    Xander has his priorities on straight, the safety of his mother is more important than capturing any video so if you want to be mad, be mad at Lester. 💯 Okay, on with the shit show . . .

    @Catherine Harrison that was a lil harsh on Lester. My father did what your describing to my brother. I was raised with it. And I was always the filter to calm that between them. But what Lester was doing was poking fun and Zander knew that. He was smiling and putting his head down like. O boy it's coming. He was enjoying it also. There was no ugliness in that at all and his face did not show any signs of anything but all of them laughing.

    Why did you leave us hanging, you did not show us when you dropped off pearl and let us see how she was going with the move. I look for part #2 and could not find one. That was not right, I think. So are you going to show us part 2? I know you said the guy did not want to be on camera, but you could have shown us pearl at the new place. The guy did not have to be in the post.

    First I like to say your channel is one of my favorites. Lester you seem like such a good hearted man. Jamie you seem very nice to. I like that you have a natural beauty about you. All the kids seem like great kids. With that being said. You’re sanctuary, you save animals from slaughter. As you know everyday animals get killed because of over population.. farms, shelters etc. I just don’t understand why your breeding pearl instead of fixing her. You have so many animals that ur saving why breed more when living animals need saving. I feel that breeding and birthing more animals on ur farm is defeating the purpose of your sanctuary. You should save animals if you want more bulls. I just don’t understand why? Every animal I own is fixed because when I go a shelter and see the animals on death row it kills my heart. I feel helpless because I can’t save them. I never understood why people breed instead of saving existing living animals. Yes Tex is my favorite and you saved him from death. I understand you want his blood line but why? Don’t you have enough goats etc. already. Are you gonna keep all five bulls now.. then Santi will breed again making 6, then the new boy will breed I’m sure then 7 bulls, it goes on on on . Why? Take care of what you have and be a sanctuary saving death row animals. I’m just saying it bothers me that while ur breeding pearl other bulls are getting killed.

    I think your approach needs a little help. That sweet cow was doing what comes natural she was afraid..if you get the cows used to the trailer they won't be fighting you. And then you won't be belittling that son of yours.

    No hate whatsoever just my two sense; Lester is definitely in a mood in this video and yes you can tell from the. Beginning. we all go through life Thats not an excuse. Working around animals in dangerous and they need to be trained from a young age especially when trailers and hauling are involved, animals and the people ! I enjoy this channel and the videos but This was a hard one for me to watch. Not everyone is animals experience or cares to be. Being harsh even if it’s their kind of “playing” won’t interest the child. Not to mention the animals feel it too. And as for everyone arguing about the bless your heart, it goes both ways. Hope I didn’t upset anyone cause we still love y’all and the channel !

    I agree with some if these comments about Zander , he did look a Lil embarrassed by Lester's fussing at him. But im also sure if need be Jami will correct Lester in private and im sure if it was taken in a bad way from Zander, Lester would apologize. Now its none of our business and he doesnt have to make a public video apologizing like some people have suggested. Sheesh yall act like yall are perfect. Dont mess it up for the rest of us that enjoy watching their videos.

    Such a funny video, aww Pearl is all grown up I'm sorry but I wish ppl would stop making this video into a soap opera. I heard Lester bust Xander's balls and honestly Jami would not allow Lester to humiliate her son. Xander knows Lester personally unlike any of us and they most likely have that type of relationship where they mess with eachother. Making Lester out to be this horrible person is wrong, it's the way boys play with eachother. He does it to Jake and LE too and it's out of love I am sure. There is not a mean bone in that man's body and all u bullies who make things bigger than they are and make Lester to be the bad guy here are just wrong. Lester and Jami I love ur blended family and know that there is only love there. You guys are awesome im sorry there so many Mean Martha's out there who are dying to make u guys look bad. Not everyone believes the made up scenario the "fans" have invented. ❤❤❤

    It's ok Zander, you got the scary action of her kicking your Mom and how brave she was, just keeping on getting the job done and you got Pearl charging at Lester and him dodging her horns, it wouldn't have been all that exciting to see her go up the ramp, you showed her in the trailer, so we knew she quickly went up the ramp. I'm glad nobody got hurt, some close calls there, captured by Camera Man Zander. I'm so glad that Santiana didn't decide to come to Pearls rescue, she seemed to be trying to figure out what you two were doing to her girl. I guess she saw that Pearl could defend herself. When Jami was talking to Pearl and said that if the other girls were mean to her, to kill them with kindness. I hope she doesn't have a short attention span and just heard the part about killing them if they were mean to her. No more band camp for her! LOL

    Oooooeeeeee... that video had me on EDGE! Sooooo glad Jami wasn't hurt too bad with that kick! I've seen cows hurt ppl pretty bad when stressed like that. Next time park the trailer in her pasture a few days prior and put her feed in it. They quickly learn the trailer is OK. We've done that with new horses several times. But first horse we got that wasn't trailer trained was a big draft horse cross... he was huge! We quickly learned horse trailers are TOUGH cause he kicked that trailer tons on the way home. And after that we decided never to do that again and we trained all our horses to ride trailers. Hope Jamis leg isn't bruised too bad. And poor Xander musta been pretty scared too. Those young folk aren't used to working big animals like that... let alone film it. Lol! 💜 from Alberta 🇨🇦

    Why in heavens name are you breeding??????????????????? Go to an auction and see what breeding does to these poor animals. You're supposed to be a sanctuary, not a breeding farm. You create more bedlam than needs to be. Couldn't you see that that orange bucket was her enemy? Use more common sense when you work with these guys. And then to put that huge feeding trough in there, that was not too bright. You would have had more control if you had tied a rope to her horns. I am no expert, but I have worked with large animals for over 60 years and it upsets me when people rile up an animal when there is no need to. If you are calm, most times the animal stays calm. Sheesh, this got my goat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    What I don’t get is how you are going to keep the boys and girls separated to prevent inbreeding, especially if Pearl has a male. The one pasture is too little for Tex and you’re going to possibly add more male(s) to it? Am I missing something? I agree with the comment about making the babies friendlier by more human touch and I thought you were going to do that with Gracie, but it doesn’t seem to be the case. Oh well. I feel sorry for Pearl. She has no idea what’s going on. I’ll be glad when she gets back home.

    That was scary. Hope Pearl didn’t leave a bruise on Jami. Should have put the food on the trailer to begin with. Santianna didn’t like Pearl being rallied up either. By the way Lester, that “stall” is called a loading corral. Y’all should work on getting Pearl and Gracie to where you can handle and love on them. You wouldn’t have much trouble getting them corralled and onto a trailer then. Oh. And Jami, “bless your heart” has different meanings depending on the situation and context. It can be sarcastic and it can be truly meaningful. At least that’s how it is here in Alabama.
