What You’ll Need
To accomplish this training, you’ll need to have on hand:
Two or three young cows or steers. I borrowed two 7-month-old steers from a kindly rancher friend down the road from me.
A small enclosure to contain the cattle, ideally within or next to a small arena. My own round pen, constructed of 6-foot-high, horsesafe wire panels, was perfect for this purpose, as my horse could observe the cattle at a distance from every corner of my ranch. This round pen is positioned off to one corner of my smallest arena.
