    Hey everyone When I get my bottle baby holstein calf I plan on training him to ride. How old does he have to be or how much does he have to weigh to be ridden? I weigh 165.

    Thanks.

    Cattle, especially dairy types, are not amused with this type of activity ! [​IMG] Please go to Church, light a couple dozen candles , and say a few Hail Marys and make sure your health insurance is all paid up and will cover any injury before attempting this venture. [​IMG]

    Lol, and when you are done with all that, wait two years until you ride him. Do be sure to lean all over him & put things on his back from when he is a baby though or you will have the fireworks the previous poster mentioned. I sometimes ride my milk cows to the milking parlor when nothing else gets them there in a timely fashion. They aren't particularly bothered by it.
