Main thread with details already posted, AUG 1st ID cow.

@carpsniperg2  Did you put a band aid on the wound for her?

It's a tag  :chuckle:

Not my bull...was in close proximity chasing after him and a few other bulls helping my buddy with his western wa general archery. Unfortunately my buddy didn't seal the deal but a youngster under 18 did with his dad right there wit him. Got to watch this beast take his last few breaths while the father and son cheered and hugged next to him it was a great day

You're blind.  That's a horse's head with horns.

Beautiful, RClare!
