Who's a pretty boy, then!



I'm not really afraid of bulls, but I've seen this guy when 'upset', and it doesn't make one over-confident.

I turned a corner, whilst walking the dogs yesterday, and came face-to-face with him; all that separated us was this flimsy length of blue tape (the electricity was OFF).

Let me tell you; he is HUGE, and this is as close as I ventured.

The dogs just ignore him, I'm sure they know they could outrun him if it became necessary. I, however, probably couldn't.

Lady Magnon once witnessed one of his 'tempers', and now won't go within 100 metres of him; in fact she'd rather be in a different country. What a wuss!

  3. I feel the same as Lady M. That tape isn't much of a barrier!

  5. Always a good idea to be a bit nervous around these beasts, if he decides to do something there's not a lot you can do to stop him.

  6. He's been trained to believe that the electricity IS on. I think you're pretty safe.

  7. Always best to treat a bull with respect. Our neighbouring farmer friend raising a bull from its birth and put it with his herd of ladies. He brought the bull in one day to have his feet treated and when he tried to separate him from his harem the bull attacked him to the ground and only the proximity of another farmer with a pitchfork saved his life - he recovered but had a lot of bruises.

  8. I'm leery of all cows, be they bulls, heifers or other. They hang out in little groups so they can plot against unwary walkers. I've had to take the wrong path when out for a walk because a group (not a herd, just a small gathering) refused to shift out of the way so I could take the right one.

  9. I would proceed with caution. I had one jog towards me once, i think he was more curious to see if i had any food than he was to charge me, per se. The ground shook as he came closer, and i decided i needed more space.

  10. Beware of the Bull is very true.

  11. You did the right thing, turning on your heel and walking away quietly - you're dead right - they can't be trusted, ever.

  12. Lord, bulls are scary at the best of times but a French bull might be in a class of its own !

  13. I would trust him as far as I could toss him.
