IDK about a 150lb Frisbee , but tossed like a rag doll for sure.
Safety gear saved him from serious injuries.

What a ride !!!!

I had a much bigger, Angus bull throw a steer of around the size of that bull over me, into a fence, pulling out the staples for many posts. The bull, Shrek, was usually docile, but was angry because we were trying to load him on a trailer. I am glad the steer he threw went over me, instead of hitting me.

It woulda been more cool if he was wearing a cowboy hat instead of a helmet.

It's basically a business decision. Less time at the ER more time at the pay window!

We never had any of that safety gear when I was up and down the road.

I was watching a friend move some cattle from his pasture out to graze in a cut cornfield. The bull wasn't going where my friend wanted it to go. So, my friend walked up to the bull, put both hands on its face and shoved its head in the direction he wanted the bull to move. The bull did as told. I would never have the nerve to do that. It's a BIG bull, too!

I've always been a little scared of FMC's (Fast Mean Cows, for you non-McManus fans). But I've never had any real experience being around cattle.

Worst injury I ever had was when I got bucked off a donkey during a donkey race. No way I'd get on one of those bulls!


What from Christ that soul can sever,
Bound by everlasting bands?
None shall take thee
From the Strength of Israel's hands.
