It is amazing to watch how fast a small calf catches on to things compared to a mature cow. My brother received a 2 year old cow this year, since he has rather crappy luck with both his cows and calves on the staying alive part. We plan to take her to Bonanza, so we are working on halter breaking. Today was the 2nd time my calf was tied up, and by the end he was walking on the halter great! Compared to my brothers cow, who we don't even dare to walk yet. She needs a bit more post time!
In the next few days I plan to work with my cattle quite a bit. As a couple are not quite ready to make a trip to town, temperamental wise. Plus I need to do a bit more clipping and work with a show stick! Stay tuned for more information on the prep for Achievement Day!
