In April of 2018 we acquired two new Texas longhorn steers: Mr. Piney and Mr. Jiffy. We don’t waste any time in working with them and getting our new steers haltered and used to a saddle. From the very beginning they were both calm and eager to learn new things.
By summer, Mr. Piney and Mr. Jiffy were used to wearing their saddles. Mr. Piney is usually the one that likes to be led while Mr. Jiffy is happy to just follow along behind.
It doesn’t take long and a couple of months later, they’re both really used to their routine and looking forward to being saddled and taken for walks around the property – sometimes together, sometimes individually. Mr. Piney is like your top student in school who loves to learn and is happy to do whatever you want. Mr. Piney would make an outstanding exhibition steer to just lead or to ride.
