    Default Maybe they needed a good roping or cutting horse instead...

    I can't fathom the braniac that thought that this was a good idea!

    The closest they got is when the one snowmobiler bailed when the bull charged him - I don`t think I'd have stuck around for that either!

    AARGH-H-H!

    Two species, both alike in dignity,
    in fair Columbia where we lay our scene.
    From ancient ambivalence break to new amity,
    where hot mammal blood makes farmer's hands unclean...
    This is really bad!

    Well, their thinking wasn't entirely off base. It is easier sometimes to herd two cows than a single, the idea being they are herd animals and will stick together. But you use a gentle cow that is used to humans and is used to being fed from a bucket. They call them a Judas cow. Oh, and bulls and cows will eat oats, but they prefer sweet feed.

    LOL! When I purchased my old eventer (16.3 h.h, 1,500 lb. Appy), the other prospective purchaser was a 6'7" cowboy. I outbid him. Horse had too great a jump to just go chasing steers!

    Exactly....but just turning a random Hereford bull loose doesn't seem to fit with the logic of what you described
