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

    Have a good one.
    Well you can't rope over the head on the longhorns now can you? You'd have to be really, REALLY good to be able to do that.

    I just love a good lookin' bull...I don't care what kind of attitude people talk about (And I've been on the other end enough times to understand LOL) but you just have to admire that kind of power.

    You can, but you're right, you have to be really good to be able to do that. There is a place where they hold a pasture roping competition and part of it, the more challenging part, is having to rope a longhorn. Not too many folks have been able to do it. I'm trying to find the video right now.

    Aha!! Go to about 9:45 in this vid, it shows some guys trying to rope a decent sized longhorn. The header makes the catch, but the heeler doesn't.

    And here's another video about it

    Much like horses, cattle need to learn to respect you and your horse. If you let them run over the top of you or learn to bluff you they will take advantage of it. Once they learn that, they get obnoxious.

    When I worked for a small purebred registered Red Angus ranch we picked out a couple real nice bull calves to hold back and take to a bull sale. I never made them into pets. When I walked out into the pens to feed them their grain I always had a sorting stick or a stock whip in my hand. They were not allowed to crowd me or get pushy.

    My neighbor who is in his eighties has a small bunch of cows he spoils. He went to load them in the trailer and they ran him over and about killed him because they don't respect him. They are like horses if they don't respect you are going to get hurt.
