  Once my dad an I were workin some gelve heifers weighin around 980 lbs. through the workin chute givin them their last round of vaccinations and implants. Well, there were a few angus bulls I needed to cut after we were done with the heifers so I had em outside in the hospital pen. Anyway. I knew this one ol bull was kinda rank so I was bein sorta careful around him. Well, we finished up on the hfrs an I decided to go put them away. As I was shuttin the gate on the hfrs and lettin the bulls out I must've forgotten bout the mean bull. So I put em in the barn to casterate em , dad hollars out that I left one heifer in there so he's gonna send her back to me outside, I stupidly walk right into the barn an BANG that ol bull drilled me. Buckin up high in the air like he's in the NFR rodeo of somethin, kickin an bellerin he just nailed me with both his rear hooves right in the leg. My ol leg swells up like a mellon that night an the wife thinks I broke it.
Think it kinda hematosed on me cause there werent no bruise or nothin. He wasnt no little bull neither. Sucker weighted in around 1100 lbs.
 Hope this makes ya feel better , I am a lifelong cattleman. Never done anything else. Born an raised tendin beef cattle. I aughtta known better then ta get in the way of this ol bull.
After dad realized I wuddnt gonna die he starts laughin at me an callin me bulldogger. Ha. Real funny pop.
 Probably wonderin why a fella like me would join a forum like this. Well, I burn about 7 or 8 cds firewood out here in the house in the winter. I live right here at the stockyards so cuttin wood is a big pastime for me. I've allways had a hardon for chainsaws my whole life. Even took an OSHA approved chainsaw saftey cource a few years back.
Take care.

Hi ya and welcome.

My 'limited' experience has been that it don't necessarily take a 'big un' to hurt ya.

However, bought me some big ole Brahma Cows one time and one a them put me over the fence 'bunches' a times before she settled down. She weren't really that mean, it's just that for a spell she had a hatred of humans!  She'd stand there and look at ya just a minute, lower her head and paw the ground a couple a times, and if you knowed what was good you'd BETTER get on the other side of a fence and hope she didn't jump ::)

Hope your cut heals up well and fast. I hate using table saws and try only using them with pusher sticks unless I am running a 4x8 over it.  I hate using tile saws without push sticks for this very reason. Too easy to chop something up with flesh on it.

What is this referring to? and who cut themselves?  Sounds serious, but don't know who.   ???  ???

Dunno how many times I've hurt myself from brain cramps. Lost count. I winged myself in a table saw once. I was working in a camper plant and we had taken the blade guard off  because the small pieces would jam between it and the blade. Guess what, the piece hit a knot, kicked back and my finger met the blade. Off on compo when my replacement lost most of three fingers.

I knew an old chap that done it 3 times in the last few years of his retirement. All the injuries was clean through to the other side of each finger. He was elderly and I know he operated his tools unsafely, even though he insisted he was safe. But, when your alone you do things without thinking. One of the main problems I think he had was with space to operate his power tools safely.


cheers
Move'n on.
