Wondering how to survive the economic crises and still want to ride? Well why not a Steer? Steers are economically friendly there is no freshness when you ride them, they rarely spook, they don't need there feet done, they eat a lot less than horses, no bit needed, they only need one shot and de-wormed once a year, they are easy on pasture and they WILL get you noticed. The total cost for a steer to keep is around $50 a year (not including hay)
I am offering my Steer Buddy for sale he is a 13month old Reg. Steer. As a weaned calf he won many championships in the halter class and reserve champion bull (when he was a bull) he is now steered. He loads, baths, clips, does not spook easily, does not bolt, kids can lead him, he was shown by a 10year old, he's currently 1200 pounds and should mature to #1700-2000pounds he will STILL eat less than any 14hand horse! I have taken him to fairs around the state. He is started under saddle and is going great! I am putting this ad to sell him after I put 45-60days on him he will be going on trails before he leaves to his new home. HE IS AN AWESOME looking steer he is thick and has muscle. Buddy has been pastured with mini horses, big horses and other cattle, He is good in electric two strand wire(or one as long as its on), wood fence, field fence, and barb wire.
I am currently training Buddy in Western but I'm sure Buddy will also ride English.
I am SELLING BUDDY for $3000 with some more training or you can buy him now with just started under saddle for $2700 . I will also take a $500 deposit and hold him here for 30days+
THIS IS VERY REASONABLE FOR A RIDING STEER, THE CHEAPEST ONE I FOUND WAS $6000.
Buddy has not offered to buck, I bought him for 4-H and I got bored and found out he was easier to start and ride than my horses. I don't want to sell him at the auction to go to the slaughter house.
BUDDY CAN ONLY GO TO A GREAT HOME! PICTURES AND DESCRIPTION WOULD BE NEEDED BEFORE BUDDY IS PLACED, ALSO BOARDING STABLES WILL BOARD CATTLE FOR A LOT LESS THAN THEY BOARD HORSES. Buddy's price is negotiable to a great home.
