Before we have our fun we need to gather our helpers.
Here they come.....
Getting closer and closer......
Come on, just a little closer......
It's kind of a trick we play, but ya gotta do what ya gotta do.
Catch em' with grain and then put on their halters.
Ok, so you might think this is a funny picture because it is a funny picture. This momma WOULD NOT move! Dixie thought that if she grabbed the tail and made the momma uncomfortable she might move. Nope!
So she tried kicking the momma. Nope!
I had to try it right? Super nope! This momma was taking me for a ride.It's hard to remember so many things, like making the horse go forward too.
I bet you can't tell who the daddy is to this baby. The milkman. The momma is tan, the daddy is black and the baby is grey/white? Weird genetics if you ask me.
See this? This is me on Downey. I moved these two all by myself, start to finish with no problem. Some pairs are easy and some are not, bottom line.
Oh, now who could this be? After all the work is done. Dixie came up empty handed with her pair.
She had a couple momma cows really mad at her for disturbing their newborn babies and decided to charge her. That happened to me last year and that can be scary.
Look at this baby. He was all curled up laying down in the reeds on the pond's edge having a little nap.
Dixie tried to get the calf up, but apparently they play possum so she had to tie a rope around this baby and drag her out.
The momma was a little concerned.
Not too concerned because it seemed to walk away so we just left this cow/calf pair alone until the next go around.
Did you know that horses tend to be their own chiropractor sometimes? After they have worked and played they love to get down and dirty and roll around. It helps their spines. Just a little FYI .
