Working Horse Cow?


Ok, I'm dying of laughter right now after watching this. I have a feeling this video might have been already shared on THF, and I'm sorry if I'm reposting it, but it's too **** funny!

I LOVE the look on the horse's face!!

I guess it could be funny. But having had my husband air lifted to the hospital when his mare was hooked by a nasty steer - I don't find it funny.

If the horse roughs the cattle (biting, kicking, head butting), the team is disqualified. If a stock owner has a renegade bovine, they are not to be used in this type of an event.

What a cheeky little steer! Thanks for sharing, got a good chuckle out of that.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

This gives me the strong urge to herd horses while on cattleback

Still one of my scariest memories.

I'm a bit confused as to what the rider was trying to do with the calf. Seemed like he was just chasing it around so finally the calf got fed up -- it felt cornered. ANY animal will go on the offensive when cornered. And that calf definitely only saw the first horse as the threat; when the 2nd rider came in the calf was not very offensive to him.

I would have been inclined to give the calf a good boot in the nose with my foot. Rules or not.

I love the look on the first horse's face:
"The hell you say! If you want him moved so badly, YOU go move the littler b*stard!"

Its funny till The calf stabs your horse in the head with his horns, Had that happen not cool!

When I can't ride anymore, I shall keep horses as long as I can hobble along with a bucket and wheelbarrow. When I can't hobble, I shall roll my wheelchair out by the fence of the field where my horses graze, and watch them!

Maybe I'm missing something...I'm not seeing any horns on those steers. Yes, it would suck immensely if those calves had horns, but they don't...so why can't you just appreciate the humor of this particular vid?
