For quite awhile now it's been just my daughter and the vet with me and we have good facilities so we don't have much for problems but I worry about getting in the pen and moving them and having the bull getting away from a fight running over someone or pushed into.

We were fortunate that the weather behaved beautifully on the day we tested bulls this year. It was actually rather relaxing, even though it could be compared to watching paint dry.
I'm kind of glad we tested bulls this year, because 15% of them flunked. Good thing they were inexpensive (sounds better than "cheap") bulls to start with.
