She’s pretty (it is a she right?), kind of makes me want one. Us that just a halter you have on her to ride? I may try it soon 😀
Thanks, yes she is a she! I use a horse bridle without the bit, but I first started training her with a halter with a chain that goes under her chin!

Is that also a horse halter? We have all our on rope halters now, really the only thing we could find for cows. We weren’t sure how horse gear would fit on a cow, didn’t want it to be too small & hurt them.
No, this is a cow halter. Horse gear works good depending on the size of your gear, I used my horse saddle on my heifer as well, I just prefer yo ride bareback because I can feel every movement she makes!

By the way... stupid autocorrect! I did type Hereford!

That is the breed I grew up with... so I am highly partial to their looks.
Ok lol! This is my first Hereford, but always loved their looks for some reason. I view them and their looks different from other cattle!

Ours were always sweet and pretty docile...but my grandfather culled hard for personality along with all the rest (conformation, calving ease, etc.)
That’s cool! I love sweet cows. Well, I must say, my cow wasn’t always this sweet… a local rancher sold her brother and her to my parents and they surprised me with her. I was out every day and night working with the two calves (the were in a field and ever had been touched).

Well, clearly all of your hard work has paid off! :clap
