    So my Mom won a trip to Hawaii, They were gone for a week and got back yesterday. After looking at some of my parents pictures I couldn't help but stop at these couple. Take a Look.

    So these pictures are taken of a huge field full of these Angus Bulls, No Cows in site just the red and black bulls. Where this picture was taken was up a mountain 3,500 feet up.

    So these are 2 of these unreal bulls:

    Another bull injoying the shade:

    And these are the pits that these bulls were digging in the field, some of these wholes are 3 feet deep:

    Those are not Angus, at least not purebreds. Notice the ears and the horns? Could be Brangus.

    That's true. I didn't notice the horns at first. I think that red bull in the back in the top picture may be a Santa Gertrudis cross.

    Still very nice bulls.

    I noticed the horns before as well, but the ears I have seen some angus around here with the ears like that. The horns are what get me, I don't know what other breed they would be unless they are just crosses. But I think They must be pure of some sort for someone to be raising them on ranches like they were, they are for some purpose anyways. I probably will never know for sure.

    Many ranchers use crossbreds, but Brangus are a recognized breed.

    I know about the Brangus, they just don't seem to look Brangus, Well I have no idea what breed, but they sure are nice and big!

    The black one is probably full Angus, we've had a few purebred Angus bulls that had scurs that don't get any bidder than in the picture. The red one may have a little Brahma in him but the black doesn't look like it.

    tinknal, brangus they are. Definitely have a lot of ear, and the dewlap is a giveaway. GOOD EYE! Nothing wrong with a brangus, they do real well in the humid heat, which is what I would expect in Hawaii.

    Maybe a bit humid, but I don't think it ever gets hot in Hawaii. When I lived there it never got above about 75 or so. Slept in a building that had neither cooling nor heat, open around the ceiling for l8 inches or so, just screen.

    Impressive indeed. That's probably on the big Island of Hawaii (or How-R-ya as my granny used to pronounce it -South Georgia) :)

    There alot of Hawaii cowboys on the Big Island. (Oahu is just a tourist trap) Talk about the life though. The Beach, beautiful weather year round, and a cattle ranch to boot. Can't beat that :angel:
