      by a 700 pound heifer. If you haven’t witnessed it, I highly recommend it. The only permanent damage was to his pride.

      I ended up having to climb the fence a few times myself but I never got horizontal.

      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.

      I used to hunt on a cattle ranch in southwest Arkansas, the guys did most of their herding and medicating  from 4-wheelers.  One onery steer WOULD NOT go where he was supposed to be.  After about 10 tries and the steer running through 2 fences the owner gunned his atv, hit the steer in the side at what looked like slightly subsonic speed.  It flipped the steer onto his side and ended up with the the atv parked on top of him.  The rancher slowly got off, gave him his shot, reversed off of him and continued on his way.  I almost peed my pants laughing.

      I kidded the owner about it when I was leaving at the end of the day.  He still didn’t see a lot of humor in the situation. I guess he didn’t like fixing fence.

      Lucky the steer did not wind up on top of the ATV and rider.

      One of the guys I went to high school with hit a bull with a VW bug (late 60’s vintage). The bull crushed the front end, then got off and walked away. I still laugh at that.

      I was about 12 when we were treating calves for pinkeye. We , the family, had crowed this 200 pound calf in a corner and Dad warned us not to let this calf get past no matter what. Dad was not to be taken lightly. That calf went to dart past me and I just locked my arms around its neck and held on for the ride. It finally stopped after about 75 feet with me jammed up against a barb wire fence. My younger brothers thought it was a great display of cowboying. I just knew that calf wouldn’t hurt me as bad as disappointing Dad would.
