Sweetie I'm referencing YOU running on asphalt vs a track...you'll get sore quicker on asphalt.
Yes our ground is hard.
A bull calf??? No just steers that managed to squeeze out of the chutes during roping practice LOL
I'm not sure how fast and hard your horses run but mine will NEVER be run on grass LOL. The only thing that will accomplish for my guy is making him more ratey then h already is so he can turn without wiping out. Common sense.

I don't know what you mean when you say 'gather cows' but yes, I do run a lil-- some are escape artists, and im not going to sit in the pasture with treats, and say nice things to him, and hope he comes back.. imma go get em, lol. There is quite a bit of loping, and trotting as well. Are you rotating their pasture or chasing them into pens.. or do you know why you're chasing around cows? Lol.
Haha! I run on tar & chip asphalt.. girl, I got callusing 2 inches thick on the bottom of my feet! Never had a splint to be honest.. when I was a kid we would have foot races in road.
That's right-- the rodeo people want a gentle lil steer to rope.. don't throwing him around all night make for tough steaks?
What if he runs in the pasture for turn-out time? You can controll it, but that involves making him miserable.. I hope he doesnt turn in the grass and wipeout.. better practice grass barrels with him. ;)
