And this is why I don’t let TB herd cattle willy-nilly…

I doubt this fella, who wandered into the yard yesterday evening, would be impressed.


They’re rarely all that impressed with me, even when I’m shooting into the ground and waving a spear around like a demented shaman. Don’t like being afoot close to a breed bull, they’re unpleasant.

Oddly I’m not physically afraid of them, because .44 Magnum. But if I were ever forced to shoot one in self defense, the damned things have got more legal rights than I do around here.

You shouldn't ask these questions of a paranoid recluse, you know.

    More than a few old Amishmen have told me ” never trust a bull” .

    He looked like a buffalo until I put my glasses on and had a good look. I was wondering how you managed to get buffalo in your neighborhood after they were nearly wiped out. So, never mind.

  3. Bill says:

    Absolutely agree with Robert. Take it from this ol’farm boy, they can be docile as a lamb on minute, then kill yer ass the next!

    Never turn your back on a bull or a pig. Pigs’ll eat you. No, really, farm pigs will.

    Had a friend who said he shot a large Bull dead center in the forehead with a 30/30 and the bullet just flattened and bounced off. He walked around to the side and put one in his ear and it dropped like a rock. I wasn’t there but you might want to remember this if you get attacked.

    But if Laddie decided to try some Rocky Mountain oysters, Mr. Bull might have second thoughts about remaining in the area…

    Shoot, BBQ, Shovel and “What breed bull?”

  8. Henry says:

    You’d be surprised. Corgis were bred for it and for some reason bulls are afraid of them. Even more so than larger dogs.

  9. Klaus says:

    Corgis usually work cattle in teams and bulls are not comfortable around them because they’ll bite them in the balls. As anyone knows it’s a pretty big target for those who are fearless enough.

  10. Hooth says:

    It’s the old elephant and mouse thing. Bulls have poor vision and can’t see what the corgi is doing.
    Corgi are said to be the smartest of the cattle dogs.

  11. Paul B says:

    Corgi’s are good dogs and I doubt he would tackle anything that made him nervous. Bullet in the ear is best on old bulls. Never trust them as they are big. On the other hand they can be worth big bucks so I would not shoot it unless anything else would work.

  12. Johno says:

    Joel, slip a round of no.10 pellets into your shotgun. A dose of those in the arse, from enough distance so they don’t penetrate, will have him suddenly remember an appointment in the next county, and to keep off of your turf in future.

    Sounds like the recommendation is to “Loose the dog of war!!!”

    Don’t you have access to a backhoe?

To the stake with the heretic!
