Yep, I do, and fortunately, I'll probably be doing the roping. Brother managed to tear up a finger really bad on his roping hand. He could still do it if he had to, but it's hard, especially if he has to dally fast. So, it's going to be up to me *happydance*.
Someday, I will
get a video of Dobe doing his thing. He has an aggressive nature to begin with, but spending almost 2 years in a feedlot just solidified it...plus, I praise him every time he tears into one. Probably shouldn't but....
He'll lash out with anything he can: teeth, pawing, and kicking. God, the stories I could tell on him.
We were driving a herd of about 70-100 yearlings down a road to their pasture from the corrals and Dobe and I were riding point, just going along at a nice easy walk. Anyway, I noticed him acting funky; raising his head, swinging it side to side, pinning his ears, and walking wonky.
I started looking around to see what the heck and there was a heifer walking a few feet behind him with her head stretched out toward his butt. We just continued on and it wasn't 20 feet later that his butt popped up a bit and I heard a loud CRACK behind me. Turn around, and sure enough the heifer is crumpled in a heap in the middle of the road with a hoofprint in her forehead
. She got up and was fine, but she stayed in the middle of the herd after that.
