Here's the load we came home with...40 heavy duty bull panels. And believe me, they are heavy. The husband and I unloaded all of them. He did most of the work, I helped all I could.
Saturday morning we got the alley and holding pen set up. We managed to get all the calves in the pen with a little feed. Feed is always the magical component when wrangling our cattle. After they settled, we loaded them up and headed for our favorite town to buck em.
This a.m. was the big moment. It was their time to shine. We bucked the little heifers first, than the bulls. Here are a few them in action.......
This is a little heifer out of one of our longhorns. She really tried. We didn't get it on film but when the husband was trying to get her out of the arena, she went after him. I didn't know he had those moves in him.
This little girl is out of our broke leg cow. Well, her leg isn't broke anymore, she is doing awesome. Her baby tried real hard.
I saved the best for last. I want to introduce you to Tadpole. He's out of another one of my longhorns. We didn't have any intentions on weaning Tadpole this go around cause he is so small. But he just wouldn't cooperate and leave the pen. We were worried the bigger calves would bully him off feed but Tadpole holds his own. He gets right in there and makes em move over. Tadpole seems to cause problems. He never wants to go the way you need him to, kinda runs blindly in a scared state! The husband has cussed him on numerous occasions and was hoping to take him to the sale barn. But after the try he showed today, I think he's staying with us. Sorry husband!
