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.
This is so true. Making pets out of bulls takes away their natural fear of humans. Then if they are not taught respect, they can kill you. I saw a 2500 pound "pet" bull almost crush a man to death. If it were not for the quick work of some seriously gutsy cowboys, that man would have died. He guy was brushing the bull. He got annoyed and leaned his shoulder and crushed him against the stall panels. One man jumped in and hit the bull in the face to distract him. Another grabbed the injured man and pulled him to safety. It was terrifying.

That is scary. Eeek!

My husband and I could move the ranch bulls by ourselves horseback. (There was almost 60) They would fight amongst each other of course, but they never challanged us horseback, we never allowed it. Also when it came time to vaccinate and Trich test there was never issues working them in the pens or chute, because we demanded respect and they gave it.

Honestly, I didn't think anyone out there could actually rope that big of a spread. I did look for videos, but only found small ones.

Ha, I'd like to see someone rope a moose with 10' antlers! :)

LOL, that's one reason why I love Dobe so much. Most of the cattle work I do is with cattle that belong to other folks so I just have to deal with how they've already been trained. Dobe is just obnoxious enough that he can get his licks (or bites/paws/kicks/etc) in and still manage to get out of the way of a charging critter. All I really have to do is hang on and let him do his thing. The yearlings that we take care of for the feedlot will sometimes get brazen and try to run us over. Dobe just laughs and then stomps all over them.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

We have some longhorns and they've never been aggressive, one or two have been fence crawlers, but none were aggressive, even the 2 bulls we had. Mind you the one was half Simmental and the other one was only 1/4 longhorn.

We also have some Corriente longhorn cross cows and the bases on their horns were too big for the horn wraps when we were roping them O.O and they're only getting bigger!

I love longhorns. :P

LOL, that's what we did this weekend too at a friends place.

He recently bought some bred Corriente cows so we worked them and branded all his late calves in his other bunch. I really like them Corriente cows they are great mothers. These ones are good cows they didn't get mad when we roped a calf and they start bellering. But they come stand close and keep an eye on their baby, then fetch him up after we are done and take him back to the herd.
