Our sweet baby is going away to summer band camp!
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 . . .
@Tanya Bailey I guess no one has a sense of humour anymore, take a deep breath and LAUGH we all should know Lester by now, he's not mean like that .
Poor pearl she's stress pooping 💩💩 lol
Xander was doing the best he could. Love to your whole beautiful family!
@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.
Poor pearl is getting pimped out. Lol
Curious why you are breeding or allowing you sanctuary animals to get pregnant ?
Way to go! Epsom salt packs on your bruses, Jamie.
Pearl grew up to fast, it's time for her to become a mom.
I love the first date info from Jamie
I think pearl was afraid of the orange bucket. Everytime she saw it she turned around to get away from it
I'd kill for pearls eyelashes..
Band camp, where in trombone player really knows how to swing😊👨🎤👩🎤📯🎺🎻🥁🎷
So sorry for the loss of Journey. May you be blessed as you have blessed all of these animals.
Any updates on how Pearl is doing?
Would a halter have helped? I've never worked with moving cows, but I've seen that a halter can help guide, if a narrow shoot isn't available.
At least Pearl didn't pull a Santana and go to Billy or Moses.
HI GUYS WHY ARN'T YOU ON FACEBOOK NO MORE, I LOOK FORWARD TO WATCHING YOU ALL EVERY MORNING, I MISS YOU ALL???
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.
Safety first not filming something, prioritizes are off!!
Love the Longhorns my favorite
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.
Is pearl back from camp yet
Poor Pearl. Thats just not the way to do this. It takes time and training so it's not so traumatic. Shouting her name 100 times and chasing her around was just raising the tension. Start working on leading Gracie now and please. apologize to Xander.
That baby is the welcoming committee
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.
Lester and Jamie @imasurvivorsanctuary I have a question.... Who is Maggie's babies daddy? Lol ive always wondered since I dint think yall have a male dog. Lol
When is visiting day at "band camp"?
Lester.....chill. Xander was trying
What if she produces a bull
This is a very active video. I love the talk you gave Pearl. Sweet little pep talk. Zander done fine. I think he got worried when his Mom got kicked. Lester don’t pick on him. GO ISS TEAM !!!!!
Where do y’all live? Why don’t you rehome Tex to someone close that you can still enjoy … what are you doing with the baby bull
I’m thinking Lester is not such a nice guy after all. The way he spoke to Zander was humiliating and embarrassing.
Pearl is going to "MATING CAMP" not Band Camp!!!! Hope her Daddy and Mama aren't going to be upset with Pearl for getting "Knocked up" before animal marriage... LOL
Lester should not trust Xander with the camera anymore. Ruined the whole video.
What about a wide sheet of galvanized siding, two people use as a barrier n ease her toward the trailer. ??? She is such a beauty !
How do you know when to bring her back? In other words, the conception moment - will someone supervise the act?
Awesome speech to Pearl.
Wow. I can’t believe so many people watched this video and think you were SERIOUSLY mad and yelling at Zander. It’s a fun and in jest while you were working. And also people worrying about a teenager being embarrassed. ALL teens are embarrassed. That’s part of the age. Lester and Jamie, your kids will grow up strong, tough, and well rounded. This world has forgotten how to joke around and have a good time.
HAHA! I learned that phrase - "bless your heart" - from a couple of workmates/friends from Atlanta. They had just used it on me and then felt obliged to tell me why they were both laughing so hard...!
Awww Sweet Pearl with those long black eye lashes. She will be just fine.
Congratulations sweetheart 💖 Pearl...
I thought you meant you were going to band those horns, to get rid of that danger issue.
Good job everyone! I'm sorry there's soo many negative Nancy's out there these days!!! I hope y'all keep the videos coming....
Pearl seems small for that big bull?? How big are his calves?
Loved the "band camp" analogy. Our neighbor sometimes grazes his heifers on our property and there always seem to be "mean girls" in the herd!
