    Got to boast on my grandkids

    This past weekend, both of my grandkids had advanced to the Fort Worth Stockyard animal judging. Seth placed second in class 3 polled hereford division with his calf. This calf was from artificial insemination that came from a highly ranked bull. Although my grandaughter didnt place with her lamb...she did win the calf scramble and a 500 dollar check as well as the chance to participate in the final.... and chance to win 216,000 in scholarship funds.


    Only negative....my son in law had his exhaust system stolen off his 2012 dodge cummins at the Marriot.....cost 5000.00 to replace. There were 17 other trucks that had this done to'em as well.

    Great job, by some great kids! Congrats to them! And you should be boasting, and busting buttons, rgd!

    Sorry about the Dodge thieves. My mom's husband was in FTW a few weeks ago. He had taken his grandkids to the mall to go shopping. Came out an hour later, and their Dodge truck was gone! Yep, entire truck stolen! I could learn to dislike most humans, given the things they do.
    If man had enough horse sense to treat his wife like a Thoroughbred, she'd never grow into an old nag.

    If you climb in the saddle, be ready for the ride!

    Congrats on the grandiose!

    If a truck ain't safe in Texas, then ain't nothing sacred.

    Not to hijack the thread, but the components on a modern diesel truck exhaust system is super expensive to replace. Upwards of $4-5k, maybe more....

    Congratulations on the grandkids, rgd. It does feel good to see them do well.

    There are two large Dodge dealers in this area who periodically have exhaust systems stolen from trucks sitting in their lots. The thieves just unbolt them and carry them away. Bastards.

    Yeah... It cost right at 5000.00 to replace but luckily he had a 500 deductible. Son in law found out that these exhaust systems are only held on with 4-6 bolts. So anyone with a cordless impact can have one off in a minute or two. He had them spot weld the bolts on to hopefully make thieves move on to the next target. .... Of course, there are cordless 4.5 in grinders now.

    They hit some of our trucks at work last year, just cut the cat's out with cordless sawzall's-got about 15 of them IIRC. Of course they are usually steeling the copper cable also...
