Awww Too Cute
That's too cute about your lil boy!! I hope you can find a sweet cow someday. Mine are mostly pretty sweet but they're all different and some are more independent and can cause trouble. Avonna and Nova (twins) are notorious for missing their stanchions. They know where home is but they only want to come in when THEY want to come in so they try to run a muck in the barn while the others go to their own stanchions. Just like people, they all have their own unique personalities.

Its about 300 miles door to door, farm to ranch. His family has (as he says) a REAL ranch. Between his dad, his bro and himself they run 1000+/- cow/calf pairs and about 5000 acres. Beats our little 200+ acres. Their horses are more work horses. They use them for their cattle and for ranch rodeos. Last time I rode a paint named GT but his tendons were sore so this time I rode some funny looking roan. I asked him what this horses name was and he didn't know!! I'm like "What do I call him?" and he's like "I don't know. Call him horsey." Yea, I'm not 5 anymore (although I still have my Horsey Blanket, it had a rocking horse on it and I used it when I sucked my thumb;) Anyway, it didn't matter cuz obviously he wouldn't know his name anyway. "Horsey" seemed confused since only the boys ride the horses and only to work them, I was a new thing for him. Once we got on the ridge and looked at the cattle Horsey thought it was time to go home and I had to keep steering him away. He would balk at the bit. A few times he sped up on his own from walk to trot and I would pull back and he would get mad and really chomp at the bit then I realized I was squeezing w/ my legs while pulling the reins back. Yep, I'd be confused too. Their land is very sandy and no real rocks to speak of so at least, in theory, if I do fall off, it will be somewhat soft?? I don't want to find out. When I was 13, a friend had horses and her stepdad saddled up their Arabian for me. He had to really cinch it up tight cuz I guess the horse would bloat up his belly so the saddle wouldn't be tight. My friend led me around a little before letting my go. She warned me he might try to take me to the woods to rub me off and he did!! We went galloping to the woods and I was laghing so much it was hard to say "whoa" but I did finally get him stopped. I'm gonna get my own saddle so my heiniken doesn't get so sore!! Fun, worth it, but SORE!!

So do you still ride at that friends? I think I would be pretty leery. Falling off is bad enough, but on your chest and getting the wind knocked out of you?!?
You're SUPPOSE to give your IM shots, especially in meat animals,in the neck so someone doesn't cut open their rump roast to find an injection abcess, yum yum. But its easier in the butt, so thus far these have gone in the neck although I don't know why I care cuz she's already a pet. She has SOO much personality and is soo friendly. I have video of her sucking her tail!! She found it on he
