We have had my daughter's steer for 3 weeks tomorrow. The first week we had him, we took it easy as far as handling him.....trying to let him get settled. He had been lead and worked with a little when we got him - so we didn't have to "break" him completely. For the most part, he's good. He ties well, leads well and isn't aggressive. He's been washed/dried/brushed several times and been in the scales. He is a little sensitive to things around his head and still looks around at times for anything out of the ordinary. The biggest problem we are having is when we are working him in the evenings (leading him and practicing setting up with a showstick) he's not consistent as far as his behavior. Some days he does great - leading, setting up, behavior etc. Other days he acts like he's scared of everything and is a jerk the whole time. Two days this week while my daughter was setting him up he got spooked (seemed like it came out of nowhere) and broke away from her. She can't possibly hold him - he's almost 800lbs to her 120. Anyway, this is one of many steers that we've had and I feel like I shouldn't have to ask for advice or tips but I'm going to. I'm trying not to get frustrated with him but it's hard.....like I said he just isn't consistent in his behavior. Any advice or tips will be appreciated. I feel like I'm be impatient by worrying about it so early but it just makes me anxious when he breaks away. Thanks!
