Shiney! You do clean up right nicely, if ya don't mind my sayin. Nice to see there are more females on here. I have a 11 year old daughter, that has done alittle trappin and huntin and fishin with me. I think she likes the fishin best. Anyway, it's good for her to see others out here doin the "boy" stuff, and help her know that it is for girls, too. That's why I'm glad when I see Little bit, trappin woman, and the rest of ya'll on here. Grandma try's to hard to "ladyfy" here alittle TO much.

your right one time was helping my grandpa tag and band calves on the four wheeler heifer (one with here first calf) hit the four wheeler my grandpa ran one way and i the other she kept after the four wheeler

another time we were walking with a rope and i would rope them and hold them down grandpa would tag any way i put the rope on a calf the and the mother started coming for me grandpa ran but i had the calf so i dove under the hot wire still with the calf luckly the cow respected the wire alot more than she wanted the calf

The old timers would tell the youngster, never get between the cow and her calf.....that was not just a tale on the farm.....but in life.

:? I think the cows in Oklahoma may be a "little slow" and have yet to learn the art of using the proper utensils......just a guess. :lol:

I dont typically hand feed them, they are more less just big pets... you cant hand feed all cows, most arent tame enough for that. They"re Angus.

benelli, the same thing happened to a friend of mine in July, seems she tied the lead around her arm and led bessie out into the lot, then she went to open the gate and ol bess didn't like it and drug her around the lot a couple of times, banged her up and filled her briches with manure for good measure. Of course she is blond :wink: :lol:

Question about Angus cattle, do you notice that they tend to "go through" fences more so than other breeds? Now this may sound a little odd, but over the years I have noticed that of us who own or have owned Angus spend more time trying to get some of them back inside if our (barbed wire) fences. Just curious.

Never tie something to you that may get you "in a bind"! I once was net fishing and had a four point "drag" that was attached to a nylon rope and I would toss it into the river and snag my nets. I usually had it tied to the boat, one day I decided it would be easier to handle if I put a loop on my end and put it on my wrist. Great flexibility ... until I snagged a stump or log on the river bottom and the boat motor was idling and going downstream and my arm and the drag were still upstream! :shock: So there I was...the boat going with the current and me and the drag the other, so I pulled very steady against the current and weight of the boat and notice the boat is taking on water because I am forcing the rear end "down"....having a Mercury motor and the kill switch on the wrong side of the way I was facing made it most difficult to kill the motor and stop the additional pull of the boat. I finally pulled with all my strength and got enough slack to get the loop off my wrist and let the stump/log have the drag and nylon rope!!! NEVER TIE YOURSELF TO SOMETHING YOU MAY WANT TO GET AWAY FROM!!!!!!!!!! What did Forrest Gump say,"Stupid is as stupid does". AMEN Forrest! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Wow rat that sounds scary.

When fishing we would tie our stringers to our belt loop, that way if a shark came up and grabbed it the loop would break, instead of it being around your belt or waste.

There's been many a man/woman killed by tyeing off to themselves around cattle. One mistake that a lot of people make is when pulling calves they put the other end of the chain around their wrist. Buddy of mine that weigh's close to 400lbs did this 4 years ago and the cow got up and pulled him across the pasture. We maesured his track's as 15 foot step's until he fell and dragged behind. Luckily the calf came out and I was going to help and found him. 2 day's in the hospital and month's of recovery later he even laughed about it.

Come on guys, that was TWO YEARS AGO.....we've not had a posting from her in a long long time. She must have married an Oklahoma cattle rancher and lost interest in trapping!
