Those things suck up battery power in about 15 min. The video didn't work but I can imaging the animals getting snorty wondering what type of erratic predator they are dealing with.

That's a pretty cute video. My grandsons tried it two years ago and the older cows pretty much ignored the cars, but the yearlings followed their cars right into the trap pasture.

Your link didn't work for me either, so I brought over a different one.

I tried it... cows alternated between being terrified of it and chasing after it to see what it was I let the one cow catch up with it and he promptly LICKED the car!

Haha southern that is a GOOD question.

With my loco spawn of hell cows they would probably demolish it and then take a dump on it.
Hopefully my others in TX will be too afraid of it.

Thankfully I will be using a cheap $20 one and NOT my really nice $200 one lol

Sorry saddlebag and thanks boots. My phones being a yard and I was afraid it would end up not working :/

Lol Delfina sounds like my cows!

It is not enough to know how to ride; one must know how to fall.
