale.

The geldings did well. "Walter" was the top selling horse at $39,000. Rumor has it that "Walter" is going to a ranch in Hawaii...
I didn't get to watch the bulls sale, but I understand they all did well, too.
Much to see at the trade show, and art show. North Valley Hat Co was there, Yay! Met some lady vendors that were a real hoot. Lots of shared laughter.

So many friends to catch up with that I sometimes only get to see once a year.
