Well why don't you give us some more details? I am years past roping my first cow but there are other members that could benefit from your recent experience.

Well, what really frustrated me was trying to line my leg up with the calf flank. I kept concentrating on that too much and let other things slip my mind. The first few tries I threw the lasso too close to the calfs head and kept missing. Lil suckers move fast! I don't have much upper body strength so trying to tighten the lasso was hard for me too as for securing the calfs legs hahahaha I bet was a knee slapper to watch; but hey, I did it!
