Today we had a nice run of hay. The market was mostly steady today. The grass sold steady to weaker with a good volume of grass in the offering. The buyers were active but maybe not as aggressive as in previous sales.

*NOTE our 1st Monday auction for the season will be Monday Nov 7.

A cowboy rode into town & stopped at a saloon for a drink. Unfortunately, the locals had a habit of picking on strangers. When he finished his drink, he found his horse had been stolen. He went back inside flipped his gun, caught it above his head & fired. “Which one of you stole my horse?! I’m going to have another beer & if my horse ain’t back outside by the time I’m finished I’m going to do what I dun in Texas & I don’t like to do what I dun in Texas!” True to his word after his beer he went outside, & his horse was returned. As he was riding away the bartender ran out & asked, “What happened in Texas?” The cowboy turned back and said... “I had to walk home.”
