When the calf bawled, you’ll never believe what happened…

by Kevin on April 14, 2016

We were tagging calves in a big pasture. I had just reached out and roped one. The fact that it was laying on the ground had nothing to do with my roping skills or the power that this little guy had.

He stood up, stretched, and looked up at his mama who was watching close by. He took a step toward her and the rope pulled tight. He let out a little bellow…

…and all hell broke loose.

Mama came at Fiona and me with a vengeance rarely seen since the days of Viking warriors and Elvis fans. She tried to forcibly remove my horse’s hind end, but Fiona side-stepped her.

I wish she hadn’t. The cow ended up right under us and lifted us in the air. Luckily, my horse doesn’t take kindly to cows underneath her, and she kicked that cow four times right between the eyes as she climbed off of her.

I just sat up there calmly peeing down both legs…just another day at the office.

I looked for help from my partner. He was running back to his horse with batwing chaps floppin’ for all they were worth with a mad mama on his heels.

But alas, that is a story for another time.
