Maybe....get the cow in before she calves and let HER pack it to the barn. :? :D

Sadly, we are in a terrible service area and I can't see the video. :(

Like that video, wish I had a horse that well trained at this point, although our cows are all calving on grass in spring so there's little need to put a rope on anything. As for sleds I've drilled holes down the sides and used tarp straps over the calf, or like Silver said, hog tie them with a pigging string.
There's 2 dates in time they'll carve on your stone, and everyone knows what they mean.
But what's more important is the time that is known, as that little dash there in between.

Nature gave us all something to fall back on, and sooner or later we all land flat on it.

Found that sled in a Runnings yesterday so snatched one up to see how it works. It does look like it needs to be shortened with a sawzall.

Finally I am where I can download videos, so just now got to see this one. Loved it! That horse is priceless.
I am at the library using their wi-fi. Rural AZ has terrible service so I am handicapped to some extent. Phone hardly
works as well, Mr. FH old flip phone is the best for reception here.

Some times l find it easier to get the cow using the calf as bait

Very true.
We used horses so getting the cow in before she calved, for us, seemed to be easier.
Each outfit is different, for sure. It was embarrassing when someone that helped us taught us to get the
cow in before she calved because we hadn't done it that way. Actually in SW Montana we hadn't shed calved, so
it was new to us.
We did use a sled too, as needed, but then we started calving later and that helped the most. :D

Kudos on that calf sled. Real handy. Just needed a longer rope on it.
