I have found that with Brahman this is especially true.
The other thing that has happened here is that when the heifer was originally tied up it was a very painful experience. Brahman have very good memories. She now associates the halter with pain. There may be nothing one can do at this point to undo the wrong.

But thats the only thing I can think of that is why she acts the way she does. Which makes me think she was crazy to begin with because she was totally out of control while she was tied up. We will not have only 3 weeks to get another one trained. We have to register for the next show in 3 weeks, but the show is not until March. Although my daughter has never shown cattle before, her boyfriend and his family have and they have been the ones helping and teaching us through this whole process. Ive been told about tying her to a donkey, but I dont want to hurt her or have the donkey abuse her. Not exactly the responses I wanted to hear, but as heart breaking as is to have to get rid of her, at least makes me feel more confident in the decision of getting rid of her. Thank you.

Boy's would set for hour's outside the stall the heifer had to come to them for water and feed. After the intial step it was repeated in the stall. Those heifer's turned into pure pet's for them. The halter training started in the stall by just wearing the halter.
Step two was a lead rope inside the barn to the feed bucket. Those girl's would follow those kid's like a puppy.
You are not going to force a Brimmer with good result's. They made sure to keep them in a quite environment without strangers until trust was established. Then they would walk them in the lot with stanger's looking on.
