Meet Redman and Tyler Osborn at the 9th Annual OMC Foundation Blue Jean Ball
Tyler Osborn from Pomona will be on-hand with his Watusi Bull, Redman,
Saturday, September 30 at the Ozarks Medical Center (OMC) Foundation’s
Ninth Annual Blue Jean Ball. Blue Jean Ball attendees will have the opportunity
to meet and take photos with Redman at the event.
Tyler is a 2017 graduate of Willow Springs High School and will be attending
Missouri State University-West Plains this fall where he plans to major

Watusis. He now has eight in his herd.

from central Africa. It is characterized by very large horns. In 2016,
the total number for the breed world-wide was thought to be approximately
1500 head, with about 80% of them in the United States.
Redman is very gentle and is lead rope trained.
