I went over the fence a number of times, got flattened a couple of times, a few head butts, stepped on (none real bad), but the funniest from the spectator’s view (my brother) was when I tried to take down a calf for medicating. It was on the upper end of what a scrawny 120 lb weakling should take on, and I lost my footing. It drug me around the corral twice with each lunge its head butting my chin. Finally my brother was able to stop laughing enough to assist, and we got the pills down the calf. My chin was swollen for a couple of days. Happened over 40 years ago, but my brother still reminds me of it. He still laughs. Looking back, it probably was quite a show.