Hard to believe Pearl is already a year and a half! ❤
Lol think you need to figure a better deal
Oh God now y’all think Lester is abusing Zander. Let it rest. Hell we got hollered at all the time. It didn’t kill us. That’s what’s wrong with people to sensitive. #cancelculturemyass 🤦🏻♀️🤣
Halter train baby Grace, and halter train Pearl before she calves. I've worked with wild horses and that was hard to watch, because she has zero fear of you. it also makes me thankful we settled on our tiny polled Irish Dexters!
Jaime that little talk at the end you had with Pearl made me tear up. As someone who’s been bullied since elementary school, and now 26 and STILL getting bullied by mean girls, your words spoke to me. ❤️
Lester needs to take a chill pill lol. Entirely too high strung today. lol
Are we sure Pearl hasn’t already been to “band camp” at Billie’s? Wasn’t there a “ladies night out” with Santana recently? Baby might be born with crooked horn!😉
Why in heaven's name are you breeding her?
Journey was such a sweet girl. You all gave her the very set of life.
Gotta love a herd animal put in a tight space without a herd for support. 😏. Good job. Loading cows is not easy especially just one.
Y’all know how Lester is he was just giving Xander a hard time
I love that you call it band camp! XD
Poor pearl she does not want to be a mom yet
Nope, I could not be a farmer🙄
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. ❤❤❤
Way to treat Xander, Lester!
What about the black baby bull your dad has? I thought you were going to breed Pearl to him?
Pearl was trying to kick Jamie. The little calf is like I want the camera time. If you have to do this again maybe use one full sheet of ply wood with 4 handles plus 2 ppl. to push up behind her. Oh she did get you Jamie. Stay safe & take care of you all. Thanks for sharing eh :))
😂reminded me of when we moved and had to load our pot belly pig (80lb) Goodtimes 🤣😅
Cracked me up from start to finish 😂
I thought you guys are supposed to be a sanctuary, sanctuary’s do not breed their animals
As bad as trying to get my cat into a cat carrier for a trip to the Vet.. 🙀🐮
Poor Pearl! She was so scared! Wait! Poor Lester stressed out, poor Jamie getting kicked, poor Xander missing the final successful moment...whew! What a to do for band camp! LOL Pearl has some gorgeous eyes! Best wishes for her first time away from home.
Sheesh! Most girls don’t get sent to band camp with the goal of getting knocked up!
omg thats so funny
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
Pearl all grown up
Holy smokes Jami that was very close Jesus what a dangerous job you all have. Stay safe because you will have to do this again. Zander is fine I'm sure he did a great job too.
Pretty much went that way when we tried loading big animals too. 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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hope they don't kill her.
I would love to be able to read animals minds to see what they think about the things people do.
🙏 God bless your heart 💖🙏
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.
Jamie I just love u and when u talk to the animals😊🥰
Why are you breeding more animals?
"Band Camp" lol 😆 What beautiful country omg ur so blessed
Great job guys! Mama is not happy you are taking her baby to camp and wait until she finds out what happened at camp. Tex may have a few words for you Lester. One thing is for sure Pearl will have the prettiest eyes at camp. Love you all. 💕😃
He heard you had animal crackers
Nerve wracking, great job! I'm sure she's going to have 'fun' at band camp!
Maybe Moo wanted a vacation too!
I love Jami prep talk.
Need some pool noodles on those horns
Why mess with mother nature at a high price
Lester a lot of people are camera shy!
You should put a tarp to cover the area where Santana is so she can't see her mom
Boy, she seemed to hate that orange 5 gallon bucket!
Kids these days. Simple taskes
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.
But I did go to Bank Camp!!! It was fun, but I don't think I am going to the same kind of Band Camp that Pearl is going too! Love y'all!! Stay true to your self, Pearl!!
Exciting video. Lots of hard work, Lester. Jami's right about mean girls, be nice. All in all, relationships are more important than videos.
