Murphy's Law of Ranching
sandhiller posted a topic in General ChatThe higher the cost of a critter. The higher the percentage it will injure itself. The lesson patience comes when you need to move him from a pasture with a canyon about 3/4 mile to one without to hold him till you can get back with a trailer and a couple horses to haul him home. Once you get him going in the right direction, back off. If he stops move up, as soon as he starts, you stop. He will learn to move away from your pressure and you can move him from a comfortable distance. Give him plenty of time to rest. Your morning just got shot to **** so just as well make this job as easy as possible. A tired bull will either get on the fight or go down. He can only move as fast as he is capable of. And if the generations of cowboys who have passed on are smiling down on you. You will have success.
