Brahma cattle are more protective than some. Bred in to them to be survivors.....Mostly it is in the handling of them... there are always a few with attitudes... and yes, you want cattle with protective attitudes that run the brush and rough country... but MOST will learn who is the good guy and who is not and act accordingly.
Treatment of them early in their life has a big impression on the rest of their life. AND attitude is inherited.... and learned at the momma's side.... MOST cows we have with a "don't want to come in" attitude have calves the same way... They learn what they live....
Got a few here, angus and crosses... that are high headed and they are being weeded out. They cause disruption in the groups... one stupid acting nut case that doesn't want to come in the catch pen will take a half dozen running back out... or high headed ones that are looking for a way out or OVER a fence once penned... don't stay around here anymore.

Absolutely! Have seen it in the sheep - taking on mama's attitude. We get rid of wild, crazy ewes and ewelings. Not worth the trouble of working with them. And they upset the calm ones making them harder to handle.

Brahma are supposed to be fairly docile. Sure is pretty.
Most of them are pretty nice. We take the ones with attitude to the market but they are very protective of the babies even if it's not there's lol

Today I pulled up plastic off the floor. The tape has been Kilzed, textured and painted. Peeling it up was tedious. I unwrapped blue tape off door knobs. Put a second coat of paint on doors. Peeled tape and plastic off windows. Living room and kitchen still have plastic on floors. I’ll peel it up tomorrow.

I laid out quarter round in the bedrooms. When I took it up, I numbered each piece, taped in a bundle and labeled what room it was. I drew arrows for what direction it went.

I have the quarter round laid out, just needs to be fitted and brad nailed.

We got more rain last night, a soft soaking rain. Just watched Tyler weather forecast on my phone, since Direct TV saw fit to take Tyler channels away and give me Houston news channels. If you want to get depressed, Houston news is the place to go. Multiple shootings, stabbings, drive by and murders daily. WHY do I want to watch that? I don’t. Plus the Houston weather reports never even show Trinity county. Phooey on Houston channels.

Tyler weather is predicting up to 4” of rain through Thursday. The road to the farm will be slush. Only drawback to the farm, crappy country road. Oh well. I’m trying to get moved now and build pens and shelters for sheep so I can move them. Not complaining about the rain, we desperately need it. It just makes it a little more difficult.

I didn’t even go to the farm yesterday, was too tired. Went to Lufkin, did some errands. I’m recharged and ready to work outside today, weather permitting.

It's everywhere! Don't understand why ... So senseless. This morning they reported two incidents, just few miles apart. 3 dead and 2 more injured in one. 2 dead in another. :idunno :rant. What ever happened to break your nose fist fights? 🤔☹️

When we moved out to Wyoming we signed up for DirectTV. After the "sigh-on" deals ended and they upped our bill by $100, I called to cancel. She wanted to know why and I said because we don't watch it enough to make the cost of it acceptable. Besides, I live in Wyoming and I can't get any local news channels to check on weather and such. She said I could get NEW YORK for my local channel. In what universe is New York considered local for Cheyenne? I asked if they had anything local for Denver Colorado, as that might be close enough for weather. She said let me see - oh, you can get New York. I said "wrong side of the country" so she then she said I could get LA. Ah, no thanks...
