What is the last " stunt" one of your cows pulled?

Postby Kingfisher » Tue Jan 11, 2011 11:36 pm

And was it your fault? ;) Last time I went to the " farm" this is what happen I hear. I say I hear because I did not see it. Lloyd got out of the truck to pull a round bail out of the back and decided to walk to the hedge row and pee. On his way there he turned his back on " Bad bad Leroy Brown" who proceeded to tell him with a head but in the arse he would prefer he pull the bail first I guess.........I would ship that bull for other reasons from what ya'll have taught me. It would be of no fault of Leroy's just some poor handling I suppose from the " breeder." :)

Them bulls will get pretty excited sometimes when the hay comes out. Mine tried to stop the tractor with his head the other day as I was carrying a bale to the feeder. I just stopped and let him get a few bites. After that he ran on down to the feeder and waited on me, cows in tow.

I turned my back as I was putting out some range cubes the other day, one of the friendly cows gave me a little head butt to the back. I guess I wasn’t fast enough for her. I don’t give them cubes too often so they get pretty exited when I do. Over all, my little herd is pretty easy to deal with and we have had most of them since they were 400 heifers. Probably the hardest cow to work is the one that loves to have her head and neck scratched and petted. The problem is that she has is spoiled and thinks she don’t have to do what the others are required to do. She will turn and walk right through ya in the working pen.

I have a lot of gates open since it is winter. When I drive by the cows will bellow and then try to follow the truck around the farm. They love Chevrolet. :banana: If I pull in and park across the single strand paddock division fence from them one or two heifers will sometimes hop over it to see if I have treats... :cowboy: The snow is thigh deep this year...

A girl friend of mine needed me to board her bull for a while. He was 2 years old, and pretty tame. He buddied right up with my steers. Things went fine untill he took off after an old mare of mine got underneath her and summer saulted her over his back. Poor girl just layed there afraid while he head butted her. I chased him off and we locked him in the back pasture.

My fault? Yes for letting him in with my horses. But I had not thought it would not be a problem and he had been with my horses at the barn, in the corrals. I guess the field was a different matter for him.

This wasn't real recent but it was a "stunt"... one of the round bale feeders came unbolted and the bull got 1/2 of it stuck on his head. The way it was stuck made him look like that picture you see of the Grinch's dog with the antlers taped to its head teetering off the cliff... it looked like he had a full "rack". He was walking around the pasture with that thing on him so I call the hubby and he says, "just go pull it off!"... I'm thinking, "man are you NUTS?! He can kill me with that thing!" but that's just what the hubby did. He came home, walked out in the pasture and lifted the stupid thing off his head. Yep, never a dull moment.

when we were getting rid of our last shorthorn bull (8 years old) at the sale barn, he knew he was burger meat, and wasn't fond of the idea, he was a bit of a handful getting into the trailer, but we heard later at the barn that he was just livid, and wanted to kill anything in sight.. kinda scary idea for a 2400 lb pile of muscle...

the two bulls we have now, a yearling and a 4 year old are pretty good, the older one is a chicken, and I'm ok with that, and the young one is really calm, he can't be disturbed for anything.. the two of them actually get along great

I had one cow a couple years back pretty much abandon her calf, but want to kill you if you were to try and help it.. a few good knocks onthe head with my 3/4" breaker bar and she started to smarten up.. we were going to ship her, but didn't, she makes giant calves... she's gotten better over the years, but I'll never turn by back on her

That bull would have bought a one way ticket to the salebarn for that stunt. Your on the road to one of those newspaper stories.

when i was a kid dad had a cow that tore up every fence we had. he finaly got it in the shoute .backed the 55 dodge pu with wooden stock racks up & loaded her in the pu , she leaped up broke the boarde in the front & caved the roof of our 1955 dodge pu in
well dad got his pistol out & fired of a round right next to her head so she could fell the percusion of it. some how she calmed down enough to put ropes on her & ty her head down to the pu. so then we pushed the roof back up with our legs while laying in seat as dads head wouldnt clear the cavein . he said that night she was hamburger didnt not even try to sale her .
evertime we had beef for a long time it tasted sweeter cause it was our revenge for the pu roof

Make that critter a full-grown bull, take that feeder in half, insert head near one end with the thing arched up over his back and THEN you got the picture..! haha

Did she actually "birth" the calf or did he get tired of waiting and just crawl out. :lol2:
