So this is more story time than it is anyhting else, however this particular heifer is going back to market with the rest of the rejects on wednesday. So here is the deal I picked up three non exposed heifers at a local sale, got these three home and notice right off the bat that one of them was extremely squirrely. Got her there in the pins and she seemed to calm down substantialy. Today I get out there to finish setting posts in the ground and she acts much like a spirited horse. Prancing pawing full blown runs to dead stops before fences, testing fences, and the like. On one of these events my father had to have his arms inside the pens and she charged (which should have been expected seeing as how she had been sizing us up the entire time we were there and seemed to have more courage while our back were turned) She charged dad stands up throws hands in the air yells and drives the heifer back off the fence. Things looked good then she turned from the other side of the pens dead run and attempts to jump the fence. It was at this moment that I understood why they are called fence busters, and how much damage a cow can do. With that long winded story said, I am selling the heifer, is this a bad Idea or should I keep her and wait.
