The bull scared me today!
I was checking fencing as the bull walked by. I followed him to get to the next spot. Followed him for about 10 yards then we moved his body line so i was in his blond spot behind him. He spun around instantly and pawed the ground and snorted. Not going to lie i peed a lot since he was about 10 feet away. I hoped up the orange gate. Cleaned the arteries out pretty good!
I don't like people coming up behind me either!
we have an old wooden hammer right inside the door of the barn. One of its uses is the cow attitude corrector. When we first got the new Angus bull he was being a jerk the same way. Grab the hammer by the head and crack him hard across the nose with the handle. he has never been a problem since. A few months ago the last one to calve was a newbie. As soon as we pulled the calf she was up charging us. The bull was in the next pen over and when he saw her get cracked with that handle he was spinning tires trying to get out to the pasture fast as he could. lol.
