Wink Had my giggle for the day.

I just absolutely had to share this because I laughed my butt off when it happened. We just finished shipping out about 450 head of yearling heifers today, we've spent the last 3 days pushing them in to the corrals from several pastures ranging from 1 to 5 miles away. Well, they are big enough that I don't get afoot to count them off to load them on the trucks, too big a risk of getting kicked or run over so I do everything horseback. I needed a good broke horse so, of course, I rode Dobe all 3 days. Anyway, we were loading this afternoon and we had counted off like 25 to go on one tier of the truck and we had mashed them up into the small pen attached to the chute. My brother had a whip and I was running the gate. We got them all pushed up into the little pen and Brother and I were inside with them. He was against one fence on his left, I was right beside and a couple of feet farther back than him with the gate pulled tight to my right side just being held by my hand. There was this one big heifer that absolutely did not want to go up the ramp to get on the truck and was intent on getting back past our horses if she had to run into us to do it. The first time she came back toward us, Dobe kinda nibbled on her head when she got close enough (some of you know he is incredibly aggressive toward cattle). The second time, she came fast and actually bumped her head into Dobe's chest and he took a decent bite on her neck, he started to get mad when she bumped him. The third time she came back, she didn't even get close before Dobe dropped his head with his ears pinned all the way back and just grabbed ahold of her ear.....HARD. I heard a sound that sounded like ripping and just figured that he had scraped some of her hair off, he's done that before. LOL, she bellowed, turned, and ran right up on the truck and I noticed Dobe acting funny with his mouth as if he had something in there. I just thought he was trying to spit the hair out so I leaned over and looked. Just as I did, I saw him spit out the little ear clip that she had to indicate that she had been spayed. He tore it completely out of her ear. I know that shouldn't be funny, but I couldn't help but laugh. I bet she thinks twice before trying to run over a horse again .

This is the kind of tag she had, it is similar to a staple in that the one end with the point gets bent over after it is punched through the ear, almost like a piercing on a human.

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/

*brushes shoulder off* I know, he's a bad-ass . I just wish so bad that someday I can get a picture of how he acts around cattle. He acts like an aggressive herd stallion, snaking his head and everything. When I am moving cattle and give him his head, he will purposefully try to cut one off from the rest just so he can chase it and chew on it's back as it runs (let him do it once just to see what he would do).

I think it's a quick and easy thing to do for cattle. Sometimes a bull will hide a nut when they are banded, or the band breaks, or (like when we get them) the heifers are put out to pasture with a bunch of cows and bulls right next door. It just prevents them from going into heat and getting accidentally covered by a bull. These yearlings that we get belong to a feed lot and the last thing feed lots want to mess with is calves. Before they started spaying them, we would average 1 to 2 calves born down here per year. The owner would just tell us to take them and do whatever with them because they didn't want them. That's how we ended up with most of our bottle calves when I was a kid (they sure made for some good meat though ).
