jcarkie":2kfwu65y said:2 years ago i was catching a month old calf to cut with my 20 year old son, like we have a dozen times. i grabbed the back leg and lost my balance, as i went to my knees he came up with the other foot and got me in the face. cut me below my eye and the force of it hit me in the forehead, i was bleeding like stuck hog. luckily i am hard headed but i was lucky, the little ones can lay you open with those hooves. we get so use to doing things that we don't take precautions that only take a few more minutes. i have been knocked in feed bunk by a cow scrambling to eat, with her stomach brushing by. just a couple of my finer moments, always in hurry too much to do.
Jcarkie, I got a good laugh out of this. Wonder what your son thought of this idea!!
