Super puncher Dale Brisby explains what it takes to be “cowboy cool” when tending to wheat pasture cattle.
It’s a long title, but take it from self-proclaimed super puncher Dale Brisby that he knows what it takes to be the ultimate hand.
So, what is a super puncher?
It’s the “highest level of cowboy one can attain,” says Brisby. It’s about what you’re doing and how you look doing it. In an earlier video, Brisby explains how to saddle a cow pony so it meets the punchiest of standards.
Now what y’all have been waiting for—The Top 3 Things You Need to Know When Doctoring Wheat Pasture Cattle:
- You need to know the look. To be punchy when doctoring cattle, a lot depends on what you and your horse are wearing. Brisby recommends accessorizing your horse with a set of hobbles around its neck, and slipping on some extra-tall stovetop boots with jingling spurs. That way you can walk with confidence knowing you’re cowboy cool.
- You need to have an opinion. Brisby says you must have an opinion on everything and anything, and a strong one at that. It can be about the weather, the medicine, the cows, or the best type of truck. Say it strong, say it proud, and feel free to change it the next day.
- You need to use horse ear Snapchats. Break out your phone after heading a calf and snap a pic for Snapchat or Instagram. How are people going to know you’re a super puncher if you don’t have proof? Pics or it didn’t happen, right? “How are you going to get the next job? How are you going to get the girl, if you don’t have the pictures?” says Brisby.
Now you have the tools you need to go out there and look cool. As Brisby says, it’s “on to the next one, ol’ son.”
