Geting the bulls on video for the sale this year proved to be quite a challenge. The crew overcame frigid temps, freezing cameras, the flu and got to build the biggest video fort ever at Felton Angus Ranch. You know what they say about men and their toys…….well get a load of what happens when a rancher builds a fort.
Let’s back up in the story a bit………
The crew arrived bright and early on our first scheduled day to film bulls (pre-fort). The bulls were ready to go in the sub-zero temps but the video camera didn’t fair so well. Freezing cameras don’t get much work done around here. The guys finally threw in the towel without getting any bulls on film knowing that they needed a workable solution that included a warm area for the camera…..without trapping the camera guy.
Jim got to thinking…..and moving straw bales…..
Until the flu took him out on the second day of filming.
Great job sorting out a bull!
All in a day’s work for this little cowboy.
Oops! Didn’t mean to startle you awake from your nap.
The video fort will be back again next year at Felton Angus Ranch. Jim can’t wait to build his next straw bale creation.
