Bahaha! That was great! I laughed so hard. I didn't know that cows were so gutsy!

LOL, now I'm getting anxious to get some video of it. He looks a lot more dangerous when you can watch the whole thing...when he's got his ears pinned, bobs his head a time or two, and then goes in for the strike.

Reining Girl, you and Rio are both welcome at my barn anytime! If it's in the summer, we can go have some fun with cattle (if we have a sick one, you can even work on your roping ).

Sorrel, I appreciate the sentiment but Dobe's gonna spend the remainder of his obnoxious days right here. I don't think I could bear to part with him...he and I just fit each other perfectly. His attitude is almost as big as mine is LOL.

Penguin, you are so right about the comedian bit! I have never in my life seen a horse with more expression than he's got. I know that horses aren't humans, but sometimes he does make me wonder.

Paintluver, they can get gutsy at times. I wish that Step-mom had managed to get a picture when we had one of them crawling underneath us to get out of the pen. It is quite a feeling to have an 800 pound yearling go right between your horse's front legs and then go to crawling down his belly toward his tail. At least this year we didn't have any crazy ones that would purposefully try to run you over.

Wow Smrobs that looks like fun but I don't think Romeo would handle cows running under him as well as Dobe haha!

Great pix! We used to have a little bay gelding that worked cattle like that. He was quick as a cat (Doc O'Lena bred, and way back then, it was within a generation or two), but would never have made it in competition - he was too agressive with the cattle. He sure made our work easier, though, because he seemed to instinctively know what we wanted.

We even used him to round up a neighbor's escaped bulls. They were as big as he was, if not bigger, and not in a very good mood, but he faced them down every time they turned toward him (I was shaking in my boots!)

Your photos sure bring back memories!
