Listen to Repairing After a Fight on: Apple Podcasts | Spotify | Google Podcasts
My husband, Tom, is back again! In today’s episode, we’re talking all about the time we got into a fight right after I posted on social media that working cattle with your spouse does NOT have to end in a fight. At first..I felt like a big ‘ol hypocrite after that one. However, I remembered that this occurrence was not the rule for us – it was the exception.
We’re sharing about what actually started this particular fight, how we made the time and effort to talk and work through this disagreement (and why it’s so important to consistently do this), the value in setting not only your cattle up for success, but you and your partner as well.
The moral of this story is, good movement takes WORK – it’s definitely not a ‘one and done’ thing that will always happen perfectly. Hopefully sharing our experience in this way will remind you that repairing after a fight is far more important than the actual slip-up itself!
In this episode, Repairing After a Fight, we cover:
- What actually started (and led to) this particular fight
- The importance of taking the time to talk and work through disagreements
- Why Tom and I still have fights and disagreements sometimes, even after being well-practiced in the Good Movement principle
- The value in setting not only cattle up for success, but you and your partner too
- The powerful concept of ‘slow is smooth, smooth is fast’, and how this can vary from person to person

More about the Good Movement Draws Good Movement podcast:
In stockmanship (the art and science of handling cattle in a safe, effective, low-stress manner), we have this phrase . . . good movement draws good movement.
It’s this thing that happens when we ask a small group of cattle, maybe a cow, or a pair to move out in a certain direction and their movement draws the whole herd into moving in the same direction.
Good movement happens when we approach the cattle with a positive attitude, read and really listen to what they’re telling us, and communicate accordingly.
We don’t approach the aware, flighty cattle the same as we do the tame, docile cattle. We adjust ourselves, our energy, and approach, and communicate with each differently.
These adjustments help us effectively draw good movement from each, which then draws good movement from the herd. But it starts with us.
The same is true for humans. Good movement starts with us.
Welcome to Good Movement Draws Good Movement, the podcast where farmers, ranchers, and rural folks can grow relationally through awareness, understanding, and effective communication.
Hey, it’s me – T. I’m your host, and I, along with my guests, will be covering topics related to drawing good movement – things like self and social awareness, brain science, positive psychology, extending grace, and so much more.
We’ll share tools that can help you understand why you are the way you are, why others are the way they are, and how you can use that to step out of self-told lies with grace and compassion to draw good movement in conversations, relationships, and life in rural America.
