LOL, I know! Think of it this way, you won't weenie arm those steers, but you probably don't have that problem.

OH MY GOD.
I can't rope slow steers for the life of me.
I was in the Jr. Team Roping last summer and they picked the slowest steers. At one rodeo, I got the fasted of the bunch and got a money winning time in the open, and winning time in the Jr. Next rodeo I get a slow steer and I can't catch a thing!!! It was terrible! I think that only 3 headers of the juniors caught that day

LOL, I know what you mean.... good example, we were having hell sorting off a cow, would not go through the gate, finally I went to rope her, she sulled up. I spent more time trying to rope her standing still. I must of thrown a half dozen loops....embarrassing...Shouldn't be no different than roping the dummy in the yard right? Wrong! Couldn't do it...can't rope calves standing still...nothing...get them on the run and it's on! LOL

We should team up because I can't rope them moving!

Foal
Now I am really jealous!

We snag and drag calves up here but I am trying to convince the father in-law that we need to head and heel them but so far no luck.

Thanks for posting the picks!

LOL, I know, maybe at least head and heel the last 10 or 20 just for fun!

Where you from HanginH? (if you don't mind my asking)

Right now I am in Calgary Alberta while the wife finishes up her surgical residency. Her dad ranches up north by Lloydminster , Alberta.

We will see maybe we can do area the way you do. Not aureus we have good enough ropers to head and heel them very effectively.
