on Quartz Creek Farm
This video was from last December, 2008. The baby yak bull was about 2 months old.
I just want to know where I can get a cool pair of jeans like Kenny's wearing in this video. They must be made of iron because he never flinched wehn the calf backed up and butted him. Nice hat, too!
I would have had to respond differntley when he butted!
Eddy, how would you have responded?
I am a genius at finding new ways to make typos! Even with pervasive spell checker!As for responding to the calf's butting..I just would not have been so calm, might have even said some dirty words. Kenny's response was the right one though. One of the ranches that we originally bought from advised very harsh responses to calves butting while others advised kinder responses. The kind approach seems to work best. We still have some rangy cows but over the years they have even become pretty friendly.
I've thought we've been too gentle. I'm more for firm handling. Kenny goes easy on them. Glad to hear other thoughts on the subject. Guess his approach is the better of the two.
