Ya know yesterday it took us half a day to get in and pour 8 bulls. That's after we dodged the rain and thunder and lightning! We still had 3 Hereford and 1 Angus bull to go play hide and seek with. We got home at 7:30pm! Took alllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll day to get 4 bulls. We got the 3 Hereford ones located and to the corrals by 2pm. Went home grabbed some lunch and went to look for ole Angus boy. Got him located at the farthest spot away from anything! He wasn't there earlier! Went and got the ponies and off we went to gather him and about 50 pairs. Cows to the meadows and ole Angus boy to the corrals. Its suppose to get 100*+ next week! Cows don't like the heat. We will have to gather all the cows and put them on the meadows along the trees and creek. Oh the drama! 3 of the Hereford bulls left the corrals after they got poured. Like good boys they headed north to the meadow the bulls will be on all summer. But one bull decided to hang around and see who showed up. Yep. Ole Angus boy! The bellowing started. Head butts through the fence. All along the fence...As if we don't have anything better to do then fix fence. :) Got ole Angus boy in and poured and the pushing and shoving began! Bloody heads and all! All you can do is wait it out. If you get to close, serious damage can happen to you and or your horse or dog. These suckers are huge and quick. And they don't care who or what is in their way when they are fighting. And one of them cries uncle and runs off. You take one at a time up the creek. We did leave the Angus bull behind so he wouldn't get hurt. He would be the only Angus bull in with 12 Hereford bulls. Not good. Still have 11 bulls to get in the other group of cows. That should go smooth. HA! Gotta love those boys.
Playing hide and seek in this terrain!
The fight is on!
