yep. High head, turn and go, maybe glare back once as they move off at that saucy 'screw u' trot?

The good thing about 'em is they're usually pretty good mommas & you usually can't get close enough to them for them to hurt you. Bad thing is they're usually pretty good mommas, often pass the high head trait down to daughters, you can't get close enough to them to get hurt and when they take off, they take 1/2 the rest of the group with them...

I agree. A good majority of are cattle will not come to strangers. They will get high headed and snorty. I consider that a good thing. They know me and that's all that matters in my book.

Kinda like the old dog adage.. If you think you're in charge, try ordering another man's dog around...
