How the hell do you doctor or dose those guys? Obviously can't run them down a chute or put them in a squeeze?

^^ actually you can:) we have special chutes made for Longhorns.. but then again.. if you have a bull that big.. I wouldnt be crowding him in a chute:/ that would be scary.. I guess its just easy with my boy because he is gentle haha. I can sit on him:)

GH, with cattle like that, unless you have a specially designed chute, pretty much the only option is a couple of cowboys with ropes. While some of them with the shorter horns can run up in a regular chute by tipping their head where their horns point up and down, when they get to a certain length, that's just not possible anymore.


And I can tell you, you have to be one heck of a hand with a rope to get one on those horns that span more than about 5 feet.

That's why I said a couple. I would never dream of taking on a full grown bull and trying to rope it and do anything with it by myself. However, if you've got at least 2 people there and both are decent with a rope, you can get one to put a loop on the head or front foot and another to get one on the hind feet. If the heeler has a decent horse, once they get both hind feet in a loop, then they've got control of the critter.

I would say you would have to be handy with a rope to get it over those horns for sure! Hard to rope bulls with horns a quarter of that size let alone 5 plus feet across! Have acutually seen where guys will heel a bull first then have the other guy rope a front leg. They are hard to handle though just about anyway that you do it though.

Great pics of the bull thanks for posting them.

HanginH - you don't rope over the head, you rope the legs.

I have done both. Bulls are so strong sometimes roping them by a front foot can take a lot of strength away from them. Also once they are heeled its easier to tip them over.

Don't rope many bulls because it's just to hard on most horses.

Have a good one.
