help with calf not walking
« on: November 20, 2012, 03:43:25 PM »
I have a steer for my grandson.  He is tame-wash, blowed and clipped on Sunday, and he didn't move a bit.    He will not walk for nothin.   we have to push and pull.  when he does make a baby step we praise him and loosen the halter.   any helpful suggestions  thank you

IMO Walk him to his feed and water at each feeding. Stay patient, Rome wasn't built in a day he will come around. Good luck.  <cowboy>

do find on calf breaking.

there are literally hundreds of posts on this.

basically start small like you are doing and build on success, end on a good note.  go side to side.
