One possibility, on a lot of squeezes the angle on the squeeze is right for older bulls to hold them securely.On a 2 year old there might not be enough pressure on the sides of the animal, when you squeeze him up you are holding him mainly by the neck,and if you hold him with his head held to the side that will also contribute to shutting off his air. This is 1 possibility, another is just plain shock if he is high strung,and of course internal problems like weak hearts.
