    Crazy Traininig :p

    Well I thought I might as well post this as sort of a training log with my yearling cow. For starters: She is one year old and I have just begun to work with her about one-two months ago. She is a Heifer. She is a black angus BUT I get to keep her and not her :) Her name is Lucabara.

    She has come a LONG way since I first started working with her. She wouldn't approach anyone, eat from your hand, let you touch her, etc. Now, She walks right up to me without a care eats pretty much anything I feed her from my hand and accepts a halter. I know one and a half months is a long time to not have taught her lead but she is in a pen with a bunch of other calves and its a bit difficult with them always interferring. Well this is all in Luca's training log but I will add more as she progresses! Enjoy and please feel free to share your animal training logs and what not :)

    Very cool idea! There are actually quite a few trained riding cows out there so it's not that wild of an idea. The basics of teaching a cow to ride are pretty much the same as that of a horse - teaching them verbal commands and weight/leg/rein cues, desensitizing them to a rider, etc.

    Premier Longhorns trains Texas Longhorns and sells them all over the world as parade steers, photo op animals, and just for people to ride. I believe they use clicker training as well as some regular horsemanship techniques.

    I've never heard of that! Awesome sauce! Lol good to know that Im not crazy for trying this! She is pretty small but since im only 110 Ibs we should be okay... I hope. I don't know if you would happen to know but would she still get runs if regularly trotted? I know they usually do if they trot to long...

    Alright update: Luca was put out to pasture (the pasture is ginormous) as my dad forgot we were taking her to our house. Before pasture I was able to halter her and she came when I called her. Fast forward one month I bring it up to my dad. He was super awesome about it and told me to get her in the barn and he would trailer her to our house. Had tto wait another two weeks before I could get her and locorice (her bff) in the barn. Once I did they were trailered to our house that day. Downside: she pretty much forgot everything. She runs every time I get close to her. But... I was able to touch her neck and feed her earlier so maybe she remembers me a bit ;)
