Well, I tied up my first calf this morning. She wasn't too hard to catch, if I was a little faster it would have gone quicker. She actually didn't jump around very much. liked the brushing. She was born in January.
When does everyone else start working with their calves?
Also, I wrote a piece on how I break calves. It doesn't work for everyone but it has for us. The admin guys will post it on the front webpage in a couple of days.
