We're Both OK


After a late evening trip to get checked out neither of us have any thing broken (I definitely don't have osteoperosis). We're pretty bruised and beat up but OK. The doctor wanted to give me a shot in the butt for pain but I told him that wasn't necessary, but I do hurt.


The cause. 

First he ran me down in the corral (I've never really realized how big those heads are till it hit me in the chest). I was sure I was about to meet my Maker. All I could think was "1 in  6 people survive a bull attack". (I guess there is still something here I'm supposed to be doing for the Lord or I'm sure I would be dead now). Then he went after my cowboy, knocked him down, and tried to rub him into the ground. Hurt as I was, I still managed to scare him off.

We were on foot, just trying to move him and another nicer old bull out of the corral and down the alley into the trailer, when he turned on us, hunting me then my cowboy.

I knew he was trouble. I hate those high headed bulls. I hate Charolais bulls. They are a problem every year, every year. Did I say I hate Charolais bulls? I hate Charolais bulls.

Gosh, I'm so glad you are okay. You take it easy! When you talked in your previous post about prayer, I'm glad that God was watching over you and you're just bruised up.

Glad you're both okay! I can't say as I'm fond of bulls much either, especially when I'm on foot.

Jennifer said...

Shirley said...

Thank God you and your cowboy are OK! That is just plain frightening!
Do you use a prod in the corrals? Probably wouldn't have worked on that big booger anyway, he looks just plumb ugly!
If you can, get some arnica cream for your bruises and swellings, peppermint oil works good too.

Crystal said...

Oh no that sounds awful. Glad you are okay (and you dont have osteoperosis) though.

Kate said...

That's very scary - hope everyone recovers OK!

Holy crapola woman! Stinkin' bull! Glad you and the cowboy are okay. I say make hamburgers out of him!

Makes me rethink my decision to help the husband load Stubby last night in flip flops.

LindaG said...

Wow. Thank God! Now I know why you're resting. Hope you both get over your bruises quickly.

I guess your dog couldn't help? Don't know how dogs/bulls work. Probably good he wasn't there?

Any chance that bull can be hobbled so it doesn't happen again?

The owners took that bull into get slaughtered so he won't be running anyone else over. They felt bad because they knew he was high-headed when they sent him out here. I wish they had thought better of it before we got the worst end of their decision.

aurora said...

Wow....that's frightening to say the least. I'm so glad you are both okay!!

Mikey said...

Good heavens, I'm glad you're ok!! Both of you. Glad to see your comment above that he went to slaughter. That's a dangerous one there. I know I'd hate to be run down by one of those critters. Very glad you're both ok.

I knew I had to call and check in on you both, I understand if you couldn't get to the phone. I hope you are both feeling better, seems like dad has had a rough year of feeling beaten up! Love you both!!

OMG I'm so glad you are ok! Hopefully that one was going home and away from you!
