What a surprise we got when we got our calves to the sale barn today. They told us when we unloaded that our brand was expired. Hubby and I looked at each other like how in the heck :???: :???: :mad: :mad: As the story goes, when we moved here two years ago, we sold calves a few days later and stopped by the brand inspector office to ask if we can leave our change of address with him. And he said yes, well seein' how he was so friendly we took him at his word. I also told him to tell Steve , the head of the Ne. brand board howdy, since he and I used to go to the same church when we were growing up. Now 2 years later that same brand inspector told us today that he didn't send that in, why didn't he just give us the info, so we could have done it ourselves. Any one else got a story on their brand inspector? He's kinda of like inspector gadget. :mad: :mad: :p :lol: 8)

Yeah I can match that..
Two weeks ago I took in some cows and bulls to sell. We loaded them up way before sunlight and I dropped Carter off at the high school and took them to the barn to unload. Got the guy, I didn't want to unload them with out someone from the barn being there. So we unloaded them, I gave him the shippers agreement. He looks at it and says you are one cow long on your agreement. You need to get another agreement for the one cow. Not being one to argue I say ok. Thinking that Roscoe had made a mistake. Get home tell my hubby the deal. He chews me out for not arguing with the guy, calls the salebarn and tells them that he has fed the cows all summer and is aware of the number that apparently someone can't count to five. Brand inspector calls and tells us that yes the shippers agreement is correct.
Everytime we try and do buisness there it is a headache. I told number 1 man that I would just as soon go elsewhere and he agreed.

Well baling wire, I was too p****d when we realized, that he hadn't done his job right. If he has a name it must be, "MUD!!!!" :mad: :mad: :p

Or as bugs bunny says it, " MUD spelt backwards is DUM"

Another terrible thought, a STUD can turn to DUST pretty easy, too. Sorry, just had to throw that into the pot. :wink: :)
