The Rio sons and daughters both are exceptionally well proportioned until they get past that "yearling" stage at about 15-18 months, then tend to be slightly leggy, but not enough to turn you off. I don't know what the cows will look like because the oldest we have are 18 months.Andy wrote:99 is on my list also, he looks like a good bull. Do very many of your rio Blancos have a lot of leg? The ones we have here are very deep and wide.
All the bulls we had on test this past year were in the 6-7 frame score range and wide and deep. There was one that frame scored a 7.5 but out of a big tall cow.
Rio has been a joy to have around, every time I drive past him I have to get out of the truck and scratch his back or he'll stand there until I come back through. I have never seen a more gentle bull. His calves have good dispositions also. Good luck tomorrow! My wife has informed me that I'm NOT going to be bidding.
