Just let him walk in front, in case you say or do something he doesn't like.
We raised steers when I was young. My favorite was a bull. I had ridden in the back of the pickup truck, bringing him home as a calf. I named him Wiggly. I’d crawl in the pen with him in the evening as he ate. My Dad screamed at me to never get in that pen. He said the bull would gore me or stomp me. I ignored him and did it anyway....
One night I ran to the pen, and the bull was gone. I burst out in tears. I was sure my Dad had slaughtered the bull. My Dad came home from work. He told me to get in the truck. He drove me to a neighboring farm. There was my bull, chained to a stake via a ring in his nose. All my Dad had to say was: YOU did that to him, by not obeying.....
Wow, tough lesson for you for sure.
Superman stands, as six bullets bounce off. Why does he duck when the gun is thrown at his head?????
My young bull wasn't out today. And i had brought carrots for him.
These guys were in the fence, but this was close enough....

"Not All that Wander are Lost."
6 yrs ago, I came thru just before a huge wreck on ice in Wyoming.
Now, I changed runs, and came thru Missouri 12 hrs after this: I think it follows me....
Found him again. He REALLY likes carrots!!!!! He can stick his tongue almost 9" outside the fence!!
It's not every day I get passed by a cow....
You can join the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation for as low as $35. (Or more if you'd like to contribute)
If your focus is individual freedom and reducing the size and scope of government, it’s not enough to cut things back and hope for the best. You have to actually solve the social problems that give rise to so much of what government does and what it spends so much money on.
If your focus is social justice and reducing poverty and inequality, it is now evident that spending money on these problems is not enough. We’ve been doing that from the New Deal in the 1930s through to the Great Society in the 1960s and beyond. If anything, the problems are worse, not better. The fight needs to be taken to the underlying causes of poverty and inequality.
Whichever way you look at it, you end up in the same place: the family. The single best thing we can do to increase opportunity, raise incomes, build a fairer society, fight crime and drug addiction, improve health, reduce welfare – you name it – is to try to make sure that every child in America is raised in a stable, loving home.
Heard a great one on a sports talk show: abuse, maybe- but Hilarious!!!!
A guy called in that he had problems with animals, at night, in his yard.
He didn't want to shoot them, so he mixed a concoction of vaseline, habenaros, Tabasco sauce, and jalapenos. He stirred it up, put it in a bowl, and placed it in his yard.
In the night, he was awakened by terrifying screams. He ran to the floodlights and lit his yard. There, he saw 6 racoons, on their backs, pawing at their eyes and mouths- screaming! Eventually, they crawled to the woods. He never had animal problems again.....
Greatest game ever played! Unitas hands off to Ameche as Lenny Moore blocks. First Sudden Death OT Championship- Yankee Stadium, 1956
First game I remember part of. We had a 9" black and white tv, mounted in about a 5' console...
I loved watching Jim Parker (77) block as I grew up!
Best line on tv, ever: Ali, to a kid (I think on Art Linkletter?)
"I can hit you three times before you can blink!"
Kid sits bewildered.
"Want to see it again?"
Boys need discipline growing up. Me and my Dad had many serious conversations in the basement of our home back in the early to mid sixties. His discipline helped me through USMC bootcamp when I left home two weeks after graduating from high school, and later in life. One of the best things that happen in my life was my Father and me becoming best friends over the years before he past away.
Sounds a lot like me. I tried to whoop my Dad constantly from my age 12-16. Never got it done. When I graduated, I went to work for him. Great Boss! If I worked 3 jobs a day for the rest of my life, I couldn't equal him!
